Running Windows Desktop Store App on WACK

    Question

  • We created a PowerPoint Addon for windows 8 Desktop App ( created a msi installers).

    Before submitting the application to windows store we need to test the application using Windows App Certification Kit.It always shows missing or invalid registry key,But when we check the registry keys  are created in HKLM & HKCU under Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion.

    If we check the same in Windows & OS every thing works fine.We even checked by turning off the UAC in windows 8.

    On thing we noticed is the installed_programs_ecda8648-edc7-42b6-abf6-7c417f5041e8.xml created in the appdata folder does not have the registrypath set when we run the WACK in Windows 8.

    If we check the same in Windows 7 following is what we see

    <AddRemoveProgramIndicators>
            <AddRemoveProgram DisplayName="ExportSlide" CompanyName="My Company" ProductVersion="1.0.0" Language="1033" Path="C:\Windows\System32" RegistryPath="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{49C04A49-8F81-49E0-8223-0881A4A2D1FB}" UninstallString="MsiExec.exe /I{49C04A49-8F81-49E0-8223-0881A4A2D1FB}" VersionMajor="1" VersionMinor="0" GUID="{49C04A49-8F81-49E0-8223-0881A4A2D1FB}" RNP="0x1" DNP="0x1" RegistrySubKey="{49C04A49-8F81-49E0-8223-0881A4A2D1FB}" UniqueId="0x33b7" Id="000069d6026feade75a8dd3555d2a7e18377819b49fa" />
