  1. ModifiableWindowsApps folder nightmare help


    I installed Xbox Beta App on my D: drive while Windows 10 was installed on C:. It made like 5 folders and among them a Program Files folder containing a ModifiableWindowsApp folder. In my attempts to delete this folder I reinstalled Windows on drive C: while deleting everything else on drive D: EXCEPT this folder that wouldn't delete no matter what I did. I am facing the exact same problem now. What I tried: - anything permission related (admin, user, everyone) - safe mode cmd rmdir

    The XBOX beta app was the worst software experience of my life and whoever over there at Microsoft thought it fine to do what that app is doing is an IDIOT.

  2. Anyone else have a 'ModifiableWindowsApps' folder?

    I've just noticed a folder I've never seen before in my Program Files folder called ModifiableWindowsApps and just wanna know if anyone else has this folder.

    There is also a principal listing in its security tab for a:
    Account Unknown(S-1-15-3-1024-3635283841-2530182609-996808640-1887759898-3848208603-3313616867-983405619-2501854204)

    that I have no idea what it is suppose to mean.


    Running Windows 10 Pr0 64-bit version 1903 (18362.175)

    I too have the ModifiableWindowsApps folder, and according to the following doc, it appears it can only be used "by certain types desktop of PC games that are published by Microsoft and our partners."

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp...ckagedirectory

    "desktop6:MutablePackageDirectory"
    Specifies a folder under the %ProgramFiles%\ModifiableWindowsApps path where the contents of your desktop application's install folder are projected so that users can modify the installation files (for example, to install mods).
