Hi, give the signed app a try again now. This is an ongoing issue that the dev team has been unable to prevent from cropping up. Still working on it though.
Yep, that worked, thanks. So what's the procedure when this fails consecutively? I don't mind hitting rebuild occasionally, but today no amount of rebuilding worked until you made 'the adjustment'.
Also, I don't need to fix the publisher if the PGB signing is working, but is there any way of changing the publisher from 'CN=Apache Cordova Team' in the Windows app manifest?
This worked for a couple of builds yesterday, but it is failing again today. Same error as everyone else is reporting:
CertUtil: -importPFX command FAILED: 0x80070002 (WIN32: 2 ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) CertUtil: The system cannot find the file specified. My "Personal"
Again, building a debug version (that I can't run) works fine.
If I could sign the appx myself I'd be able to work around this, but as I mentioned above, the publisher in the generated appx manifest is identified as CN=Apache Cordova Team. Nothing I have tried will change this and as you can see from above, SignTool won't play.
Could you expedite a long-term solution to this issue? In the meantime, if there is any way of making the appx signable outside of PGB please let me know what I'd need to do. TIA!
This morning the Windows signed build works again AND the publisher name is correct in the Windows appx manifest, so thanks for that. At least I can sign my own appx now if the signed build fails. If anyone is interested in how to do this, you need a .pfx certificate (with private key). In the line below %PGKEYS_PW% is an environment variable containing my private key password. Just replace the whole thing with your password or define your own PGKEYS_PW variable.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\x64\signtool" sign /fd SHA256 /a /f "C:\path-to-your-signing-cert.pfx" /p %PGKEYS_PW% yourapp.appx
You might have signtool.exe somewhere other than the path I mention above, but if you can't find it you need to install the Windows 10 SDK @ Windows 10 SDK - Windows app development
