GeneralWindows app store: when you update an app Pin
raddevus2-Oct-23 3:06

I updated C'YaPass in the Windows app store.
You can see it in the app store[^]. Its 100% FREE & open source.
User Experience
Anyways, everything went well with the update so I went to update it on my Win10 computer so I could get the user experience and see how it all worked.

When I visited the app store and looked at the app, it didn't say anything about there being an update.
I was confused -- it had been more than 24 hours after my windows app store dev account said it would be available.

Reboot - Nothing
I rebooted and visited the store again. Again, nothing. It showed that I owned the app but nothing about updates. I started the app from the app store to see if it would trigger anything. It started the older installed version (1.4.7)

I didn't notice anything. Then I decided to shut down the computer and check again later.

WinGet COM Server
When I attempted to shut down the computer, I was notified that some process was running and asked if I'd like to kill it.

I canceled the shutdown and looked in Task Manager and I saw this (snapshot)[^].

WinCOMServer => WindowsPackageManagerServer.exe... and that thing is eating up some process. Wow!
I decided to wait until that service completed.

Yep, after that cryptic service completed then the App Store (which I had closed previously) now had an [Install] button -- but not an [Update] button like it should. Oy!

I ran the install and the latest version 1.4.8 was installed as expected.
So, that is the user experience... Hmmm | :|
