The Microsoft MSIX Packaging Tool:

  • Does not detect firewall rules added by the installer and add them as Desktop2 manifest entries.
  • Does not capture HKLM\Software\Services\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess registry entries even though this key is not included in the registry filter list of the tool.

 

The former keeps the package as incomplete, but the latter keeps other tools from remediating the problem.
