Many developers have recently reported seeing the following error message when trying to compile their UWP projects: 1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Professional\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v16.0\AppxPackage\Microsoft.AppXPackage.Targets(821,5): error : Certificate does not match supplied signing thumbprint: 5969de9ae710abeaf66c5d5182ee776c83689dbce The problem with the inability to compile the project is due to a mismatch between the real thumbprint of the certificate (.pfx) and the corresponding value stored in the project file (.csproj, .vbproj or .vcxproj).
