This came out of an GitHub Issue:
But since this is a own issue and due to a bug in VS and does have a workaroudn I thought I make a post here.

Here is my project:

The issue I get is this:
error APPX0502: File 'C:\projects\moneyfox\Src\MoneyFox.Windows\bin\x86\Debug\arm\MoneyFox.Windows\MoneyFox.Windows_2.6.89.0_language-de.appx' not found.

The error can vary a bit. I had it localy as well but not with the exact same message. There is already a fix in a VS 2017 who solves this (I connected to per RDP and installed the update before executing the build). Is there a way to update VS before Build is executed? Or do I have to wait until the build worker image is updated?

Also, there is a work around here:

But since there is already an official fix, I guess this would be the prefereable way.

    Hi Nino,

    Thanks for reporting about the issue. It's been filed and there is a temp workaround available:
