Adding Software Packages in Windows Intune

Updated: January 1, 2014

Applies To: Windows Intune

To add software to Windows Intune, you can either upload software to be stored in the Windows Intune Cloud Storage space, or configure a link to an online store or web application. You can then deploy that software to computers and devices that are managed by Windows Intune. This topic describes how to use the Windows Intune Software Publisher.

Before you begin to use the Windows Intune Software Publisher, ensure that the Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.0 full version is installed. Note that after installing the .NET Framework, you might have to restart your computer before the Windows Intune Software Publisher will open correctly.

TipTip
The Windows Intune Software Publisher is interactive. The options and pages that are displayed will vary depending on the selections that you make. As you proceed through the Windows Intune Software Publisher, you can return to any previous page by selecting the page name in the page navigation pane.

As you progress through the wizard, mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk (*). Be sure to provide information in these mandatory fields. Otherwise, the Next button will be disabled and you will not be able to move on to the next page.

noteNote
When you choose to upload software, it is stored in the Windows Intune Cloud Storage that your organization purchased. If you have insufficient free space to upload the software package, you are notified of this during the upload process. Windows Intune cannot determine sufficient free space until after the software upload has started. This is because compressed setup and installation files require more space when they are uncompressed.

For more information about purchasing additional Cloud Storage space, see Purchasing Additional Storage for Windows Intune.

All software installer types are configured using the Windows Intune Software Publisher.

  4. Click Next.

    noteNote
    Based on the setup file you specify, Windows Intune Software Publisher attempts to automatically extract information to use in the name and description fields.

  1. On the Software description page, in Publisher, enter the name of the publisher; For example, Microsoft or Contoso.

  2. In Name, enter or change the name of the software. This is the name that will be displayed to the end user in the company portal. It will also be used for software searches that attempt to find this software. The names of all your software or app packages should be unique. If the company portal detects multiple apps with the same name, it will only display one of the apps.

  3. In Description, enter a description of the software. This description will be displayed in the company portal to the end user.

  4. In URL for software information, enter an address where the user can obtain more information about the software. The path must be in the format http://www.<address>. This field is optional.

  5. In Category, select the category that best fits this software. Use Other Apps for software that does not match the pre-defined categories. The selected category is used to classify this software for displaying and searching in the company portal. This field is optional.

  6. To associate an icon with your software, in Icon, click Browse and then select the desired file. The maximum allowable size is 250 x 250 pixels. The recommended size is 32 x 32 pixels. This field is optional.

  7. Click Next.

  1. On the Requirements page, specify the architecture and the operating system.

    Select one or more of the following Architecture is options:

    • Any — Select this option to specify that the software can be installed on any architecture.

    • 32-bit — Select this option to specify that the software can be installed only on 32-bit computers.

    • 64-bit — Select this option to specify that the software can be installed only on 64-bit computers.

  2. On the Operating system is list, select one of the following options:

    • Any — Select this option to specify that the software can be installed on any client operating system that is supported by Windows Intune.

    • From Windows XP — Select this option to specify that the earliest operating system that the targeted computers can be running is Windows XP.

      noteNote
      Windows Intune supports Windows XP Service Pack 3 only. Earlier versions of Windows XP are not supported.

    • From Windows Vista — Select this option to specify that the earliest operating system that the targeted computers can be running is Windows Vista.

    • From Windows 7 — Select this option to specify that the earliest operating system that the targeted computers can be running is Windows 7.

    • From Windows 8 — Select this option to specify that the earliest operating system that the targeted computers can be running is Windows 8.

  3. After you identify the earliest supported operating system, the Windows Intune Software Publisher displays a To list from which you can select the latest supported operating system.

    On the To list, select the latest operating system that the software publisher supports for this particular software. You can select All newer operating systems, or you can select a specific operating system.

    noteNote
    To remove a requirement, click the X that is adjacent to the requirement.

  4. Click Next.

You can use the Detection rules page to specify how Windows Intune determines whether the software exists on targeted computers. This feature ensures that software is not installed more than one time on the same computer.

ImportantImportant
If the software setup file that you specified earlier is a Windows Installer or .msp file, then the Detection rules page does not appear. This is because Windows Installer and .msp files contain their own instructions for detecting previous software installations. If this is the case, you can proceed directly to the procedure To add command-line arguments.

  1. On the Detection rules page, select Detect whether the software is installed by using the following rules (recommended).

    ImportantImportant
    The option Use the default detection rules is listed first on this page. However, you should not use this option because it will automatically overwrite any previously installed versions or customizations of this software that may already exist on a targeted computer.

    Instead, we strongly recommend that you use the second option, Detect whether the software is installed by using the following rules (recommended), which is preselected.

