MSI, EXE Installers and UWP App Packages from One Project

Today’s sophisticated user seeks simplicity: clean installs, efficient uninstalls and easier upgrades—all achievable when leveraging emerging technologies such as Microsoft’s Desktop Bridge (formerly known as “Project Centennial”) and Universal Windows Platform (UWP).
