Access denied error when installing .MAUI sideload misx package
I published .NET MAUI Windows MSIX to sideload that is signed with a valid certificate. When I click .msix file, nothing happened because msix extension was not known on windows 10 by default. It seems that I have to install App Installer from Microsoft Store to recognise msix extension. After installing App Installer, I clicked on .msix file it showed me installer window, when I clicked on Install button it showed me following error: App installation failed with error message: Access is denied. (0x80070005). Why am I getting this error? Then I open power shell without elevated admin rights and run Install.ps1 script it showed me Add-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80070005, Access is denied. error. After that I run power shell with elevated admin rights, and run Install.ps1, then it installed my package. So it is installing sideload package only from powershell with admin rights. How can we make it installable by double clicking misx file without admin rights?
Please try to install other MSIX file, is that need admin right?
Do you have any policy restrictions when Install MSIX file?
You can open a thread as well in MSIX - Microsoft Tech Community.
This error is coming for all MSIX packages. There is no policy restriction.
I created a simple Hello World .NET Maui project, its source code is here https://github.com/kamranattari4192/maui.git
I published it and signed the package with valid certificate, the published package can be downloaded from https://github.com/kamranattari4192/maui/releases/download/18.104.22.168/MauiApp1_22.214.171.124_Test.zip
When I double click on MauiApp1_126.96.36.199_x86.msix file, the installer screen is shown
When I click on Install, then it shows Access denied error.
My windows version is as followings:
Edition Windows 10 Enterprise
Installed on 30/10/2021
OS build 19042.1889
