  • Hi Tek-Data,

    >>so how i submit my exe file in windows store.....

    You can upload .xap, .appx, .appxupload, and/or .appxbundle files to the app store. .exe or .msi is a desktop app you need to create a UWP app and try to migrate the functionality of the desktop app to UWP app (Note that all desktop api are not available in UWP apps and there might be some limitations in the UWP app because of sandbox nature.)
