      Desktop App Converter is a pre-release tool that enables developers to bring their existing desktop apps written for .NET 4.6.1 or Win32 to the Universal Windows Platform. The developers can run their desktop installers through the converter in an unattended (silent) mode and obtain an AppX package that can be installed via the Add-AppXPackage PowerShell cmdlet on their development machine.

      The converter runs the desktop installer in an isolated Windows environment using a clean base image provided in this download. It captures any registry and file system I/O made by the desktop installer and packages as part of the output. An AppX with package identity and an ability to call a vast range of WinRT APIs is outputted by the converter.
