Daniel looks like you have not received the last MSIX packaging tool update(1.2018.821.0) that added CLI support.


To force the update open the Microsoft Store app, click on the see more button in the top right corner, select Downloads and updates, then click on the "Get updates" button.




Hey Peyman,


yes that's right after a Update to the newest App I works like a Charm :)


Really nice!

Thanks and Regard,
