MSIX Packaging Tool 1.2019.1220.0

The January 2020 release of the MSIX Packaging Tool is now live!!


The January 2020 release brings a handful of improvements and features. 


We have added some support for new features that are part of Windows 10 version 2004.   The MSIX Packaging Tool supports the capturing of Windows services.  We also enable all packages to leverage the improved package integrity features.  While both of these features are part of the Windows 10 version 2004, you can still use Windows 10 version 1809 for your repackaging environment.  


We have made more improvements to the packaging flow and added the ability to drag and drop of files with in the package editor.


For folks that love the Quick Create VM, we have updated that to include the new version of the MSIX Packaging Tool.  We have also updated the OS to Windows 10 version 1909.  

More details on the update can be found here. (

We are already working on the next version.  If you have a feature ask you can submit ideas in the MSIX Tech Community here or via Feedback hub.  If you are interest in checking out the new features we are building beyond the October release don't forget to join our insiders program.  Link below.
