    Permissions on windows store app executables How do I get th lock off


    I just made my first ever purchase from the windows store, a game called "Recore".

    I use a Razer Tartarus gamepad and I want to link the games executable to the keymap I made for it. I do this for every single program I make a keymap for, I have more keymaps then I can count.

    Well, I took ownership of the windowsapps folder so I could look inside and find "recore.exe. I click on it and it says I don't have permission to open it.

    I've tried every trick I know and I can't get access to this damn file. I don't want to modify it, I just want my gamepad to link my keymap to it,

    I didn't realize the files are encrypted. That's what the gold lock is on the file icons.

    I'm trying a different approach. The Synapse software stores key maps in xml files. I can just directly edit the xml file but I need the UUID. I don't know how to find out what it is.

    Here's an example

    Code:
        <Application>
            <UUID>535BDE4B-849B-43CA-9DCB-4156E079DA6F</UUID>
            <AppName>alan_wakes_american_nightmare.exe</AppName>
            <AppPath>D:\Steam\steamapps\common\alan wakes american nightmare\alan_wakes_american_nightmare.exe</AppPath>
            <BundleID />
        </Application>
        <Autoswitch>1</Autoswitch>
        <ProfileName>Alan Wake (AN)</ProfileName>
        <Active>0</Active>
    </Profile>
    That's obviously for Alan Wakes American Nightmare. How the UUID is generated I do not know.

    I see. To prevent pirating. One would need the key to decrypt it. That's a bummer.
