    Question about using Add-AppxPackage install default Windows app


    I have a question about using App-AppxPackage to install default Windows app.

    Using Windows Calculator as a example, I noticed C:\Program Files\WindowsApps consists of the following:

    Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1506.19010.0_neutral_split.scale-125_8wekyb3d8bbwe
    Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1510.9020.0_neutral_split.language-zh-hans_8wekyb3d8bbwe
    Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1510.9020.0_neutral_split.language-zh-hant_8wekyb3d8bbwe
    Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1510.9020.0_neutral_split.scale-100_8wekyb3d8bbwe
    Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1510.9020.0_neutral_split.scale-125_8wekyb3d8bbwe
    Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1510.9020.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_2015.1009.20.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe

    Do I just need to do:
    Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1510.9020
    .0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode

    and will this cover all 7 items above or do I need to do it once for each of the 7 items?

    From my understanding of trying to get the calculator back after sysprep, The one you need to register is "Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1510.9020.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe" Although I still have not been able to make the calculator work. Maybe the other folders are dependencies for making the x64 to work.

    I got all of them to work after installing all the them but I only did it on the main package, didn't do it on the other 6.
