Installing WinDBG Preview without Microsoft Store

Are you facing a situation where you do not have access to Microsoft Store such as using Tiny10 or your PC is in an offline network? Fear not. There are ways to install the official WinDBG Preview package by following the steps below!

1. Obtaining Appx

Firstly, go to and paste the link of WinDBG Preview from Microsoft Store. Paste in the search bar and press the Tick button. The website will then obtain the package’s URL for you to download the AppX file.

If you don’t believe me it is an official package, you can check the download domain name of the download URL.

2. Installing the Appx

Once you have downloaded the Appx file, transfer it to the PC you want to install in. Open an administrator-privileged PowerShell and navigate to the location of the Appx file. Input and run the following command.

Add-AppxPackage -Path <Appx_file>
Add-AppxPackage -Path .\Microsoft.WinDbg_1.2202.7001.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe.Appx

Once installed, you can check your search bar for WinDBG Preview and it should appear there.
