Installing .XAPK currently not supported. Will it get supported in the near future?

Scoped storage and Android 11 are making life difficult for PC-based applications. Installing the multiple apks within an xapk archive is no big deal, but pushing the archive's obb contents to Android/obb is throwing security errors. I am working on it.

When will WSA-Link get File Explorer the Feature to access the root File-System and the ability to transfer files from Windows Explorer to WSA (and there on the root file system)?

wsaLink's file manager isn't root-aware and does not directly interface with Windows file explorer. if wsa continues to allow a drop-in kernel after it moves into wide release I'll have another look at root. For now the shell and su are your best bet.

    Refuses to install APKs: Directs to LOG what I can't find.

    Look at Menu->Log->View wsaLink log. You can also see log operation in the video demo at 6:57m.
