How to deploy the Microsoft Intune Application

on Windows 10 Devices?

This article has been created to assist I.T. Professionals like you dear readers who uses Microsoft Intune cloud based “Mobile Device Management” solution in deploying applications to Windows 10 devices on a corporate setting or on a lab environment.

If this is your first time to use Microsoft Intune to deploy application I strongly suggest that you try to do a test application deployment using a known or common application like 7-zip or adobe reader in .msi (MSI is an installer package file format used by Windows) file installer program.

At present Microsoft Intune support msi based installer so if you have a setup.exe file you would still need to convert or repackage it using a thirdparty application packager to convert it to msi installer format so you can deploy Windows 10 devices via Microsoft Intune.
