Why did my computer download this on its own? Do I need to worry about it? Thanks.

Hi @Richard11

Based off some research we’ve done, this file, designed by Microsoft, is designed to let developers install .appx or .appxbundle files on their Windows 10 PC and convert desktop programs to UWP apps that are suitable for the Windows Store.

We hope this helps. Please let us know if you need further assistance.


Thanks for sharing that information! It’s great to know that Microsoft has developed a file like this for Windows 10. It sounds like it allows developers to install .appx or .appxbundle files on their PCs and convert desktop programs into UWP apps that can be listed on the Windows Store. That’s pretty cool!

I appreciate your help, and if I have any more questions or need further assistance, I’ll definitely reach out. Thanks again!
