Windows Store Application SID and uniqueness (ms-app://)


  • Every windows store app gets a unique SID assigned by system locally. We can get it by calling GetCurrentApplicationCallbackUri method of WAB APIs.

    When we register windows 8 store app at windows dev store, it also gives a unique SID for our app.

    Now when an end user downloads my app from windows store and runs it, does my app ends up with two SIDs (one assigned by local system and one that I got from dev centre)? If it ends up with one SID is it the dev centre provided sid that it gets?
