How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Severe Bug: Crash when using StoreServicesFeedbackLauncher to lauch Feedback Hub

Calling StoreServicesFeedbackLauncher.LaunchAsync() in a UWP app now causes an unhandled Win32 exception if the target platform is set to Windows 10 version 1809. See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/52769958/microsofts-feedback-hub-now-crashes-my-uwp-app for another report of this.

This means that the Feedback Hub can't be used by apps targeting Windows 10 version 1809 or later.

I have installed the Store Services SDK using the NuGet package method as described here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/uwp/monetize/microsoft-store-services-sdk#install-the-sdk.

A workaround or fix would be appreciated.

A change was made in the Windows core platform where the feedback hub with app context count not launch from a non-UI thread, sadly, the engagement SDK was not updated to support this change. We have updated the SDK to call the launch of the feedback hub from calling thread, we have tested extensively to ensure that it works in the most common scenarios and have updated the SDK (both the MSI and the NuGet) to support this change. If your application is in the Microsoft Store, the application was updated automatically to your end users.
