Can't sign into windows store when creating app package

edited May 2016 in Questions And Answers

Hi I get a window like this:

Create app packages

Sign in to the Windows Store
"Visual studio encountered an error and can't contact the Microsoft account service."

press button, same thing.

May be related to this. Note, the suggested fix is for vs2012 and, the devenv.exe.config isn't a thing anymore. (Also, why would I have to do all that?)


This is VS2015 update 2.
