Open a PowerShell prompt with administrative privileges. You can do this by right-clicking the Start button, selecting "Windows PowerShell (Admin)".
Change to the directory where the package is located, for example:
Provision the app using the
Add-AppxProvisionedPackagecommand. You'll need to specify the offline Windows image you want to service, the package path. (IMPORTANT: You want to use the APPXBUNDLE, not the APPX)
Here is an example of what the command looks like:
Add-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online -SkipLicense -FolderPath .\your-package.AppxBundle
.\your-package.AppxBundlewith the path to your app package and the package file.
