This post will show how you can deploy an .MSI to an MDM enrolled Windows 10 machine in the Intune preview in the Azure portal. As noted, the device is enrolled in Intune, and does not have the Intune client installed.
This post will use 7Zip .msi as an example and it will be deployed as “Available” in the Company Portal app for a Windows 10 1703 device.
In the Azure portal (portal.azure.com), click on More Services, then search for Intune and select it.
Click on Mobile apps
In the Apps section under Manage, click on Add
Select Line-of-business app
Click on the blue browse button and select your MSI (allowed file extensions are ipa, apk, msi, xap, appx, appxbundle.)
Fill in the required details. For my example I have filled in the Name, Description, Publisher, and also selected an icon.
The .msi will begin to upload and you will get a notification when the .msi has been uploaded. Once it has been uploaded, you can assign the application to a group.
Next step is to assign the application to a group. This can be done under Assignments. In my example I have made it as Available to my user group called Intune. You can see the the other options below in the screenshot.
Now I will open the Company Portal app on my Windows 10 machine and install 7Zip.
