Packaging USB drivers as MSIX

Copper Contributor

Hi everyone,

I have a msix packaged application which we are distributing using appinstaller. The application interacts with other hardware peripherals which requires USB drivers to be installed and Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable packages for Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022.

Traditionally we have asked the end users to install the USB drivers (installer exe) manually. However, we are looking for a more seamless experience where we can package the drivers into a msix package which can be delivered with our appinstaller. 

I have read that MSIX does not support the installation of USB drivers, however I am wondering if anyone had a similar use case and had a workaround for this?

So far I have tried packaging the installer using MSIX packaging tool, however that did not work.
