Date Wed, 23 Mar 2016 17:52:25 GMT


Vladimir Kotikov commented on CB-10845:

[~tss], are you still experiencing the issue? Could you please specify environment you're
using - is that a Cordova CLI project or VS project, created with Tools for Apache Cordova?

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Plugin Geolocation, Windows
>         Environment: Windows Phone 8.1

> After updating to the latest Cordova versions (cordova-cli 6.0.0, cordova-windows 4.3.1,
cordova-plugin-geolocation 2.1.0), the location capability is missing from the appxmanifest
> In the platforms/windows folder, the file "" contains the
following region:
> <Capabilities>
>   <Capability Name="internetClient" />
>   <DeviceCapability Name="location" />
> </Capabilities>
> The file "", which seems to be relevant when building for the
ARM platform, is missing the location entry:
> <Capabilities>
>   <Capability Name="internetClientServer" />
> </Capabilities>
> I don't know whether this is a bug in the geolocation plugin (which should add the permission)
or in the windows platform. I was able to fix the problem for me by extending the plugin.xml
of the geolocation plugin and adding:
> <config-file target="" parent="/Package/Capabilities">
>     <DeviceCapability Name="location" />
> </config-file>
> This seems to be a bug because the existing extra with target="package.appxmanifest"
works for the file but not for
> Edit: The build target was "Windows Phone (Universal)" from Visual Studio 2015, which
results in creating an app package with the following name: "CordovaApp.Phone_<version>_arm.appxupload
