UWP Has anyone gotten xboxlive_sprite_add_from_gamerpicture to work?

    I am working on a Creators Program game.
    I have this code (from a sample):
    var _a = 0;
    var _num = xboxlive_get_user_count();
    for (var i = 0; i < _num; ++i;)
    var _uid = xboxlive_get_user(i);
    if _uid != pointer_null
    global.UserName[_a] = xboxlive_gamedisplayname_for_user(_uid);
    global.UserScore[_a] = xboxlive_gamerscore_for_user(_uid);
    global.UserRep[_a] = xboxlive_reputation_for_user(_uid);
    global.XBLPic = xboxlive_sprite_add_from_gamerpicture(_uid, 256, 0, 0);

    Of this code, the only thing that is returning a result in the array is xbox_live_gamedisplayname(). The rest of the xboxlive_ functions don't return useful values.

    Then I have this code in an async Image Loaded event in the same object:
    if ds_map_find_value(async_load, "id") == global.XBLPic
    if ds_map_find_value(async_load, "status") >= 0
    sprite_index = global.XBLPic;

    This Image Loaded event never fires.
    When I try this same approach in a Windows app pulling an image from the web with sprite_add and the Image Loaded event, it works as expected.

    Has anyone gotten xboxlive_sprite_add_from_gamerpicture working from a UWP Creators app (not ID@Xbox), I'd love to know.
    Or if anyone can confirm that this is not supported, that would be great too.
