How can I download Light Party with and without the Microsoft Store?

This page explains, how you can download and install Light Party with and without the Microsoft Store.

How can I download Light Party with the Microsoft Store?

That's pretty easy! Just go the store page of Light Party with you computer and click on "Download".

Now the Microsoft Store should open where you have to click on "Download" once more. The rest should happen automatically and after a few moments, you should be able to use the application.

The advantage of downloading applications by the Microsoft Store is that they will be updated automatically, without any extra steps required by the user.

How can I download Light Party manually, without the Microsoft Store?

In most cases I don't recommend anyone to download the application manually because there no automatic updates and you will need to install a certificate in beforehand. But, if you really want to, you can download it without the Microsoft Store, too.

First, you need to download the latest release from GitHub. Unzip the downloaded file and open the new folder.

Then double click the .cert file (typically called "LightParty_x.x.x.x_x86_x64_arm_arm64.cer") and click on "Install certificate" in the new window.

Choose "Local computer" and click on next. Then click on "Place all certificates in the following store" and select the "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" store.

Complete the remaining steps of the wizard and click "Finish".

After you installed the certificate (you only need to do this once on your computer) you can install Light Party by double-clicking on the .msixbundle file (typically called "LightParty_x.x.x.x_x86_x64_arm_arm64.msixbundle") and clicking on "Install".
