Some time ago I could to have app instaled from Windows Store and run from VS the same app when developing new version.

But now if I have the app from MS Store and I try to run the same app from VS Error DEP0700 is showed.

To deal with this problem I must uninstal the app and next I can run newly developed version in VS.

Could I do anything to not uninstall, app version instaled from MS Store and allow coexistence?

Universal Windows Platform (UWP)

    Hi @BitSmithy ,

    Unfortunately, this is not possible.

    Since your developed version and the installed version from MS Store have the same Package Family Name, the visual studio will report registration and deployment Error DEP0700, multi-version UWP apps cannot be installed with same PFN.

    Thank you.
