Desktop App Converter tool updated in Windows Store with new improvements

Windows Desktop App Converter

The Desktop App Converter (DAC) tool enables developers to bring their existing desktop apps written for .NET 4.6.1 or Win32 to the Universal Windows Platform (UWP). They can run their desktop installers through the converter in an unattended (silent) mode and obtain an AppX package that they can install by using the Add-AppxPackage PowerShell cmdlet on their development machine. Desktop App Converter tool was updated today in Windows Store with new improvements.

• Support for auto-signing the converted apps produced by the Desktop App Converter.
