Background Task Activation error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I have background task which works fine while creating Appx interactively through visual studio IDE. While the Appx created thorough Jenkins build(see commands below), the background task goes error and throwing message "The background task with entry point "Project_BackgroundTask.Class_Service" and name "Class_Service" failed to activate with error code 0x80131522." and the background task is not working . what are the possible reasons  for this ?

    <Message Text="xcopy $(SOLUTION_DIR)\$(TARGET)\xx...Bridge.exe.$(SOLUTION_DIR)\$(TARGET)\PackageX\UnPacked\DesktopBridge /R /Y"/>
    <Exec Command="xcopy $(SOLUTION_DIR)\$(TARGET)\xx...Bridge.exe$(SOLUTION_DIR)\$(TARGET)\PackageX\UnPacked\DesktopBridge /R /Y" />
    <Exec Command="&quot;$(WINSDK_DIR)MakeAppX.exe&quot; pack /d &quot;$(SOLUTION_DIR)\$(TARGET)\PackageX\UnPacked&quot; /p &quot;$(SOLUTION_DIR)\$(TARGET)\PackageX\App.appx&quot; /l" />
    <Exec Command="&quot;$(WINSDK_DIR)signtool.exe&quot; sign /fd SHA256 /a /f &quot;$(PMPROJECT_DIR)AppClient_StoreKey.pfx&quot; &quot;$(SOLUTION_DIR)\$(TARGET)\PackageX\App.appx&quot;" />
    <Message Text="30_BUILD_PKG_END"/

    Thanks for the help...

    It seems the issue is related to the Jenkins build, you should be able to ask it in the Jenkins build' forum.
