RoamingState Appdata

Sat Dec 04, 2021 5:45 pm

Hello, I work on a packaged WinUI3 app and have been tasked with building an installer. Our app reads from and writes to roaming state

An example of roaming state is C:\Users\Rarisma\AppData\Local\Packages\3234e32c-9ca1-4ad4-99bc-6583d2362437_gfyffx6rqg92w\RoamingState\StoryBuilder

With an MSIX project am I right in thinking that I cannot place files outside of installation directory, if im wrong can someone show me an example how to or link me some documentation. I am right what are my options?

Many thanks
