Remarks

Extensibility points are a mechanism by which a package can add functionality in a manner defined by the operating system. An extensibility point is a location where an app can register to execute code or use resources of the current package. To add functionality for a particular app, use the Application child element of the Applications element.

These extensibility points can't be declared multiple times in a manifest:

  • windows.certificates
  • windows.gameExplorer
