Hi,

 

Where I can get the details about the MSIXVC container, and tools/SDK to create the MSIXVC container.

 

What is the difference between MSIX and MSIXVC container

Thanks,

Banna

Hi @Banna1015 

 

We have a short description of MSIX Container here - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/msix/msix-container note we will be updating this information with more details 

 

To learn more about SDK - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/msix/msix-sdk/sdk-overview it has the link to our GitHub repository as well. 

Hi @Dian Hartono 

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Actually, I know about MSIX and its SDK.

I want to know about MSIXVC container and how it different from MSIX container. 

 

Some of the package extensions are available only for MSIXVC container.  For information  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/schemas/appxpackage/uapmanifestschema/element-desktop6-installa...

 

So, can you provide information about MSIXVC container, such as difference between MSIX, and how to create it, and if any SDK for it.

 

Thanks,

Banna. 

Cool! Thanks for the clarification @Banna1015 

MSIXVC is an extension of MSIX that is specifically designed for games that are published through PC GamePass; it is not used for non-game scenarios.
