I have been all over the other threads about this question but nothing seems to fix my problem. No matter what I do, my .appinstaller doesn't work. I keep getting : Error in parsing the app package.
First off let me say I can access both the .appinstaller file and the .appxbundle file using the direct URLs. Also, I am able to install using .appxbundle and I have a signed certificate. I also tried doing the loopback exemption but that didnt work either. Here is the XML to my .appinstaller
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <AppInstaller Uri="http://dev.xxxxxx.com/MSIXPrototype/HelloWorldPackage.appinstaller" Version="188.8.131.52" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/appx/appinstaller/2017/2"> <MainBundle Name="xxxx" Version="184.108.40.206" Publisher="CN=my_cert" Uri="http://dev.xxxxxx.com/MSIXPrototype/HelloWorldPackage_220.127.116.11_x64.appxbundle" /> <UpdateSettings> <OnLaunch HoursBetweenUpdateChecks="0" /> </UpdateSettings> </AppInstaller>
In addition, I have added all the MIME types to my apache httpd.conf file as such :
AddType application/appinstaller .appinstaller AddType application/msixbundle .msixbundle AddType application/appxbundle .appxbundle AddType application/msix .msix AddType application/appx .appx
I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks!
