I work at a college in the IT department need some help, trying to install some software with intune. We have over 350 laptops on campus that need the updated software. I have followed the intune instructions on setting up the program; I need to uninstall the old software and install the new one in its place, but when we look into intune we getting an error that says there is a failure (App installation failed). I can't figure out what the issue is. Here is a snapshot of the information. 132422-lockdown.jpg

    I would try running those commands on your machine to ensure they work first, for both the install and uninstall commands.
    To uninstall, I personally include the required files used to install, so you're not having to rely on any other local files being replicated or present.

    Why is the installer lockdown running from c:\temp? What all have you wrapped in the win32 app? Also, does the lockdown installer run properly with /s that you have included in the command line?
