The packaging tool appears to loose command line arguments.  This is likely a flaw in the underlying manifest XML schema.

 

I know that AppX shortcuts have this limitation, but MSIX needs to have a way to support command line arguments.

 

This issue is related to the next one :

Tool will add support for this as soon as the platform work is complete.

 

Thank you for your feedback!

Yes. Definitely needs some sort of automation support .. after all, probably only a matter of time before Chocolatey gets support for installing these, and that beautiful framework relies on command line arguments all the way.
