[Win10] Run Windows Store Apps


Recommended Posts

Good Day!


As the title suggests I am trying to run a Windows Store App with SciTE Lite on Windows 10.

There is no executable binary to use the Run Function with.

You can now use for example "ms-windows-store:" from the Windows "Run" prompt or "start ms-windows-store:" from a Command Line.

But how do I do that from within a SciTE Script?

"Run('start ms-windows-store:')" or "Run('mswindows-store:')" does not work!


Thank you very much!

I see you did not read those rules to which I linked very carefully - you missed the part that says:

"Do not repost the same question if the previous thread has been locked - particularly if you merely reword the question to get around one of the prohibitions listed above"

However, as this question does have some wider application (pun intended) I am prepared to let it run this time. But please do read those rules carefully and stick to them in future.

Thank you very much!

It works for my application!

Run(@ComSpec & ' /c start "" "shell:Appsfolder\Microsoft.Messaging_8wekyb3d8bbwe!x27e26f40ye031y48a6yb130yd1f20388991ax"', '', @SW_HIDE)

- Hit Win-R to open a "Run" input, and type "shell:Appsfolder"


- When in that, hit F-10 to get a menu bar, and from that menu bar select "View / Choose Details"

- Select the radio box for "AppUserModelID". That ID is what you are going to want to execute.


- Select "Details" from the little "View" gadget" on the right hand side.


"shell:Appsfolder\"+AppUserModelID found in the right column
