       - If Certificate details are provided along with the Publisher Name details (CERT Path, CERT Password and Publisher Name), then the publisher name of the converted package (which can be viewed in the AppManifest.xml file) will be overridden with the publisher details provided in certificate.


       - If only the Publisher name is provided, then the publisher name of the converted package (which can be viewed in the AppManifest.xml file) will be overridden by the Publisher name provided in the MSIX conversion options.

Hi ,

This is an option available in AdminStudio and not in InstallShield. Automated Application Converter(AAC) is one of the tool available in AdminStudio using which we can convert from one format to the other format.
Please have a look at the following help document to know more about AAC.
