We are pleased to announce that MSIX Core is now available for download.


MSIX Core is to enable an enterprise to standardize on the MSIX packaging format for their applications. IT Pros can easily deploy the MSIX Core installer to their devices and enable install, query, and removal of MSIX packaged apps (that already work on those Windows versions), and provide as clean of an uninstall as possible.


MSIX Core provides a subset of features of native MSIX, functioning similar to existing Win32 installer types. MSIX Core does not provide the container benefits of native MSIX, nor enable an app that uses Windows 10 specific features to work on previous Windows versions.
