Get information about app packages (.appx) in an image that will be installed for each new user via Deployment Image Servicing and Management. For information about app packages that are not provisioned, use Get-AppxPackage instead.

      Get-AppxProvisionedPackage  {-Path String | [-Online]}
         [-WindowsDirectory String] [-SystemDrive String]
            [-LogPath String] [-ScratchDirectory String]
               [-LogLevel LogLevel] [CommonParameters]

       The maximum output level shown in the logs. The default log level is 3. The accepted values are as follows:
          1 = Errors only
          2 = Errors and warnings
          3 = Errors, warnings, and information
          4 = All of the information listed previously, plus debug output

       The full path and file name to log to.
       If not set, the default is %WINDIR%\Logs\Dism\dism.log.
       In Windows PE, the default directory is the RAMDISK scratch space which can be as low as 32 MB.
       The log file will automatically be archived. The archived log file will be saved with .bak
       appended to the file name and a new log file will be generated.
       Each time the log file is archived the .bak file will be overwritten.
       When using a network share that is not joined to a domain, use the NET use command together
       with domain credentials to set access permissions before you set the log path for the DISM log.
       Specifies that the action is to be taken on the operating system that is currently
       running on the local computer.
       Specifies the full path to the root directory of the offline Windows image that you
       will service. If the directory named Windows is not a subdirectory of the root directory,
       -WindowsDirectory must be specified.

       Specifies a temporary directory that will be used when extracting files for use during
       servicing. The directory must exist locally. If not specified, the \Windows\%Temp%
       directory will be used, with a subdirectory name of a randomly generated hexadecimal
       value for each run of DISM.
       Items in the scratch directory are deleted after each operation.
       You should not use a network share location as a scratch directory to expand a package
       (.cab or .msu file) for installation.
       The directory used for extracting files for temporary usage during servicing should be
       a local directory.

       Specifies the path to the location of the BootMgr files.
       This is necessary only when the BootMgr files are located on a partition other than
       the one that you are running the command from. Use -SystemDrive to service an installed
       Windows image from a Windows PE environment.
       Specifies the path to the Windows directory relative to the image path.
       This cannot be the full path to the Windows directory; it should be a relative path.
       If not specified, the default is the Windows directory in the root of the
       offline image directory.

Use the Online parameter to specify the running operating system on your local computer, or use the Path parameter to specify the location of a mounted Windows image.

This cmdlet was introduced in Windows PowerShell 5.0.
