Create MSIX package for WPF app contains service

Occasional Visitor

Hello, 

I try using microsoft visual studio 2019 to create MSIX package for WPF application. The app contains a service, which I would to pack with my WPF app. I tried to declare my service in Package.appxmanifest as app service but it did not work, I also did not find a Documentation describes how to do it. 

The service is a windows service created with microsoft visual studio 2019. I tested the service and installed it and it worked seamlessly.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
