I’m trying to update one of my games in the Windows Phone store - I needed to add ratings to it to stop it being taken down, but when I resubmitted it, it failed certification due to startup issues.
I think I know what this so am trying to resolve it. The game was built for WP7 using XNA, so I have to port it to MonoGame to be able to release it. I’ve ported similar vintage code before without problems but I’ve run into a wall this time.
It seems there is something wrong with the current development build of the MonoGame installer. I had problems back in April with this too which I gave up on resolving. Yesterday I downloaded a new copy of the installer, ran it, created an empty MonoGame Windows 10 UAP project, and tried to build it.
