Failing Windows8.1 Certification But NOT Windows 8

  • Link to .capx file (required!):

    dropbox.com/s/w764avyo9qk6cmu/win8.capx

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Export for Windows 8.1

    2. Test and compile App Package in VS2013

    3. Put onto Windows App Store for certification

    Observed result:

    Windows 8.1 export for Construct is broken During certification:

    Your app doesn't meet requirement 3.2. Learn more

    Commons reasons why apps fail this requirement:

    The app crashes on launch.

    The app crashes randomly or repeatedly.

    The app freezes and the user has to close and restart the app.

    The app requires a Windows component library that the Windows Store doesn't support. To avoid this, make sure your development tools are up-to-date.

    Expected result:

    Multiple people are experiencing this problem making entirely different apps. Even though the app tests fine on our machines, tablets, and phones - they wont pass certification.

    If you export for Windows 8, it WILL pass certification. The same app will pass fine.

    Browsers affected:

    Chrome: no

    Firefox: no

    Internet Explorer: no

    Operating system & service pack:

    Windows 8

    Windows 8.1

    x64

    Construct 2 version:

        I was running Release 148 but I tried 149 too.

    Here is the crash log from MS. Everyone gets very similar and not very friendly crash logs. I believe it may have something to do with Windows 8.1 tablets.

  • Does it work for you on Windows 8.1? The crash logs are not useful; we need to be able to reproduce the problem or at least find out more detail about the exact error. I can export and run it on Windows 8.1 using VS2013 so it seems to work just fine.

  • Try Construct 3

  • Thats the issue. I've compiled and tested on all kinds of Windows 8.1 devices. The other students I'm working with also have the issue with entirely different projects. They can compile, run/test on 8.1 or 8, but can't pass cert when the project is done for 8.1
