How do I open the MakeAppx.exe file? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

    So I want to create an appxbundle file from a folder containing an uwp app with MakeAppx.exe which is normally located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\x64\makeappx.exe. Now the file doesn't open by double clicking on it so can anyone tell me how do I execute that MakeAppx.exe file?

    After that, you can refer to Create an app package with the MakeAppx.exe tool to check the syntax and options.
