MSIX

Full Functional
The software was packaged on Windows 10 21H2 using Microsoft MSIX Packaging Tool 1.2022.512 and likely requires no special treatment. The MMPT will, by default, ignore the duplicate desktop shortcuts. It will also, by default, ignore the shortcut to the program installation folder. This is probably desirable. If the latter is reqired, PsfLauncher will be needed.
