HeidiSQL in the Windows Store

Hi There,

Now that Microsoft has GA'd their Desktop App Converter, I was wondering if there was any possibility of having HeidiSQL listed added to the Windows Store. I feel that this would be a convenient way to install the app on workstations running Windows 10.

Thanks in Advance, Adam

Oh, that sounds interesting. But I need to make myself familiar with that store stuff, as I'm more a Win7 user yet and running Android on my smartphone.

Hi Ansgar,

Scott Hanselman put together a good walkthrough example a couple of days ago at his blog

By itself, it doesn't look like it would be too hard. I have no idea how it would integrate into your build pipeline though and I'm sure you'd be looking at doing it in some automated way.

Quite good tutorial, but also quite much effort just for getting an app into the Windows store.

Hey, here's a ticket for this: https://github.com/HeidiSQL/HeidiSQL/issues/60

I already worked on that, but I'm having problems due to a hanging installer in the isolated Windows environment, as documented in the ticket. Perhaps you have some input?
