Our application contains a local system service that utilizes Windows Projected File System (ProjFS). Is there any way to enable this optional windows feature during the installation?

 

Can we add a specific dependency for that? If so, how would that dependency look like?

 

Otherwise, what would be the best practice for that?

We currently don't have a way for packages to enable Windows Features during installation. I would recommend putting this in our ideas section so we can consider putting it in our backlog.
