we have a problem to build a project for windows. We have the special charackter "&" (et) in our company name. Building the Android version is no problem, but the Windows 10 UAP failed with the following error:
CordovaApp.Windows10 : CordovaApp.Windows10._GetProjectArchitecture : arm -> ...\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v14.0\AppxPackage\Microsoft.AppXPackage.Targets(2360,5): error APPX0002: Task 'ExtractStoreAssociationInformation' failed. An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line 4, position 33.
If we remove the "&" in the author and publisher display name fields the building ends with success, but verififying in the windows store failed, because the company name and the publisher display name are not the same.
Has anyone a suggestion? Is this a bug in XDK?
This is indeed a bug with the Intel XDK build system! I will engineer and apply a fix, and reply with the issue has been resolved. You won't need to update the Intel XDK, as the fix is being made on our build servers.
UPDATE: The build system has been patched. You should be good to go!
