WinDBG preview is out of preview. Who likes to care about updating the Microsoft Store?

Not applicable

Dear Microsoft team, 

I guess this is not exactly in the scope of Windows Server Insiders team, but I am happy if you can pass it on internally.


Microsoft once made WinDBG available as Windows Store app in Preview.
There is a huge advantage in this method, including fetching symbols automatically etc.

I had to download this mighty tool today to debug a crashdumps for Windows Server.

I wondered why it is still in preview. Opening the app it greeted me that it's out of preview now. Linking to Install WinDbg - Windows drivers | Microsoft Learn
providing an appx package. 

For better UX, I would propose to replace the preview app in Windows Store with the release version instead of breaking the idea.

I hope you understand my concerns.
