‘The app didn’t start’ Issue

I was presented with this error message upon launching my newly upgraded 8.1 Windows Store app. In the process of upgrading I also upgraded all the related Nuget packages. What I didn’t see was that one of the packages added an App.config file to my Windows Store project.

One hour later…

apparently this App.config causes the app to crash upon activation with no additional information.

Solution: Delete the App.config file from your store project.
