Compile error in sample UWP code RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to run the PhotoLab sample from the UWP documentation and am getting this error:

    Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
    Error DEP6957: Failed to connect to device '' using Universal Authentication. Please verify the correct remote authentication mode is specified in the project debug settings. COMException - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007274D) [0x8007274D] PhotoLab

    Can anyone suggest a solution?

  • Problems related to samples should be posted where the sample came from. We have no knowledge of whatever this sample you are talking about is. This forum is also for C#-specific questions only so even if we had the code we wouldn't be able to help much.

    The error itself indicates the app is trying to connect to what looks like a web app running on your local machine. Most likely you are not running that web app and it fails. Refer to the samples documentation and they probably tell you how to start both apps (probably in the same solution) so it will work.

  • Hi KeithLovell,
    For questions about UWP, it is recommended to ask the questions in Microsoft Q&A forum and you can get more professional answer.
    Thank you for your understanding.
