MSIX Packaging Tool 1.2019.402.0
We are also pleased to announce an updated version of the MSIX Packaging Tool (v1.2019.402.0) is now available. The tool enables IT Pros (and developers) to update their existing app installers to MSIX.


The latest version now supports new features like: conversion on a remote device (physical or virtual machine), an improved signing experience that supports timestamping, and more improvements to package editor (including auto-versioning).


In addition the new update incorporates other feedback directly from our enterprise customers, the tech community, and the Feedback Hub app. We continue to provide improvements to the conversion experience and help to increase conversion success. 


For folks wanting to create a new Quick Create VM, that is now available as well for new virtual machines.

More details on the update can be found here. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/msix/mpt-overview)

Thanks for the support and feedback, we already started building new features for the next release.  Keep the feedback coming and don't forget we have an Insider program for folks wanting to earlier access to in-development features.
