    Hi Lin, Po-Ting (Kevin),

    Thank you for contacting us on Microsoft Q&A forum.

    By default, Configuration Manager (SCCM) does not support deploying unsupported file types like .IntuneWin packages or certain types of Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise locally. These file types are typically designed for specific deployment methods or management platforms that are not directly integrated into SCCM.

    However, administrators often find workarounds or alternative methods to achieve deployment goals. For example, .IntuneWin packages can be converted into .zip files and manually deployed as discussed earlier, but this method involves extra steps and may not leverage SCCM's native capabilities fully.

    When deploying Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise (formerly Office 365 ProPlus), SCCM generally uses the Office Deployment Tool (ODT) to download and distribute installation files. This method is supported and recommended by Microsoft for deploying Office applications with SCCM.
