Remarks

Dependency property identifier field: ExternalPartsProperty

This property identifies the external library packages that are required by the application, if any. These files are downloaded at application startup separately from the application package. This enables more efficient caching on the user's computer, which can decrease startup times for return visitors. For more information, see How to: Use Application Library Caching.
