I saw your post - not certain we have the same problem. I have a PFX key generated from VS along with the package name from the store.

When I compile the UWP module I get:

Code:
Package creation succeeded.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c ""C:/Program Files (x86)/Windows Kits/10/bin/x86\signtool.exe" sign /a /v /fd SHA256 /f "C:\ProgramData/GameMakerStudio2/Cache/runtimes\runtime-2.0.6.93\WindowsUAP\WinUWPRunner_TemporaryKey.pfx" "D:\GameMaker BubblePop\Version 2\LetsPop_1.0.0.0\LetsPop.appx""

SUCCESS : Package Program Complete
The app installs on machine where I generate the app (and where GM2 is installed). My problem is when I try to install the app on a Surface Pro - it fails with a certificate error. This might very well by my problem/error, just can't figure it out. I have the Surface Pro in development mode on Windows 10.

I am using a Windows 10 desktop for development.

How are you installing the application on a surface pro - you should be using Device Portal (and providing the certificate) OR you have to ensure the certificate you generated is installed on the target machine properly (which can be tricky), Device Portal really makes this much easier.

I see, there is not the same problem than me, as at least you are able to compile the appx with the temporary pfx file.
