Website links to the Windows Store RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently in the process of creating a promotional web page for an app that I've published in the Windows Store. I've been following the guidance on Creating links with the Windows Store protocol but I'm not having much luck.

    While the uri I've constructed "ms-windows-store:PDP?PFN=CompiledExperience.HubBug_fahbwp72s5828" works well when used through the "Launcher.LaunchUriAsync" but in when used in a web page I'm seeing mixed results.

    In Internet Explorer the link works correctly, but not in Chrome. Looking into the settings it appears the protocol "ms-windows-store" isn't registered as a normal protocol, nor the Windows Store as an app that's the default app for that protocol. It appears that it's "special" inside Windows Apps and Internet Explorer, but nowhere else.

    Is there any way to have these links work in non Internet Explorer browsers?
