Where is the Microsoft Store installation location of foobar2000?

I'm trying to install the foobar2000 Free Encoder Pack but the setup file defaults to the directory made when you install foobar2000 from its own setup.
However, I've installed foobar2000 using the Microsoft Store and I just need to know the directory so I can install the Free Encoder Pack.

The Store install is not meant to be edited by users like this. Only System and TrustedInstaller accounts have permission to modify files there. It should either bundle the files itself or be made able to use the binaries from some other install location by default.
But if you wish to go ahead the install can be found at %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps\Resolute.foobar2000_1.4.28.0_x86__cg7j1awqsza28.

Key word in that is "...there".  Try this with Store-install desktop-bridge-as-UWP program running (fb2k store version will do), to move (copy that is) those files from "...there" to "anywhere you want".

1. Task Manager
2. Details panel, switch to Name order so it doesn't flip around so much
3. Right-mouse-button (RMB) the program name
4. Select Open file location
5. Select all files, or those of interest
6. RMB, select Copy
7. Locate to a newly-created folder
8. Paste

There you go. These programs run fine.  And you can edit however you want.

The store folder could also be taken over if you dare to change the permissions.  But you don't have to.
