I package up Fiddler in MSIX, and as part of that create a shortcut to Iexplore.exe so that I have a way to launch IE in the container with the IE plugin.

 

Upon installing the package, I get both the normal fiddler exe shortcut and a second IE shortcut.  The fiddler shortcut is fine, however clicking on the IE shortcut causes nothing to happen.

 

I'm attaching the package.

Hi, 

 

Thank you for your post. I unpacked the packages your provided and looked in the manifest. I noticed that for the IE shortcut it points to this: 

<Application EntryPoint="Windows.FullTrustApplication" Executable="VFS\ProgramFilesX86\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" Id="IEXPLORE"> 

When I looked at the VFS\ProgramFileX86 I did not see a folder "Internet Explorer". This is why it is doing nothing. Was this packaged using our packing tool? If so, please file feedback so we can take a look at what is going on. 

 

Thanks again!
