Put .mdb files in the documents folder of the target pc.

Fri Apr 30, 2021 3:13 pm

Hi, I distribute software that I would like to upload to the windows store. I am creating an msix package I have three myprog.exe mydb files. mdb myimg.jpg myprog must find the software in a folder. I chose documents when with Advanced Installer I put in document under userprofile after installing I cannot find the mydb.mdb file in the documents folder. How can I fix since the windowsapp folder is inaccessible?

Hello and welcome to our forums,

All MSIX packages have a predefined install location where the OS extracts the resources, the location being:

%programfiles%\WindowsApps

As you have mentioned, this is a system location that, by default, is inaccessible from Windows Explorer.

For more information about this, please have a look over the following:

MSIX - Install Location

Even though the files are installed in %programfiles%, the MSIX is actually installed per-user, not per-machine.

For more information about this, please have a look over the following article:

AppData Management in MSI/MSIX/APPV

Hope this will help shed some light over this topic.

Best regards,
