App doesn't show logo, failed to create windows.ui.xaml.media.imagesource from the text '\Assets\logo.png' 
Which is weird, because the xaml seems to be fine

Thanks for reaching out to us. In this case, your image URI uses backslashes (the '\' character). In XAML, that acts as an escape character to modify how other characters are interpreted. Change your XAML to use a forward slash (the '/' character) and it should work.

Hope that helps!
