Have anyone had success on creating a deploy Application that requires a configuration file? For example for, Command to install the applicaiton

msiexec /i "someapplication.msi" /q (followed by a "config.json" file)

How would you deploy both .msi installer and the configuration file like .json? Can both .msi and .json file be pushed to the client's C:\Windows\ccmcache folder?

    Application is quite straight forward, it just run the command you give it with (system/current user) context. So you have to figure out a command which works for you and then you give it to the applicaiton( based on the application itself). If there isn't just command, you can at least using a script (batch/ps/etc..) and let the application to run the script.
    All content in the application source path will be downloaded to client cache folder.

    Hi,

    You should create a folder that contains the installation source files and configuration files. Then create a deploy Application.

    Example:

    SCCM Office 365 Installer
