    How to Extract old UWP app to deploy on another PC (UWP Not in store)


    I have an excellent UWP app that I use to control my Squeezeboxes (Soundicity) which is sadly no longer available in the windows store.

    I`d like to deploy this app to another machine I have on my network.

    Is it possible to extract the relevant files from one PC, in order to deploy Soundicity to another machine?

    Have you checked in the library in the store app, to see if it shows up there?
    I ask because all apps I ever had on Windows 8 and Windows 10 show up there for me(I always use the same Microsoft account for all my Windows systems).
    Maybe if you are lucky, it doesn't show in the store, but they still have it, for someone, like in your predicament.

    Thanks, yes it is in the Library - didn't think of looking in there.

    Is there any method that you know of to extract the files and back them up locally, just in case?
