);

Parameters

Type: IAppxManifestReader**

The manifest reader.

Return codeDescription
APPX_E_INVALID_MANIFEST

The inputStream does not contain syntactically valid XML for the manifest.

 

Remarks

Use CreateManifestReader to read a manifest outside of an app package. This method validates the manifest XML. The manifestReader provides access to all data elements and attributes in the manifest XML. The manifest logs the location of manifest validation errors in the ETW event log for AppxPackaging.
