Software Capability CAP_ENTERPRISE_SHARED_DATA Causes HRESULT: 0x80073CF6, Package could not be registered Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of my windows phone 8.1 apps will not longer deploy to an emulator or device. I am using visual studio 2015 and deploying was working previously.  I can still deploy other applications.

    The Error is HRESULT: 0x80073CF6, "Package could not be registered"

    This error appears to be caused by my WindowsPhoneReservedAppInfo.xml file using<SoftwareCapability Id=" ID_CAP_ENTERPRISE_SHARED_DATA " /> I am deploying to enterprise phones by side loading currently with no plans to move my application to the windows store. I need this software capability because my devices are locked down with a wehlockdown.xml file with defined roles. The sole purpose of this application is to allow switching between the defined roles in my lock-down file.

    Is there alternative to using ID_CAP_ENTERPRISE_SHARED_DATA?
    Is there a different/better way to allow switching between lock-down roles?
    What changes stopped this software capability from working?

    I can get the deploy to work by removing the software capability and deploying then adding it back in and redeploying but then running the application I get Exception thrown: 'System.UnauthorizedAccessException'.


    I have two different OS versions on my devices (Panasonic FZ-E1 Toughpads).  On the higher version is where I am getting the error. OS Version 8.10.15165.177 get the error. While Os Version 8.10.15155.167
