From the ReadMe file in his latest VPKTool 1.3 release, to quote:
VPKTool 1.3 - (c)2016 - c0d3m4st4
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 (if you use Windows XP, sorry, you are out of luck and you will need to upgrade or use other alternatives, as i'm not going to use 3rd party compression libraries).

Simply drag and drop your .vpk file. The application will generate 2 files:
Transfer the [TITLE_ID]_install.vpk to your PSVita and install with VitaShell.Code:[TITLE_ID]_install.vpk [TITLE_ID]_ftp.zip (unzipped in case of x86) [TITLE_ID].txt
Unzip [TITLE_ID]_ftp.zip file, then transfer the unzipped content to ux0:app\[TITLE_ID] on your PSVita.
You can also mark the new vpk file as safe, and also keep the original vpk by selecting so in the checkboxes.
Now a small differecence depending if you are running it on x86 or x64 (x64 offers better performance, and x86 funcionality had to be done this way to avoid problems with huge .vpk files).
x64: If you mark the "Unzip files for FTP" option, it will unzip the [TITLE_ID]_ftp.zip for you (this is done automatically on x86 due to some big files restriction). Also, on x64 [TITLE_ID]_ftp.zip is not deleted, maybe someone wanna store his games in this format, so those who don't need it will have to delete it manually.
x86: if you mark the "Backup zipped files (FTP files) it will create [TITLE_ID]_ftp.zip otherwise the files to FTP will remain unzipped).
The compression level dropdown let you choose compression level for all compresion operations. You can also repack the chosen .vpk file (and do nothing else), with the chosen compression level. This might be useful for upcoming Vitamin release; you can choose a faster dumping speed with less compression and then repack on computer which should be faster.
- Another small bug fix release for wrong repacks! Since i do not extract the whole thing when possible my app relies on correct ZIP structures, but seems everyone add the modules in different ways. This should hopefully fix all repacks now. Thinking of adding an option to add modules to the vpk from my app.
- Fixed bug affecting malformed .vpk files
- Added compression option
- x86 support back
- Added extra check to avoid unnecessary operations
- "Mark as safe only" option
- More error control to fix stupid crashes
- Improved stability... hey.. if Sony does it, i can do it too!
- Fixed crash with huge vpk files (out of memory)
- Added unzip option so it will the compress the files to FTP for you
- Fixed small bugs here and there... never release anything at 5:00 A.M.
- Initial release
