EdgeHTML PWA Save to File

/**
In EdgeHTML / PWA downloading content by creating a download link on the fly and calling Click (traditional method) does not work.
TL;DR: See below for an implementation of the file download for EdgeHTML / PWA.
Longer explanation:
When running with the Spartan WebView as a HWA (Hosted Web App) or PWA MS Store, you’re running inside a UWP container with the associated security restriction. This has 2 implications:
• msSaveOrOpenBlob is not defined in this execution context for security reasons
• you can’t download directly a file on the file system using the a.download + a.click approach

Question: How can we install our UWP app with the required dependencies without an internet connection?

Answer: Per the question, if you are connected to the internet, the app dependencies as defined in manifest will be downloaded and installed from the Store. Typically, the dependencies list in the manifest looks like this: To install the dependencies without a connection to the internet, you must create the packages for sideloading.
