Which applications are ready to convert to MSIX? Are you curious?


Advanced Installer team put together MSIX-Ready -- a continuously updated collection of MSIX packaging evaluations of commonly used apps in the business environment.


Every new MSIX package we build allows us to learn more and improve the tools we build. The whole Advanced Installer team got involved.

Therefore it is only natural to share these learnings with you.

Check out the first batch of applications converted to MSIX. More is still to come.

And you can contribute with your MSIX projects - add your app evaluation here.

In October 2018, we were named Microsoft launching partners for MSIX technology being the first to support it. And, ever since, the Advanced Installer team has been continuously working to bring significant contributions to the market – supporting all IT Pros and Windows developers with practical features to help ease the transition to MSIX.

We plan a year filled with MSIX enhancements and many great features for you to use state-of-the-art technology.
