System requirements

Admin rights?
This app generally does not require administrative permissions and can be installed and started by a normal user. Certain functions (for example installation or uninstallation per-machine) may require local admin permissions though. If this is the case MSIX Hero shows UAC prompt as soon as it needs admin rights. If you start MSIX Hero as administrator, no additional UAC prompts will be shown during the runtime.

Privacy and security?
This app is virus-free and really does only what it promises to do. It does not  have any kind of telemetry or any unjustified communication with internet. There are just two cases when an internet call is made by MSIX Hero: (1) checking for the most recent version available (which can be triggered only manually by the user, there is no automatic check done by the app), and (2) attaching timestamp to signed packages (if timestamp server is configured), in which case signtool.exe contacts a timestamp server configured by the user. Note that Windows 10 may do extra stuff on its own (general telemetry and reporting, app installer update checking, Defender signatures update etc.) but they belong to Windows 10 and are not a part of MSIX Hero.

All binary files and MSIX packages are digitially signed to prevent tampering.
