MSIX of MAUII app does not installed on Window server 2012 R2

I publish the MAUI project using this link:
and later install it on my computer window 10 and it works.
But when I tried to install it on window server 2012 R2 is not working.
What do I miss ?

In this article: it said:
Yes, for MSIX core, specify MSIXCore.Server in the manifest and it should deploy on Server.
How is done here is my window manifest in MAUI app.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<assembly manifestVersion="1.0" xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
<assemblyIdentity version="" name=""/>

<application xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">

Based on your screenshot, you cannot open msix file in the window server 2012 R2.

I search msix supported-platforms like following thread, it support on following versions of Windows:

Windows 10, version 1709, and later.
Windows Server 2019 LTSC and later.
Windows Enterprise 2019 LTSC and later.

I used this link:
"Look under Control Panel / Uninstall a program. "Windows Software Development Kit - Windows X.X.X.X" (where X.X.X.X is the version). It will be listed amongst all the other software you have installed on your machin"
Window 10 - Window Software Development Kit- Window 10.019041.685
Window Server-Not Found maybe with other name ?

MAUI doesn't support Server 2012R2 because MAUI for Windows runs on WinUI 3, and WinUI 3 doesn't run on Server 2012R2.

MSIX does not appear to be related to the actual problem here - from the error message, the issue is that the WinUI cannot be found.

WinUI 3 is supported on Windows 10 1809 and later, which is the client equivalent of Server 2019.

Why you can't run on Server 2019 can be discussed in your thread specific to that platform:
