What exclusions are necessary to UWP app, if i use UWF?

System: Windows 10 IoT Core (10.0.17763.1577) Raspberry Pi 3

I installed UWF optional package, and I added Exclusion for UWP apps (uwfmgr.exe file Add-Exclusion "c:\Data\Users\DefaultAccount\AppData\").

If UWF is enabled, I can't change UWP app startup on device portal.

Hi @IntelliSense-8139,

The Unified Write Filter (UWF) is a feature that protects physical storage media from data writes. UWF intercepts all write attempts to a protected volume and redirects those write attempts to a virtual overlay. The virtual overlay is a temporary location that is usually cleared during a reboot or when a guest user logs off.
So my suggestion is that you first set up the startup(or others) you want, and then use UWF.
There are no necessary exclusions, but there are recommended exclusions here.
Please see:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot-core/secure-your-device/unifiedwritefilter#recommended-exclusions

Best regards,
Seeya
