I want to explore MSIX, the concept is very interesting. So before deploying MSIX using SCCM, I have this question.

 

Enterprise wise, we want to gather information for the multitude of deployed applications. We used SCCM (Configuration Manager) for Software Inventory. Does anybody know how to retreive applications deployed with MSIX format?

 

I have also posted this question in MSIX community.

 

Thanks!

@Bigair-Mifi MSIX applications are inventoried as part of Hardware Inventory, just like any other application that registers in the Apps & Features list in Windows. There's no need to use Software Inventory for this. In fact, I always advise against using Software Inventory, unless there's a very clear use case for it.
