[UWP] AppUriHandler and Apps for websites fail with sideloading unless in Developer Mode
I've tried to implement https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/launch-resume/web-to-app-linking and test a sideload build but while the entries are appearing in Settings -> Apps -> Apps for websites, the interception of the URIs doesn't work and my app doesn't open unless Developer Mode is on. Will these work under sideload without Developer Mode when the app is published to the store (which requires the windows-app-web-link file to be deployed)? I tried the links twitter.com entries that were built into windows, but they also didn't work unless developer mode is on.
@Luke Nuttall Could you please tell me the OS version of your device?
I've tried in on 20H2 (my machines) and 1909. The 1909 machine was set to side load, but win + r, then the uri didn't open the app until Developer Mode was turned on.
It also didn't work until developer mode was on in 20H2
@Luke Nuttall I really appreciate you taking the time to share your question. We have reported the problem to the team.
Is there an issue/ticket I can follow somewhere?
@Luke Nuttall As what I said in the last comment, we have reported the issue to the team. there may be a delay before the new progress. Thank you for your patience.
@Luke Nuttall Could you please tell me if you have associated your app and website with a JSON file (see documentation) ? If you have associated your app and website with a JSON file, do you see any 404 http error in the website log file when the Launcher tries to fetch the json file (windows-app-web-link) ?
@Luke Nuttall Has your problem been resolved?
