I have used the MSIX packaging tool to generate a msix package from our original msi package. If we have a valid file structure of MSIX package, are there any command line tool can generate the msix package automatically?

 

thanks,

Chunyang

MakeAppX.exe is what you need.

 

Even if the docs haven't been yet updated, so you only see the examples for building appx packages, I am sure it will works for MSIX packages too.

 

This tool is part of the SDK, so make sure you have the latest insider SDK on your machine before trying it out.
