The software was packaged on Windows 10 21H2 using Microsoft MSIX Packaging Tool 1.2022.512 and TMEditX was used. The MMPT will, by default, ignore the shortcut to the help file. TMEditX will restore this using PsfLauncher. There are user customizations for things like colors. These are ini and xml files in the program folder area. The PSF FRF was added. Missing ExecutionAlias entries were added to the manifest.
