Hello gang,

 

I am attempting to make my first submission to the Windows Store, but the "Store" menu (on the Project menu) is not visible.  I checked Tools -> Customize and the option is available but Reset or adding the command to any other menu does not make it visible anywhere. 

 

That said, this is a Windows Phone app, not a Windows Store app.... so there is a real concern that I am screwing this up on multiple levels.

 

After you're done laughing, let me know what dumb@$$ thing am I doing.

 

EDIT: I opened one of my Windows Store apps and the menu is available, so what is the process of submitting a phone app?

 

Thanks.

So, for Windows Phone applications there's no in-VS store association that needs to be done. You just need to build a release package (Any CPU profile), and then head on over to http://dev.windowsphone.com , then click on publish or dashboard in the main navigation area to start submitting your application!(You'll upload your release build at some point there)

Thanks Johnny,  I'll check it out.

 

EDIT:  You were right, the submission is web based as opposed to "Windows Store" apps.  Thank you again.

 

It was relatively painless to submit the app.

Is Any CPU a requirement for the app store? I'm just curious.

I guess if they put out x86 and ARM based phones, you'd want that since .NET would just rebuild it's MSIL code for that CPU

I do not believe so, you can set your project to ARM or x86, but why would you want to?  (not sarcastic, really want to know)

As of this morning, about 15 hours after submission the process is; "Status: Processing certification".  I will update here how long it takes to run though for me.  This is a very simple app that reads an XML file and when the user makes a selection audio plays.  So the process may be quicker for this app than others.

Referencing a library that's not Any CPU or an unmanaged library.
