ApplicationActivationManager::ActivateApplication() API Failing RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a Windows NT service running on Local System Account which will launch a UWP App. While testing in Windows 10 build 16241, it failed to launch the UWP app. But it works in Windows 10 build 15063. The API ApplicationActivationManager::ActivateApplication() failed with the error code 0x80270254.

    The application event viewer log shows the following error.


    AppX Deployment operation failed for package AD2F1837.AppNamexxx_7.0.1.0_x86__v10z8vjag6ke6 with error 0x80073CF9. The specific error text for this failure is: Deployment Register operation rejected on Package AD2F1837.AppNamexxx_7.0.1.0_x86__v10z8vjag6ke6 from: AppxManifest.xml install request because the Local System account is not allowed to perform this operation.


    Could you please help to resolve this?

  • Hi Sree2017,

    Welcome to the Developing Universal Windows apps forum! In this forum, we are focusing on developing UWP app issues.

    Your issue is more relative to your OS or your account or the API, and the ApplicationActivationManager is the desktop API, you can ask it in Windows desktop forum, if you have issue with the system, you can ask it in the technet forum.
