I'm getting "This submission failed with error code(s) 1201" and I don't have a clue what that means.

Please, help.

Hi federicoparra,

Did you code your application with visual studio?  If so,is it Visual studio 17 or 15 or some other version? What's the version of your  Microsoft.NETCore.UniversalWindowsPlatform package? If you use the Visual studio 17,please use the 5.3.0 or higher version of the package. If my guess is not correct, could you provide more details for us to analyze your issue?

Best regards

I had same problem with Microsoft.NETCore.UniversalWindowsPlatform version 6.2.2 and VS 2017 15.8.8. After i roll Microsoft.NETCore.UniversalWindowsPlatform back to 6.1.9 submission worked.

Same here, after updating our app to UniversalWindowsPlatform 6.2.2 we're getting "This submission failed with error code(s) 1201" with no additional message. A bit strange releasing new version of this NuGet if it's not yet accepted in the Store.

I received the same error with 6.2.2 today.

I encountered the same issue. v6.2.2 actually seems to have been removed from Nuget:

I have the same issue today. Using Microsoft.NETCore.UniversalWindowsPlatform 6.1.9. This is so frustrating fixing errors at every step of the way. Why can't things work like it does when running in debug mode?
