Rather than install Windows apps we have some Python code we need to install. These aren't apps but a series of scripts the customer uses to do various administrative things on their machines. Is it possible to use MSIX to simply install a list of files like the old MSI installers used to do?

@jruland Yes.  You can repackage using the MMPT and just copy as you would have.

 

Python, in general, runs fine inside of the MSIX Container.  The scripts themselves might be an issue, depending on what they are doing.

 

 

@TIMOTHY MANGAN great, thanks.
