ElementDescription

Relationships

The Relationships element specifies data that is used to track a device metadata package within the device metadata cache.

XSD

<xs:element name="LanguageNeutralIdentifier" type="tns:GUIDType" minOccurs="0" />

Remarks

The LanguageNeutralIdentifier element lets the same GUID to be used in one or more localized versions of a device metadata package for the same device.

For example, If you release a device for three locales (such as EN-US, JA-JP, and AR-SA), you create separate metadata packages for the device for each locale. By using a common GUID for the LanguageNeutralIdentifier elements in these packages, you can easily search for the device's metadata package by browsing its PackageInfo XML document.

Note  This element is not used by any component of the operating system. It is reserved for use by the OEM, independent hardware vendor (IHV) and independent software vendor (ISV).

The LanguageNeutralIdentifier element is optional.
