I have created an msix package file and installed an application successfully from msix.
Then I have changed the .exe file within the package content of the msix file. Now while trying to reinstall the application from modified msix, it is showing error - “Error in parsing the app package”.

Although the new exe is of the same application, it should not show this error. Kindly elaborate why the error is showing and how to get rid off it while replacing a new exe in package content.

Can you file a feedback item and attach the MSIX package?  Please reply to me with the feedback item number and we can look at it.

 

John.

Hey John, thanks for your response.
Kindly unzip the attached file to get the MSIX package and help me figuring out the cause of error.
