Windows Package Manager 1.3.1611-preview


Recommended Posts

This is the fourth development build after the Windows Package Manager 1.2 build for Windows 10 (1809+) and Windows 11.

Experimental features are enabled in this release.

Support for installation of portable/standalone apps is now a stable feature in this preview.

Note: The Windows Package Manager Community Repository does not accept portable applications. They will not be accepted until after 1.3 is Generally Available and has been rolled out to the majority of Windows systems via the automatic upgrade from the Microsoft Store. Users may test with local manifests. You may need to manually clean up Windows Apps & Features if you install on the main OS rather than a Windows Sandbox.
