I have a nodeJS script that processes an Inkscape SVG file and exports certain layers using the following command:

inkscape.exe "myfile.svg" -i ${id} -j -C --export-png="${outPath}"

However, on my new system, I installed Inkscape from the Windows Store, and now the executable is located in the C:\ProgramFiles\WindowsApps folder, which is not accessible. While I could change the permissions to access the folder, I believe it is locked for a good reason.

Is there a way to run a Windows app without accessing the WindowsApps folder? I am looking for a solution that works for most apps, not just Inkscape.
