[UWP] no ads display since r227

  • Problem Description

    Construct 2 will not show test ads or live after exporting a UWP app and running in Visual Studio 2015. The adds will only show if you are on r227 or lower. You can choose any size ad or ad location and same results no ads show unless you are using r227 or lower. I randomly checked r233, r239, r244 and r246 with same results no ads are displayed when testing in Visual Studio.
