What is an APPXSYM file?

Appxsym file extension has Windows 8 App Package Symbols file type, developed by Microsoft, which is associated with the "developer files" category.

APPXSYM files are created during the packaging procedure of your app in Visual Studio when you select the Create App Packages option. This format appeared as the part of the app packaging system for Windows Store when Windows 8 was released. It contains open information needed for the program to be able to send crash reports (from users to Microsoft; using the developer dashboard in Window's Store). .APPXSYM files are injected into .APPXUPLOAD files when the application is added to Window’s Store. It is also possible to send .APPX files instead of APPXSYM – in this case, your crash report won’t include symbols.