  2. On the Add Rule list, select one or more of the available detection rule types:

    • File exists

    • MSI product code exists

    • Registry key exists

    You can create multiple detection rules. For example, you can create a File exists rule to search for an existing file in one file path, and then create another File exists rule to search for an existing file in a different file path. You can also create multiple detection rules of different types. For example, you can add a separate Registry key exists rule in addition to the previous example search criteria. When both of these rules are in place, Windows Intune determines whether the file exists. If it does exist, the software is considered to be detected. If it does not exist, Windows Intune next examines whether the registry key exists.

    1. On the Add Rule list, select the File exists check box, and then click Add.

    2. In the Specify file path box, complete the file path. Include the file name that you want Windows Intune to find. In order to change the starting point to be %SystemDrive%, you can click the %ProgramFiles% list, and then click %SystemDrive%.

      • If you select %ProgramFiles% as the file path starting point, Windows Intune searches for the file in both Program Files\

        <file path> and Program Files (x86)\ <file path>, where <file path> is the subfolder\file path that you type in the box.

      • If you select %SystemDrive% as the file path starting point, Windows Intune searches for the file starting at the root of the computer’s system drive. This is usually drive C.

      Examples:

       

      Specified path Search action

      Program Files\Microsoft Silverlight\Silverlight.Configuration.exe

      The system searches for Silverlight.Configuration.exe in the Program Files\Microsoft Silverlight and Program Files X86\Microsoft Silverlight folders and subfolders.

      %SystemDrive%\Silverlight.Configuration.exe

      The system searches for Silverlight.Configuration.exe throughout the whole system drive.

      %SystemDrive%\DevTools\Silverlight.Configuration.exe

      The system searches for Silverlight.Configuration.exe on the system drive, in the \DevTools folder and subfolders.

    1. On the Add Rule list, select the MSI product code exists check box, and then click Add.

    2. In the Choose an MSI file box, click Browse to identify the name and location of a Windows Installer (.msi) file.

    1. On the Add Rule list, select the Registry key exists check box, and then click Add.

    2. In the Specify registry key path box, complete the registry key name that starts with HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\.

      Windows Intune checks both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the submitted registry path. If the registry key is found in either version, the software is considered to be detected.

      noteNote
      To remove a rule, click the X that is displayed adjacent to the rule.

  3. Click Next.

You can add command-line arguments to the software deployment package. See the software documentation for valid command-line arguments.

If you are uploading software that uses an executable setup file (.exe), it must run in unattended mode. Be sure to use any required command-line parameter (such as /q), to force the software to install silently (without user intervention).

If you are uploading software that uses a Windows Installer setup file (.msi) or Windows Installer patch (.msp), you may need to use command-line arguments in Name=Value pairs, such as TRANSFORMS=custom_transform.mst.

ImportantImportant
Do not use switched parameters (such as /q) when uploading software with a Windows Installer setup file (.msi) or Windows Installer patch (.msp). These arguments will cause the application installation to fail on the targeted computers.

  1. If your setup requires command line arguments, on the Command line arguments page, click Yes.

  2. In the Command line arguments box, type the command-line arguments.

  3. Click Next.

By default, the Windows Intune Software Publisher uses industry-standard return codes to report the failure or success of a software package installation. These return codes work with most industry-standard, off-the-shelf software. The supplied return codes are:

 

Return code Interpretation

0

Success

3010

Success with restart

Any return code that is not listed here is considered a failure.

Some software, especially custom line-of-business applications, uses nonstandard interpretations for return codes. In these cases, you can supply your own return code interpretations.

  1. On the Return codes page, click Yes.

  2. On the Add return code list, to select a return code type, select its check box, and then click Add.

    The default available return code types are Success and Success with restart. You can add both of these types.

  3. Type the return codes into the Return code boxes.

    noteNote
    You can edit the default return codes in the provided Return code boxes, instead of or in addition to adding new return codes.

    To remove a rule, click the X that is displayed adjacent to the rule.

  4. Click Next.

After you have entered all of the necessary update information into the Windows Intune Software Publisher, you can review your selections and optionally modify them before you start the upload.

  1. On the Summary page, review the software settings that you specified. You can scroll down as needed to view the complete summary.

    The Upload page displays the status of the software as it uploads to Windows Intune.

    noteNote
    Uploaded software is stored in the Windows Intune Cloud Storage that your organization purchased. If you have insufficient free space to upload the software package, you are notified of this during the upload process. Windows Intune cannot determine sufficient free space until after the software upload has started. This is because compressed setup and installation files require more space when they are uncompressed. After upload, the software files are compressed and encrypted and then stored in Windows Intune. This stored package contains all necessary Setup files for the managed software. Subsequently, the end user can extract and install the managed software.

    For more information on purchasing additional Cloud Storage space, see Purchasing Additional Storage for Windows Intune.

  4. The Summary page displays a message that indicates when the software has been successfully uploaded. To exit the Windows Intune Software Publisher, click Close. To deploy the uploaded software, see Deploying Software Packages in Windows Intune.
