MSIX

Full Functional
The software was packaged on Windows 10 21H2 using Microsoft MSIX Packaging Tool 1.2022.330 with or without PSF. The app appears to work without the PSF. For good meansure, using the PSF with FRF would be recommended as we suspect some files might get updated in production use.

App-V

Full Functional
Leaving the AppData/Local exclusion is recommended. Otherwise clean out the DirectX3d files if captured. Allow VFS Write is recommended.
