winget to install Microsoft store apps?

Post by yajoman » Mon Oct 19, 2020 9:48 am

I'm looking forward to be able to use some app that is only available in the Microsoft Store.

That's a problem. I only managed to do it with a VM.

Today I saw this: https://github.com/microsoft/winget-cli

Would it be possible to use winget under wine to download and install apps from Microsoft store somehow? Are there any plans to fix this situation?

Thanks!

That is a good question, i want to know that too.

In theory we "just" need the working MS Store App, and a Microsoft Account

I managed to install Win10 in a VirtualBOX without activating (will work for 10 days IIRC), using a new free MS account, installed the free Minecraft test version from the Store, it worked, but it's slow.

Maybe we can "extract" the Store from a Win10 somehow? :-)
