How to properly create a Framework SDK MSIX package

New Contributor

I'm in the process of creating MSIX distributable packages for our software project. I need to split it into multiple packages since it composes of a framework, the application using the framework and the framework SDK for others to use later on.

 

I've created the framework package and the application package depending on it. This seems to work properly.

 

My problem now is how to I properly create a framework SDK package? If I put all the header files and libraries under VFS/ProgramFilesX64/... then the files are hidden under WindowsApps and are only visible to packages depending on it.

 

So my question is mostly about how I need to layout the package content to have a framework SDK which is usable.
