 After converting an application into MSIX format when we launch the shortcut ""we get the below error :

This gets resolved if we keep certain files locally under c:\programdata\adobe\SLstore and under c:\program files(x86\common files\adobe\SLcache.

However, if we keep the files in the MSIX container it does not work. We have also tried using PSF framework and file redirection but nothing seems to be working. Can some one please help us in resolving this issue on how we can make it work.

Hi @Sidharth2490 

 

This is a common challengee for many applications. It happens because an MSIX package can only install files inside the ProgramFiles\WindowsApps folder and because the app does not know to copy those files from the install location into the required/additional folders the first time it is launched.

 

This limitation can be fixed using the package support framework. I gave a talk last month, and also wrote this article, where I explain how you can do it with the MSIX Packaging Tool or with Advanced Installer (which eve you prefer).

Long story short, for applications where you don't have access to the source code and where the application does not know to copy those files at first-launch you will need to use the package support framework to fix them. Or you can create an additional task/script in SCCM to copy those additional files on the machine before the MSIX is installed. (this works only if you have complete control over the deployment of your MSIX package)
