Parent Elements

Parent ElementDescription
Package

Defines the root element of an app package manifest. The manifest describes the structure and capabilities of the software to the system.

 

Remarks

If you do not explicitly declare the capabilities required for your app to access user resources, your app cannot access that resource. However, even if you declare a capability, your app still won't have access to the user resource if it does not exist on the system or there are other security policies in place that limit access to the resource.

Examples

Here's an example Capabilities node that declares 3 capabilities.


<Capabilities>
  <Capability Name="internetClient"/>
  <Capability Name="musicLibrary"/>
  <Capability Name="videosLibrary"/>
</Capabilities>
