  • Hello,
    Based on your description, when you use code on the Microsoft website for PowerShell to convert an app, it doesn’t work, Could you provide the screenshot about error?  You also try it again by way I Providing to see if it works.

    If you want to use PowerShell to convert an app, your machine could need some system requirements. There are some important limitations here.

    1. Operation system: Windows 10 Anniversary Update(10.0.14393.0 and later) Pro or Enterprise edition.
    2. Hardware configuration: 64 bit (x64) processor, Hardware-assisted virtualization, second Level address Translation(SLAT)
    3. Required resources: Windows Software Development it(SDK) for Windows 10.
    4. Download the Desktop App Converter from the Windows Store and the base image .wim file that matches your build
    Then you could need to setup the converter and base image. Finally you could convert desktop apps to Windows Store apps.
    More detailed information about convert desktop app you could refer to How to convert desktop apps to Universal Windows Platform apps with Desktop Bridge.

    Best Regards,
