UWP Tips & Tricks #4 – DEP0001 : Unexpected Error: A Prerequisite for an install could not be satisfied.

When trying to deploy the Universal Windows App to the Windows 10 Mobile device , there are times when you might receive the following error

Severity    Code    Description    Project    File    Line
Error        Error : DEP0001 : Unexpected Error: A Prerequisite for an install could not be satisfied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80073CFD)

If you receive this error , the solution for it is pretty simple .

Just have a look at the Package.appxmanifest file and specially the TargetDeviceFamily element.

<Dependencies>
    <TargetDeviceFamily Name="Windows.Mobile" MinVersion="10.0.0.0" MaxVersionTested="10.1.0.0" />
</Dependencies>

Just make sure that the MinVersion attribute is set with the right version (The version in the Device should be greater than or equal to the one set here).
