Subject: [wix-users] is a bundle of appx an appxbundle ?


We use a bundle.wxs that chains msi-files and we create a bootstrapper and that installs a desktop application.

Now we want to bring our desktop application to the store.

As far as I know, we have to convert to a UWP-app. (using the desktop-bridge)

But I also read that if we create appx, we do not have to convert.

So, can I make appx out of our msi-files and chain them in a appxbundle to get a setup that I can submit to the store ?

I read since quiet a time about taking 'old' desktop-applications to the store; for any further reading-links I would be happy.
