Short answer, the MSIX technology does not support that.

Long answer, if you are using any type of deployment technology, then you can use that to pre-install the certificate into the store (to be clear it must go to the system certificate store and not the user certificate store) prior to the app. In many deployment technologies they have some sort of "dependency" you can use. Deployment using Group Policy is also possible.
