[UWP] Windows store "Approximate size" incredibly inflated

    Question

  • Hi, Windows Store shows approximate size of 17.6 MB for our app BasicNote, but it seemed to only download just over 7 MB.  Why is this value so inflated?  And how did our app and assets reach even 7 MB in size?  It's a lightweight application, that references publicly-available assemblies.  This is concerning, because I can imagine users forming a negative opinion about such an overweight app.  It may appear clunky or poorly developed.  Just for reference, the .exe for our app is 8kb, and our assets are 140kb total.
