This article contains testing results for compatibility when using the Microsoft MSIX Packaging Tool without the benefit of the PSF.

Testing results are aimed to determine levels of application compatibility of taking a variety of traditional vendor application installers and packaging them with this tooling. The tests are designed to simulate the acceptance criteria of a fairly picky Enterprise that would choose to not deploy MSIX packages unless they work as well as the original. A wide selection of applications are included with a goal of covering much of the Windows API.
