Problem Description
When exporting any game with 8-direction for movement to UWP, inputs from the keyboard are dropped randomly. Touch and Gamepad control both work fine, but 8-direction keyboard input drops. The controls are fine before exporting to VS2015.

Attach a Capx

Description of Capx
The Platformer template is just a test capx with a blue box character jumping across static and moving platforms.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • Export the capx to Windows Store, targeting Windows 10 Universal (VS2015).
  • In VS2015, change the properties in your game to target W10 10.0.14393 or higher so you can export/test properly.
  • Run the game to playtest in Windows 10.

Observed Result
Keyboard inputs are dropped, making the game unplayable.

Expected Result
The controls to work perfectly fine.

This sounds like previously reported Edge bugs: (Edge runs UWP exports)
If it's one of those issues then Microsoft need to fix it. Otherwise you should probably file a new issue on their tracker.
