[UWP] [Desktop Bridge] Access is denied RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have copied the files from DesktopAppConvert.zip into C:\Windows\System32.

    I also copied BaseImage-14393 there.

    First time I type desktopappconverter it prompted me for the name of the app, and so on.

    Then when I go 

    CMD PS C:\> .\DesktopAppConverter.ps1 -Setup -BaseImage .\BaseImage-14393.wim -Verbose

    I get : Access is denied.

    What am I doing wrong ?

  • Hi Mitchb00,
    I haven't reproduced your problem, but I think the issue may related to the permission.
    You can try the following steps, I have tested it, it works well.
    1.Opening Windows PowerShell in the way of running as administrator
    2.Inputing the command:  CMD PS C:\Set-ExecutionPolicy bypass.
    3.Copying DesktopAppConverter & BaseImage-14393.wim to a local folder(for example, the folder path is C:\Users\XXX\DesktopAppConverter)
    4.Inputing the following command:
       cd  C:\Users\XXX\DesktopAppConverter
       .\DesktopAppConverter.ps1 -Setup -BaseImage .\BaseImage-14393.wim -Verbose
    By the way I don't think you need to copy DesktopAppConverter & BaseImage-14393.wim to C:\Windows\System32 because it is a system folder, it should not be changed manually.

    Best Regards!
