Unification of Win32 and UWP

Looks like QT6 does not support UWP:

During this year’s Microsoft Build conference Microsoft announced the
unification of Win32 and UWP for their IoT offering. In general, it
looks like Microsoft is stepping away from their strict stance about the
usage of UWP technology and the Windows Store. Getting a classic Windows
application into the Windows Store is much easier nowadays and will be
even simpler in the future. Microsoft’s new direction in their IoT
offering will bring more “classic Windows development” into the IoT
world and there will be no need for a dedicated UWP port.

    Supported Platforms

    Microsoft is continuing to forge ahead with its plan to try to close the divide between Win32 and Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps. This year, its strategy around this is getting a codename — “Project Reunion” — and more of a formal structure, which Microsoft is announcing at Build 2020.

    Microsoft has been working to bring win32 desktop apps and its Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps closer together in recent years

    Project Reunion is a new platform that extracts Win32 and UWP APIs from the OS, and offers them in a NuGet package manager way instead. It will deliver modern Windows features to developers who use C++, WPF, Windows Forms, UWP, and React Native to build their apps.
