The Discussion

    Can you please clarify the scenario in which the DriverDependency and DriverConstraint need to be met in order for the appx to be installed?

    @ckh: Great question, if multiple DriverDependency elements are specified in the APPX Manifest, all of them need to be met for the appx to install. DriverConstraint elements describe drivers that satisfy a DriverDependency element.  Only one DriverConstraint element must be met in order for the DriverConstraint to be considered satisfied. The statement in the video has this logic reversed.
