How to start an MSIX application with arguments without using PSF!

Copper Contributor

After coming across the AppxManifest.xml setting desktop:ExecutionAlias ​​it seems that this also enables the use of arguments.

e.g. vlc.exe C:\Temp\PsfTooling.mp4

also vlc C:\Temp\ PsfTooling.mp4works.mp4

The AppxManifest.xml setting desktop:ExecutionAlias ​​works on Win10 and newer OS including Server 2022.

Vcl AppxManifest.xml  sample
