  6. Select the app name for your package from the list of apps currently registered to your account, or reserve a new name in the Partner Center.
  7. In the Select and Configure Packages dialog, select the architectures you want to target based on the devices you want to deploy your application to.
  8. In the Generate app bundle listbox, select Always.
  9. Click Create to generate the app package.

Your app is now successfully packaged.

  1. Open the folder which contains your package.
  2. Right-click on the Add-AppxPackage <yourappx>.appx file. Choose Run with PowerShell and follow the prompts.
