Windows 8 app developers now receiving detailed crash files if their app fails certification
If you are an app developer for the Windows 8 platform, nothing is worse than having your app fail certification and not knowing why. Now, Microsoft is offering a detailed crash report to those who failed certification due to their app hanging or crashing.
“Most commonly, an app fails certification because it crashed or didn’t respond during the certification process. Due to any number of reasons an app might crash, it can be hard to know what happened and how to fix it, especially if you don’t experience the crash locally. Starting on Monday, 1/28, when an app fails certification for either of these reasons, we’ll send a crash file with the certification report. You’ll be able to see exactly what happened during the crash, which should help you identify and fix the issue,” Microsoft stated in an official blog post.
