PreProvisioning and AppInstaller?


Is it possible to use DISM to pre-provision using an appinstaller file so that it is automatically updated?  If so, what is the DISM syntax for that?

I would be happy to help out with your inquiry.


The answer to your question regarding a pre-provisioning of an AppInstaller file, the answer is no. You can not pre-provision a Windows App by targeting an AppInstaller file.


We have a new feature that might. I am currently investigating this scenario, and will provide you with more information shortly.

Thanks. Be sure to let us know when it happens!



I've created a deliverable for the future to provide the ability to provision Windows Apps on an offline / online Windows OS with the AppInstaller file configured settings.


Please note, that I will be marking this comment as resolved :smile:.


Thank you,
