Awarded as Microsoft MVP for the 5th time - [Windows Platform Dev]

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Another October for me. The golden moment of my life when I first received the MVP award from Microsoft in the year 2010 and since then continuing it. It’s the 5th continuous year when I received the award from Microsoft for the contributions I have done for the developer community. First three years I was Silverlight MVP, last year it changed to Client Development MVP and this year it changed to Windows Platform Development MVP. I would like to share my sincere thanks to Microsoft, Biplab Paul (Community Program Manager, South Asia), my blog readers and
the whole Microsoft Developer Community for their support and encouragements. Without which, it would be quite difficult. And here’s the prestigious mail from Microsoft:  I am happy to be a Microsoft Technology blogger and helping the community to the fullest on my off time. And yes, last but not least, my sincere “Thanks” to Microsoft once again for awarding me this prestigious title. Don’t forget to connect with me on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and subscribe to my feed for all the updates I share over the social networking channels.

Pack your Windows App package yourself

A while ago, one of my Windows Store apps was in a weird stall – I’ve updated the app to support Windows 8.1 only, but published version was still targeting 8.0. After uploading new version of the app, I had to remove the 8.0 version due to some validation errors – the mistake! I was left in a situation where I couldn’t publish my new 8,1 app because the process required having the 8.0 along the new one. Uploading 8.0 version didn’t work either because the process required that any new upload has to have its version number incremented. An option
to just end the Windows 8.0 support at this point would be a helpful solution to the problem, but that option is not available until both versions of the app are validated and published. I had to manually increment the old app’s version (targeting 8.0) and put it up there for validation to be able to continue publishing the new app (targeting 8.1). Luckily, the application’s version is easily modified in AppxManifest.xml and Appx files are just archive files, right? Yes, but any modification made to package content will invalidate package signature so it’s necessary to recreate it. Creating the package Starting from existing...(Read whole news on source site)
