Does remapping functionalities in a mouse tool violated the Windows Store policies

Hello,
i've programmed a mouse tool with that i can remap my mouse keys. Is that allowed for a Windows Store app?

(I'm not sure if I understand everything correctly in the policies and before I waste my time I'd rather ask)

Hello,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

Is that allowed for a Windows Store app?

There are no other Store policies that mention remapping mouse keys. But aased on Store policy 10.2.8, you must obtain user consent to change any user’s Windows settings, preferences, settings UI, or modify the user’s Windows experience in any way. So please make sure you've gotten user consent before the app uses its function.

Thank you.

Hi,
Do you think it would be allowed that my application contains 2 applications and is it even possible how i imagine?

It's only a consideration. I have an WinApi application which consumes maybe 20 MB. I'm trying to develop a further application as an editor for the settings and for saving it to XML. I could communicate by SendMessage/ PostMessage from the editor to the WinApi app to reload the settings after saving. It would be great to add the editor as a separate application (.exe?!) for less memory usage.

(At the moment i'm struggling with WinUI https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/859112/winui-window-doesn39t-resize-if-moving-to-other-mo.html
and consider to use React Native for the editor.)

Regards
