MSIX packaging RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been reading up on MSIX packaging for UWP apps. Is it possible to pack a Windows NT service as part of an MSIX package for UWP app?

  • Hi,

    So you are trying to convert a desktop app to UWP app, right? From this document, Prepare to package a desktop application, if you have a windows service in your app, you should use a background task instead of it. So it might be better for you to change it before you put the app into the MSIX tool.

    Best regards,
