    Since upgrading to the latest VS 2017 update, version 15.8, everything builds fine but we get this error when trying to deploy to devices with a UWP build.

    DEP0700: Registration of the app failed. [0x80073CF6] AppxManifest.xml(28,27): error 0x80070002: Cannot install or update package MyApp_ph1m9x8skttmg because the splash screen image [SplashScreen.png] cannot be located. Verify that the package contains an image that can be used as a splash screen for the application, and that the package manifest points to the correct location in the package where this splash screen image can be found.

    Any ideas?

    THanks!

    QA just hit this internally yesterday. It has something to do with the later VS update - it didn't use to happen with the previous VS update. Unfortunately at this point we haven't investigated it yet, so I don't have a concrete solution. Did you try poking at the manifest in Visual Studio to see if you could fix the splashscreen issue?

    Found a workaround that you can use for now until we come up with a real fix. Open generated project.vcxproj, find splashscreen setting and change ExcludeFromResourceIndex property to false:

    Code (csharp):
    1. <None Include="Assets\SplashScreen.scale-200.png">
    2.      <DeploymentContent>true</DeploymentContent>
    3.      <ExcludeFromResourceIndex>false</ExcludeFromResourceIndex>
    4. </None>

    btw, the workaround is not working for my problem.

    I have a different error:
    2>MakeAppx : error : The mapping file can't be parsed. The error occurs at line 77.
    2>MakeAppx : error : Package creation failed.
    2>MakeAppx : error : 0x8007000b - Es wurde versucht, eine Datei mit einem falschen Format zu laden.

    For this error you'll have to downgrade to Visual Studio 2017 15.7.x. We're still investigating the underlying issue.

    Unity creates it when you build to UWP with IL2CPP scripting backend.

    "Supported API test" will pass when you build in Master configuration. That is the configuration you're supposed to use to ship your game.

    These errors:

    Code (csharp):
    1. Image reference "Assets\Square44x44Logo.png": The image "C:\Program Files\windowsapps\59971sarhansoft.thwart_1.1.6.0_x86__scsytny28b9p2\Assets\Square44x44Logo.png" is missing from the package.
    2. Image reference "Assets\Square150x150Logo.png": The image "C:\Program Files\windowsapps\59971sarhansoft.thwart_1.1.6.0_x86__scsytny28b9p2\Assets\Square150x150Logo.png" is missing from the package.
    3. Image reference "Assets\Wide310x150Logo.png": The image "C:\Program Files\windowsapps\59971sarhansoft.thwart_1.1.6.0_x86__scsytny28b9p2\Assets\Wide310x150Logo.png" is missing from the package.
    can be worked around by setting "ExcludeFromResourceIndex" property in the project file to false.

    I am running Unity 2018.2.21f1 and I am still encountering this problem. I have Visual Studio 2017 version 15.9.8 and would like to avoid downgrading. I tried to apply the workaround mentioned earlier, but I cannot locate the ExcludeFromResourceIndex property anywhere in the solution file (.sln) or the project file (.vcxproj). If you or someone could help point me to where I should be looking or offer other solutions for this, that would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    You are likely facing a different issue. You cannot locate that because we fixed it in an earlier release. Without knowing the specifics of the errors you get, I can't really help you.

    It's the same issue as the original post described with the SplashScreen.png not being located error. I was previously building with .NET, but I switched to IL2CPP because it said that .NET was deprecated and have gotten this error since then.

    Can you paste the full contents of the output window in VS after you get this error?

    Update on my issue: It turns out that updating to Unity 2018.2.21f1 did actually fix the issue since it includes the fix, it just so happened that for some reason my project didn't properly open with the new version the first few times I tried it, so the issue is fixed for me.
