Access Denied Exception on WinUI app while using PeerFinder.FindAllPeersAsync()

Gueztt 1 Reputation point

While using the PeerFinder API form Windows.Networking.Proximity I get the exception UnauthorizedAccessException: Access is denied. (0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)) when using PeerFinder.FindAllPeersAsync(). I'm unable to trace the reason for this. I have enabled App Capabilities for Proximity and Internet.

The same code when used in Console App works just fine.

The issue is also reproducible on UWP app.

Steps to reproduce the bug

  1. Run the app and click on Search for Peers Button.
