Definition

public : StorageFolder EffectiveLocation { get; }
StorageFolder EffectiveLocation();
public StorageFolder EffectiveLocation { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property EffectiveLocation As StorageFolder

Additional features and requirements

API contract
Windows.Foundation.UniversalApiContract (introduced v8)

Remarks

If the app is declared to be mutable by including the windows.mutablePackageDirectories extension in its package manifest, this property gets the mutable folder for the installed package (that is, the folder under C:\Program Files\ModifiableWindowsApps where users can add files that modify the app). If the app is not declared to be mutable, this property gets the same value as the InstalledLocation property. The mutable folder feature is currently available only for certain types of desktop PC games that are published by Microsoft and our partners, and it enables these types of games to support mods.
