Converting open source vector graphics Inkscape editor as Windows Universal app

Microsoft recently released project Centennial, a tool to convert any Windows desktop app as a Windows Universal package for publishing in the Windows Store or sideloading. I very much like Inkscape, it can handle many things Adobe Illustrator can do with graphics, but it’s free.

Today I decided to convert Inkscape as a Windows Universal app, and after about half an hour I was done.

  1. Check this Microsoft tutorial
  2. Download Centennial Desktop App Converter tool and Windows base image
  3. Setup your Desktop converter tool
  4. Run the downloaded Inkscape installer from through the converter, et voila!
