The past few days I have been trying to get our desktop application packaged into an appx package for windows store. Previously we developed a mostly manual process using microsofts desktop app converter. But we prefer to automate the whole procedure as much as possible.

Unfortunatle I only got as far as to create an appx packaga that successfully installs on windows 10 (via sideloading), but the application crashed at startup with an access violation exception. A coleague of mine reported simmilar issues with their application too.

Can anyone who has successfuly used InstallShield to convert a regular setup into an appx package give some ideas what we could try to get it working?
