Method for configuring a Microsoft Store application after install.


Hi All,

Does anybody have a clever method for configuring a Microsoft Store application after installation? We’ve got a Store application that insists on adding itself as enabled to Startup apps (so it runs every time on login). I’ve figured out the registry key that needs changing to prevent that from happening, but I don’t really have a way to add it directly to the installation.
I know I could create a separate application that just sets the reg key and marks the Store application as a dependency, but I was hoping there was a more elegant way to tackle this.

    A simple remediation script could do that. It is in tune; a little PowerShell to check if the value equals x, and if not, a script remediates that value to x if it is not present or not x.

    Robbert, yeah, that’s the way I’m leaning. I hoped to include it in the installation, but the Microsoft Store options are extremely limited. I guess I can’t complain, this is the only Store app that’s behaving this way (even though their “traditional” installer does not)
