    It's very hard to understand why this is set up to behave this way. One more vote for Get-AppPackage -allusers needing to run elevated causing issues with detection when the .msix it's trying to detect is deployed to a user collection. A coworker of mine ran into it today, and we were all scratching our heads until I found this page via google.

    It would also be nice to know what criteria it's using to determine whether any given app has a deployment or not. In my environment, it appears to be excluding some apps that don't have deployments from its results, and *not* excluding some which are referenced by task sequences but don't have stand-alone deployments of their own. Obviously if an app is in a TS, you wouldn't want to delete it. Even given that the MI is not excluding some things that I am, the report I wrote to display apps w/o deployments before I knew about MI returns ~1.6X as many apps as the MI does, so I'm not convinced the MI is actually useful.

    I have similar concerns regarding the empty collections MI - if I query v_Collections for collections with MemberCount = 0, I get ~2.5x as many collections as the MI provides.

    None of the documentation I've been able to find so far gives any detail on how MI is making these determinations, so it's really hard to understand the differences in results, and without understanding, I'm leery of actually making use of MI.
