Create win32 intunewin

Creating a Win32 app or «.intunewin» file is very easy.
The hardest part of any package is the installation logic itself. You can handle this in a PowerShell script or CMD file, for example. I personally prefer the way via PowerShell and name the installation file "install.ps1".
You can find an explanation of the structure here: my take on win32 apps - Intune

Once you have created your routine, proceed as follows:

  1. Load the current one Microsoft Win32 Content Prep Tool down
  2. Open the downloaded «IntuneWinAppUtil.exe»
  3. Provide the path to your package
  4. Enter the installation file, for me in each case: install.ps1
  5. Enter the path to the storage of the .intunewin file
  6. If there is already a file with the corresponding name, you can delete / overwrite it
  7. For the Catalog Folder question, we choose No (N)
  8. Done, that was the creation of the Win32 app / «intunewin».

Once the package has been created, you can use it in Endpoint Manager / Intune under «Apps > Windows apps" Add.
The parameters within the apps are then different depending on the application.
As install and uninstall command you can use in most cases use the following:

install command%SystemRoot%\sysnative\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -windowstyle hidden -executionpolicy bypass -command .\install.ps1
uninstall command%SystemRoot%\sysnative\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -windowstyle hidden -executionpolicy bypass -command .\uninstall.ps1
