WP8 Export: App title not carrying over to WP8

  • Link to .capx file (required!):

    dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/554309/NewEmptyProject.capx (This is just a new empty project)

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Create new empty project

    2. Export to Windows Phone 8

    3. In the exported project, open Properties\WMAppManifest.xml

    Observed result:

    In C2, my project properties title was "New project". If a user were to publish this app without changing anything, then their user-facing title would have been changed to "NewProject", aka your `[[[shortname]]]`.

    Expected result:

    I would expect that the title I set in C2 be carried over to WMAppManifest.xml in the parts that were end-user-facing.

    I would like to propose that two places be changed in WMAppManifest.xml:

    1. In the "App" tag, on the "Title" attribute.

    2. In the "TemplateFlip" tag, in the "Title" tag.

    Browsers affected:

    Chrome: n/a

    Firefox: n/a

    Internet Explorer: n/a

    Operating system & service pack:

    Windows 8.1 Enterprise, 64-bit

    Thank you for all your hard work,

    • Dan -

    ps - As I use the C2\exporters\html5\metro\package.appxmanifest as a guide, would this bug be as simple as replacing `[[[shortname]]]` with `[[[displayname]]]` or `[[[appdisplayname]]]`? Or, are there any other hidden complexities that I'm not seeing?
