We're thrilled to introduce our new feature: built-in support for repackaging in Windows Sandbox. Leverage an isolated repackaging environment without the hassle of a big virtual machine.

By repackaging applications in Windows Sandbox, you'll have a safe and controlled capture environment, making it easy to validate and improve your repackaging processes.
