Issue with unexpected capability Microsoft.storeFilter.core.notSupported_8wekyb3d8bbwe

New Contributor

Dear comunity,

we are preparing an update of our app on the Microsoft partner Center portal.

After uploading the new “.appxupload” package, in addition to the capabilities we defined in the app manifest, we also find the following capability: "Microsoft.storeFilter.core.notSupported_8wekyb3d8bbwe"

We tried to execute again the app build, also verifying the app manifest, but we still obtain such extra capability that seems to be added after the upload of “.appxupload” package.

We also tried to search in the Web for it, but we didn’t get any clarification.

Can you please provide us clarifications about such extra capability?

Can be an issue during review phase for the app we have to release?


Thank you in advance,

Kind regards,

I was able to reach the Microsoft Technical Support. They said that "Microsoft.storeFilter.core.notSupported_8wekyb3d8bbwe" capability is automatically added to packages which do not support Windows 10 Core (Windows IoT Core).
This capability won't impact app functionalities.
