Migration

Caution!Migration is not compatible with MSIX packages built for Windows versions earlier than Windows 10. For more details see this page

Automatically migrate previous user data from the desktop app upon first launch of this store version. This is Microsoft's recommendation so users can seamlessly have everything in place.

Uninstall code

This is the actual Upgrade Code of your app.

User data folder

The subfolder containing your app's user data. Based on the following examples, choose one of the default Local or LocalLow folders:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\YourApp
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\YourApp

UI level

Set the UI level to determine the migration user experience.

  • Ask user about data migration - moves the user data and uninstalls any previous versions by prompting every time.

Use the Show notification option to notify the user when the migration has completed. The notification will be shown regardless of the UI level.
