Bug: Windows PowerApp Player - Cannot use offline mode

The PowerApp Player for Windows (from the Windows Microsoft Store) supports the SaveData and LoadData commands for offline use of Apps. However, if you download an App then later start the PowerApp Player while offline, no Apps are shown. So it is effectively impossible to use a PowerApp while offline when using a Windows device.

It seems that if you start an App while online, then go offline, it will work (assuming it is 'enabled' of offline usage) so the issue simply seems to be that downloaded Apps are not correctly appearing on the list of Apps to choose from when starting the Player while offline.

We have a need to run PowerApps offline on existing Windows hardware (so moving to Android/iOS, where offline mode works fine) is not an option.

Is this a bug that the Micorosoft team are aware of? Is it being worked on and is there an estimate for resolution?




Sorry for that. Let's get that fixed now. We're looking into it.

Regarding the other issue now reported (if you don't use an app for a couple of days you can't launch offline), please open another thread when you repro that again, so we have a session id, and also to avoid it doesn't get lost in the middle of this windows specific discussion.

I will do that! Thanks again for assisting with this!

Sorry, still working on that. For now, can't provide an ETA.

Any further news on a fix for this bug? We have a project dependent on this feature that cannot be rolled out until the bug is resolved.


Many thanks
