Our application relies on an optional windows feature, in our case Projected File System (Client-ProjFS).

It would be great if we could specify those as dependencies in the installer and have the installer enable them.

Working around that is very cumbersome at the moment. We couldn't get custom install actions to work as those only seem to be supported for games.

This feature would also be very useful for me, as I have several packages that depend on MSMQ and without the LaunchConditions that MSI has (We build our MSI packages using Wix) we have to just hope that the User has read the installation guide (they never do btw) before installing the MSIX package versions of our current MSI packages.

 

This would greatly increase the number of packages that we can move from MSI to MSIX.
