Hi All

 

Sorry if this has been asked before or seems like a silly question.

 

Anyway, when an app is pushed to a device, where is this located?

 

Info appreciated.

 

Stuart

Hi Stuart. Is the company portal app installed on the devices?

Hi There

 

Yes, the Intune Company Portal is auto deployed as part of enrolment.

Hi

 

are you talking about the local device download location, or the URL that is used to download the data to the device?

 

Check the log @ C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\IntuneManagementExtension\Logs\ for more information or;
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\IntuneManagementExtension\Apps\
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\IntuneManagementExtension\Win32Apps\

 

It should contain the location (usually Progfiles\intune folder\content\staged\) of the downloaded data for your app.

Hi Stuart,

 

it depends which channel you are using and which type of app,

Win32 apps via Intune Management Extension Agent are cached here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Intune Management Extension\Content

 

Windows LOB apps (single MSI) pushed via MDM channel like the Intune Management Extension Agent itself are cached here during install and then deleted:

C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\mdm

 

best,

Another fantastic and informative response Oliver, thank you

Hi Oliver, it appears that once installed the Cached content is deleted so is no longer available for any form of MSI self heal event. Do you know if there a away to change this behaviour?

Highlighted

Hi,

 

the cache folder was not cleaned up in the beginning. Now the Intune Management Extension cleans up the cache folders after successful installation.

I have an issue with MSI self-repair in Intune application. After installation executable files will deleted, hence getting this error.
what is the solution for this?
Highlighted

@vijaynaidu 

 

Use batch file or PSApp Deploy Tool kit, first copy your msi to Program data  folder and then execute msi from there. 

 

or remove key paths in msi.

@Oliver Kieselbach What is the meaning of below that I found in event log?

 

MDM ConfigurationManager: Command failure status. Enrollment Name: (MDMDeviceWithAAD), Provider Name: (Policy), Command Type: (Add: from Replace or Add), CSP URI: (./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/ConfigOperations/ADMXInstall/Receiver/Properties/Policy/FakePolicy/Version), Result: (The system cannot find the file specified.).

Hey @kkzimba,

 

the "IntuneSupportTeam" gave us the explanation a while ago, see here:
