Get Rid of “The image file <> must be smaller than 204800 bytes.” from WACK Report

When using Desktop Converter to auto produce APPX package, you may notice even the image file’s size is small enough in your app packagefiles folder, however the output APPX is still failed on WACK checking on image file size part.

To solve this:

1. Get latest Windows 10 SDK, run this command to manually package the app:

D:\Projects\myapp>”C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\x86\makeappx.exe” pack /d .\packagefiles /p myapp.appx /l

2. Run below powershell scripts to sign myapp.appx manually as well (this is for your local installation and test purpose):

cd “C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\x86”

.\MakeCert.exe -r -h 0 -n “CN=B1XXXXXX-990F-467C-B5C2-XXXXXXA0BDFA” -eku -pe -sv d:\output\3d.pvk d:\output\3d.cer

.\pvk2pfx.exe -pvk d:\output\3d.pvk -spc d:\output\3d.cer -pfx d:\output\3d.pfx

.\signtool.exe sign -a -f d:\Output\3d.pfx -fd SHA256 -v D:\test\myapp.appx

3. Now run appcertui.exe to check the myapp.appx again:

Run “C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\App Certification Kit\appcertui.exe”, Select Store App (it will create a report,but need you set the output path everytime), make sure the report shows PASS result:
