Event Type



An app package is staged when it is added to the device but is not yet registered.

If the PackageCatalog is obtained using OpenForCurrentPackage, the app only receives package events for itself or its related packages such as optional packages.

To get package events for all packages being staged by a user, obtain the PackageCatalog using OpenForCurrentUser instead.
