Installing application via intune - Silent Install not supported

I am trying to install an EXE application on an intune device, however the application does not support an unattended installation

Is there a way the user can select to install this in company portal then go through the GUI to fully install the application themselves

I have tried using a command prompt to run the installer hoping to present this to the user which does not appear to work, is there a way command prompt could fire up a second command prompt that begins this installation?

Many Thanks

    @Barrie Anderson, Thanks for posting in Q&A.

    For exe file, the way to deploy via Intune is via Win32. For Win32, the install commands need to support silent install. From your description, it seems the application does not support. So I think it can't be deployed via Intune Win32.

    For your situation, maybe you can contact the app developer to see if the app can be installed via PowerShell script or others.

    Hope it can help.

    In history, Configuration Manager (SCCM) did provide such capability, it has additional option something like "allow user interfer with installation process". But Intune does not have exact same option in Win32 tool. You could try to assign app for User Context and let it be available, but I doubt that might now work. In these cases, where application provider can't support you with providing silent switches to installer, only option is to record your own MSI for this app. I find "Application Repackager" from ITNinja being simplest one to do the basic job to have your own MSI ready.
