UWP is technology that is deprecated by Microsoft.

This is not something I have done myself, but these days you can package any binary to Microsoft Store.

If you instead search the forum for Microsoft Store instead you can find some topics.

Also you can search other languages forums that are in a similar spot for tips about this, e.g

No. You also have no access to its API. Which is all C++ only so you need flat C proxies. Seems like MS all but forgot about C api's and makes new OS functionality not available through public API's. Big mistake. But you can package and upload win32 applications to the MS store, including ones created with PB. UWP and its sandbox model is gone already as so many other things MS tried. WinUI3 is also dead-end imho, complicated layered ugly mess. Modern UI should be available for any programming language. And that dictates a flat C interface. Which isn't there.
