An open source tool to automate conversion of your App-V Packages to MSIX.

It seems I forgot to add a blog post about this tool when I released it last fall. So here it is to make it more visible.

AppV2MSIX is a powershell script that will automate the conversion of a folder full of App-V packages to MSIX. If you also have purchased TMEditX, it will also automatically analyze and fix up those packages, including the PSF if needed and dozens of other kinds of fixups.

It requires the free Microsoft MSIX Packaging Tool, plus a copy of SignTool and your certificate if you want to sign the packages directly from the MMPT. This is a straight conversion so no need to revert a VM between packages.

If you have TMEditX, skip the signtool and let TMEditX sign the final package.

You can read more about it, and download the files, from the GitHub page TimMangan/AppV2MSIX: Conversion scripts for an App-V to MSIX conversion (
