Hi,

 

I'm wondering if there is a file size limit for the MSIX app package?

 

We did some tests and it looks like we are limited by a maximum of 2GB.

 

Thanks

 

Adel.

I have made packages with 7gb files (pre-compression) without issue, so I don't understand how you hit that limit (MSI was limited to 2GB I believe).

Microsoft would need to provide an actual number, but it should be on the scale of that supported by 64-bit zip compression (which is a large value).
Thank you for your response! I'll check again.
We have had games shipping in the Microsoft Store in excess of 100 GB using the MSIX file format.

Thanks for the info, John!
