Select the target platforms for the current build.

An AppInstaller is an XML file that contains information about an APPX/MSIX package. It is used by Windows to check for updates to the package and to install them automatically.


The URL path of the AppInstaller file. Only https and file:// protocols are supported.

Frequency check

Select how often will Windows check if your application has pending updates.


Allow UWP specific options

This option allows you to configure the UWP package using Advanced Installer's UI. Settings from the regular MSI-based views/pages will be transferred to the available UWP views if they are supported.

The supported settings that can be automatically transferred are:

  • Application details (Name, Description, etc.)
  • Package description (Name, Logo, Version, etc.)
  • File type associations (File type, Content type, etc.)
  • Visual elements

You can access each UWP specific view by clicking one of the Applications, Visual Assets or Declarations link buttons.

NoteIf you change settings in the UWP views, they will overwrite the settings from the MSI-based views/pages. This means that only the settings from the UWP views will be included in the final build.
