MSIX appPrinter-Extension not working on MS-Server

Copper Contributor

I created an MSIX-App which uses the appPrinter Extension (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/desktop/modernize/desktop-to-uwp-extensions#make-your...), meaning a printer is registered after installation and visible in the printer list.

As soon as a document is printed over the created printer, the application opens.

 

Works fine on Win10 and Win11. I now tried to install the MSIX-Package via the cmdlet (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/appx/add-appxpackage?view=windowsserver2022-ps) on MS-Server2022.

The application is installed correctly and visible, unfortunately the printer is **not ** visible.

Any solutions, or is there a reason why the printer is not visible?

Best regards
