Rather than a work around to get past Windows App Store constraints, consider running an Android emulator like Bluestacks and use the Android version of the app on Windows.

There is a work around to install apps without the Microsoft Store. It is not my work around so here is the original link. The walk through is very thorough.
To make it clear,  Explore Scientific does not recommend nor endorse this method of installing the ExploreStars application on you Windows PC. I don't understand the "android_app" parameter value in the link above. This is not Android.
