Microsoft fixes app store bug

17 AUG 2012

Microsoft said it had rectified an issue which had prevented some Windows Phone users from installing new apps, and that it has resumed publishing new titles from developers.

The vendor recently said that there had been a problem with the digital certificates used to sign titles. This led to the app submission process being closed to developers, with consumers advised to “wait for us to correct the problem”.

In a blog post, Microsoft said that developers who were in the process of publishing apps do not need to take any further action, and that titles will “continue through the certification and publishing workflow as normal”.

Likewise, users who had encountered errors were advised “you don’t need to do anything to start downloading new apps or updates once the repair has finished rolling out”.

Microsoft is in the process of updating its app store infrastructure, introducing its new Dev Center to replace the App Hub developer portal.
