Firm gets to the bottom of the download issue that left users and developers in limbo.
Earlier this week Microsoft was forced to suspend its Windows Phone Marketplace due to an issue with digital security certificates.
The problem meant that a great number of Windows Phone 7.5 users were unable to download apps to handsets, while developers were unable to load new applications.
That problem has now been resolved, and (almost) normal service has resumed
The Windows Phone Developer Blog said: "We fixed the digital certificate problem and last evening resumed publishing new apps. It will take a day or two for the repair to fully deploy and newly-published apps to begin appearing in Marketplace again.
"If your app was in the process of being published, you don’t need to take any action. We have applied the fix and the app will continue through the certification and publishing workflow as normal."
