How to Install a Store App package for all users

When you install a Store app package by double-clicking on the package or by running the Add-AppxPackage cmdlet in PowerShell, the package is installed for the current user only.

This article tells you how to install or provision a Store app package for all user accounts that exist on the computer and for future user accounts.

Install a Store App package for all users

A Store app package can be an .Appx, .AppxBundle, .Msix, or an .Msixbundle file. To install an app package for all users, you can use PowerShell’s Add-ProvisionedAppPackage command or its DISM equivalent /Add-ProvisionedAppxPackage option.

Note: When installing an app package, it’s essential to install the dependency packages (if any) before installing the main package. Or, use the /DependencyPackagePath DISM command-line or the -DependencyPath PowerShell command-line switch.

Option 1: Using PowerShell

The PowerShell “Add-ProvisionedAppPackage” command-line syntax is below. You must use PowerShell (admin) to run these commands.

Add-ProvisionedAppPackage -online -PackagePath "FULL PATH OF THE APP PACKAGE" -skiplicense


Add-ProvisionedAppPackage -online -PackagePath "D:\Apps\AmazonMobileLLC.AmazonMusic_9.5.2.0_x86__kc6t79cpj4tp0.Appx" -skiplicense
Add-ProvisionedAppPackage -online -PackagePath "D:\Apps\Microsoft.MSPaint_2023.2310.24037.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe.AppxBundle" -skiplicense
Add-ProvisionedAppPackage -online -PackagePath "D:\Apps\Microsoft.DesktopAppInstaller_2024.506.2113.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe.Msixbundle" -skiplicense

If there are some dependencies, use the -DependencyPath switch.

Option 2: Using DISM

The DISM command-line syntax is below:

Dism /online /Add-ProvisionedAppxPackage /packagePath:"FULL PATH OF THE APP PACKAGE" /SkipLicense


Dism /online /Add-ProvisionedAppxPackage /packagePath:"D:\Apps\AmazonMobileLLC.AmazonMusic_9.5.2.0_x86__kc6t79cpj4tp0.Appx" /SkipLicense
Dism /online /Add-ProvisionedAppxPackage /packagePath:"D:\Apps\Microsoft.MSPaint_2023.2310.24037.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe.AppxBundle" /SkipLicense
Dism /online /Add-ProvisionedAppxPackage /packagePath:"D:\Apps\Microsoft.DesktopAppInstaller_2024.506.2113.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe.Msixbundle" /SkipLicense

If there are some dependencies, use /DependencyPackagePath to specify each dependency package needed for the app to be provisioned.

Additional Information

List all provisioned packages

To get the list of packages provisioned for all users, use the following command:

[Command Prompt or PowerShell]

Dism /online /Get-ProvisionedAppxPackages



Get-ProvisionedAppPackage -online

The above commands display information about app packages (.appx, .appxbundle, .msixbundle) that are set to install for all users and each new user.

Remove a provisioned package

To remove a provisioned package for all users, use the “/Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage” switch.

[Command Prompt or PowerShell]

Dism /online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:"FULL PATH OF THE APP PACKAGE"


Dism /online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:AmazonMobileLLC.AmazonMusic_9.5.2.0_x86__kc6t79cpj4tp0


Remove-ProvisionedAppPackage -online -PackageName "AmazonMobileLLC.AmazonMusic_9.5.2.0_x86__kc6t79cpj4tp0"

The above commands remove provisioning for the specified app package (.appx, .appxbundle, .msixbundle) for every user. Also, the App package will not be registered to new user accounts that are created.
