Customizing Your App Installer
Installers used to be uniform, identical for all apps. Following your feedback, we’re unlocking them for your design and personalization. Each app can now get its own welcome and “installation summary” screens, so that your installation experience is in tune and feels like a part of your app.
This feature is a step in our quest to give you the best solutions for engaging with gamers. You can even create your own tray icon with the new windows.os API!
We're planning to expand on this functionality, and enable full installer customization including texts and custom visuals! We expect this next level of customization to become available in the upcoming months. Stay tuned for updates here and through newsletters!
For those who want to start planning your custom installer, see the image below - the parts marked in red are the ones you will be able to change. Think about using the space to showcase features, present your team or partners, or announce activities your users should know about - these messages will be under your control to be changed on the fly.
We hope this excites you as it does us, and cannot wait to see the awesome designs you'll come up with!
