How do I use the Windows Pieces Suite Installer?

Getting Started with the Pieces Suite Installer

If you’ve previously installed Pieces from the Microsoft store, you must uninstall older versions of Pieces and Pieces OS to leverage the Pieces Suite Installer.

💡 Steps to Uninstall

  1. Settings > Apps
  2. Right-click on Pieces OS and click “Uninstall”
  3. Right-click on Pieces for Developers and click “Uninstall”

Why do I have to remove older versions of Pieces OS and Pieces for Developers?

The Pieces Suite Installer inspects your device for upgrades, but previous versions were installed from the Microsoft store so they need to be wiped.

I’m not having any issues with my current version of Pieces. Why should I make the switch?
