I have an Edge Extension with Native Messaging. It works perfectly well if the appx manifest file has the following:

<TargetDeviceFamily Name="Windows.Universal".

Yet, the validation fails on upload to Microsoft Store because apparently the TargetFamily should be Windows.Desktop.

So, which is right? <TargetDeviceFamily Name="Windows.Universal" or <TargetDeviceFamily Name="Windows.Desktop"?

Note that the moment I set the target family to Windows.Desktop the extension does not appear in Microsoft Edge!

Thank you.

How long have you published your Edge extension to the Microsoft Store?

It takes up to 72 hours to complete the process for publishing. You can refer to the note in Publishing to the Microsoft Store.

If you check it without problem, have you followed this steps for publishing it to the store and have you added the extension following the steps in Adding an extension?
