Deploy a win 32 app

One of our clients use Quicken app for finance management and it needs to install updates quite often which creates disturbance for users in the middle of the work. Our goal is to simplify and automate the update process for this application through Intune so that everything happens in the background without any interaction with the user. Quicken does have an .exe installer that installs all latest updates by default and for the upcoming patches we plan to configure app supersedence so that it remains current.

From our last deliberation with Quicken support, they mentioned that their app does not support a silent install and we are not completely certain if that implies that it cannot be done through Intune once we convert the installer to .intunewin.

So far, we have deployed it with install and uninstall command line arguments as Quicken.exe /qn /exenoui /norestart and Quicken.exe /qn /uninstall without success as the installation fails after being stuck on "waiting on install status" for a while. After making some modifications to the command line, the last error reads "The unmonitored process is in progress, however it may timeout". The detection rule is to confirm the presence of quickenPatch.exe file under C:\Program Files (x86).

From analyzing the Intune management extension log file through CMTrace, we see lot of detail and not sure what that really implies. For instance, there are some lines highlighted in yellow as "Application Poller stopped", "Unlock DoWorkInternal", "Session Change Detected", "Session Lock", "Session Unlock" etc.

We'd appreciate any advise on how we can make this work.

    Hello @RMahajan .

    I would like to help with some more information. When running the "Quicken.exe" setup, before clicking NEXT, you can see that the wizard copies all application files to the path:

    User's image

    %Temp%: C:\Users\UserProfile\AppData\Local\Temp\pft659E.tmp\DISK1User's image

    User's image

    I believe you can explore the files (quicken.msi, setup.ini and qsetup.ini) by creating a powershell or batch and then create the application in Intune.

    @RMahajan,Thanks for posting in Q&A.

    From your description, I know that you want to deploy Quicken app via Intune but get some problem.

    Based on my researching, I found that if you want to deploy a win32 app via Intune, the app itself should support install silently. According to your description, the app does not support install silently.

    Therefore, we suggest that you contact app developer to ask if there is other way to batch deploy it via Intune.

    Thanks for your kind understanding.
