What happens behind an app package creation ?


  • HI,

    Can someone please explain what all happens in the background of clicking a create store app option in visual studio, especially in terms of an unit test project ?

    I understand we can replicate the same using makeappx.exe and provide all the binaries in a directory form as expected.

    When i build my unit tests, its generating a .dll version of my actual metro app. In addition, will it also use all other binaries that are consumed by my metro app (I expect it to though ) ?My assembly references to test platform tools and vstest.execution container are not copied in the build.

    Thanks !!
