# Where to enter specific installation commands in VS Windows Application Packaging Project?

0

I added a Windows Application Packaging Project to my Windows desktop solution in Visual Studio 2019. I was able to edit the appxmanifest file, setting the Identity, Properties, Dependencies, Resources, etc. to values appropriate for submitting an msix package to Microsoft Store. My question is, how can I set up the setup? I have an exe file and a dll file to go into C:\Program Files (virtualized to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps), and a file to be installed as C:\ProgramData\MyApp\UsersGuide.chm. Where and how is that information inputted in the Package project?
