Brian Lich|Last Updated: 5/19/2017

SYNOPSIS

Gets an app package installation log.

SYNTAX

All (Default)

Get-AppxLog [-All] [<CommonParameters>]

ActivityId

Get-AppxLog [-ActivityId <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-AppxLog cmdlet gets the app package installation log created during the deployment of an app package. An app package has an .appx file name extension. The log contains errors, warnings, and additional information about the processes initiated by cmdlets in the Appx Windows PowerShell® module.

When Add-AppxPackage or Remove-AppxPackage report a failure, they return the ActivityID to use with Get-AppxLog.

For more information about common error codes, see Troubleshooting packaging, deployment, and query of Windows Store apps.
