Transferring Microsoft Store saves to the Steam version

The Microsoft Store save game data location should contain folders which lead to files with hexadecimal names that are either 119KB or 128KB in size.

The 128KB file is the save\system.sys file in the Steam save game data location.

Each 119KB file is either a savegameX.sav or a savegameX.clr (created after beating the game) file in the Steam save game data location, where X is the index of the save, starting at 1.

Which Microsoft Store save is which index can be deduced using the "Date modified" property of the file and the in-game save date.

Transfer is done by copying files from the Microsoft Store location to the Steam location and renaming the copied files correctly.

Issues fixed

The issue is due to N versions of Windows, because it has no built-in Media Features Pack.
