Xbox One Deploy Error

As I was trying to deploy one of my apps to the Xbox One, I ran into a strange error that ate a lot of my time to fix.
I don’t think you’ll be getting in this touble if you start from scratch but considering a lot of the new apps on Xbox will be existing apps, this might apply

The Error

DEP0700 : Registration of the app failed. 
Deployment Register operation with target volume C: on Package xxx_xxx_x86__wr8y21pj9dftj
from: (AppxManifest.xml) failed with error 0x80073CFD.
See for help diagnosing app deployment issues. (0x80073cfd)


  • Make sure package.appxanifest TargetDeviceFamily includes Windows.Xbox or Windows.Universal.

    <TargetDeviceFamily Name="Windows.Xbox" MinVersion="" MaxVersionTested="10.0.10586.0" />
    <TargetDeviceFamily Name="Windows.Universal" MinVersion="" MaxVersionTested="10.0.10586.0" />
  • Fix Visual Assets

    • Scale 200 required. This is the default scale for Xbox and you might not have all your assets if you only targeted small factor screens before.
  • Package Name
    • Some package names would fail to deploy. Could not find a clear pattern but mostly when a ‘.’ is involved it tends to fail. If nothing else works, consider playing with the package name.
