Hi @Alex1475,

 

You can update using the App Installer file from the web, a network share or local file share, the app installer file downloads and updates supports http/s and smb.

 

You can find more information here: 

 

App Installer file overview - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/msix/app-installer/app-installer-file-overview

Installing from the web - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/msix/app-installer/installing-windows10-apps-web

Setting updates with the app installer file - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/msix/app-installer/update-settings

 

I hope this helps.

 

Cheers,

Hello @Tanaka_Jimha,

 

I saw that you didnt include https so was wondering if https is really not supported?
