Work around for error 0x8000ffff on deploy (principally for windows 11 users)

See original GitHub issue

I there,

for installing (deploying for msixbundle) the app, open a terminal and type this command followed with the location of bundle:

add-appxpackage -path C:\Users\xarkam\Downloads\ChromaControl_0.1.3.0_x86_x64.msixbundle Of course, adapt the path to your situation image

Attempted this workaround by running PS as admin. I got the following error. Notes: This is a little more verbose than what it told me when I attempted to directly install from the msixbundle file after downloading, but it’s the same issue. When I attempted to download/install directly from the web/ repo, it said that the ms-appinstaller protocol has been disabled. The advisory in the PS response to check the logs was a lie. There’s no additional information provided by Windows to be of help, sorry Dev!

Looking further into the ms-appinstaller protocol being disabled, turns out it was the propagation method of Emotet/ Trickbot ransomware, Nice. It was removed from service Dec 15 2021 with plans to return it “in the future” according to Microsoft devs.

Currently using Win10 v.21H1

add-appxpackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x800B0101, A required certificate is not within its validity period when verifying against the
current system clock or the timestamp in the signed file.

NOTE: For additional information, look for [ActivityId] 91e7db12-091e-000e-3d41-10921e09d801 in the Event Log or use the command line Get-AppPackageLog
