Package App for Windows App Store RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have used a Visual Basic Win Form App template to create an app for the English Sport of Cricket. Cricket is a bat and ball sport, same concept as Baseball. I can easily publish the apps (Build>Publish) this creates the following items.

    1. Folder called Application Files
    2. HSA T20.application
    3. setup.exe

    When I put the above items into a folder and copy and install them to another device running either windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 the apps run and perform fine.

    These apps are complex with over 20000 lines of code yes 20000 lines of code, understandably I seriously do not want to rewrite these apps in the form of a visual studio windows store apps template. Want I need to know is how to package the above items or a folder containing them and then submit the apps to the Windows App Store.

  • you can't simple just package it.

    Maybe this will help: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/05/06/windows_10_project_centennial/ then announced it in 2015 but no public version of it yet. hope to hear more next week with build conference
