    Been asked before. Sadly I don't think it's possible which sucks ass especially if your download say Gears Ultimate Edition which is over 50gb and have to reformat etc.

    no, it is not.. I'm just trying to be more effective tho.. rather than I have to redownload those hundreds of megabyte, I'm thinking to keep it somewhere else and install it later.. (My ISP still using quota based, so I'm trying to save my quota as much as possible) :confused:

    I believe it's possible because i have the code to do this for EDGE in Toggle tweaker
    but Other apps i'm not sure
    and concerning paid apps i don't think it will stay paid because like MS_User said apps payment is cloud based

    Getting .appx/.appxbundle files is not difficult
    the issue is with getting the proper license to deploy the App
    in order to be able to do that, you must have OEM license
    when you install it from Store, the license associated is specific and tied to your hardware and account

    so, there is no point in having Appx files :D

    There is already an installer for appx packages, that present in all latest RS1 builds include 14393. It was put among other standart apps by intention.

    You forgot to quote what abbodi1406's conclusion is based on:

    i did it with project sparks, i had it downloaded on one computer,thought i'd save the time to have to download it again for another computer,so i copied the folder to the other computer went to the project sparks in store and clicked install,it downloaded something small but i didn't have to download all of it because it found it already downloaded in the folder.

    Publishers will provide downloadable appx with license files, and your point is invalid :)

    I have a tablet that comes with the mobile editions of Word Excel and Power Point. Is it possible to extract the necessary licensing information? (The apps are free.)
