    Add .exe or .msi packages to be installed (Windows ICD)


    Forgive me if I sound totally stupid for asking this but how do I use ICD to add apps such as MS Office 365, Chrome etc using Windows ICD because I can't find anything on search engines and the only option I can see allows .appx files and app bundles only.

    Please point me in the right direction? I am trying to create an image to use at work which will reduce our setup time.

    I looked at that video, and it was very helpful but it didn't show me how to add any applications.

    I am asking how I get the image to install applications such as Office, Skype for Business, Chrome, Adobe Reader etc. The only option I can see allows for modern windows apps only. (.appx)

    Try this out:
    Install a Win32 app using a provisioning package - Windows 10 hardware dev

    I've only gotten it to work correctly a couple times but it's probably what you want. If you can't get it to work you can also drop all the install files in a folder so they're waiting for you.

    WICD is not designed for this. What is your end goal, is this for just personal use or are you trying to mass deploy?There are far easier ways if you are looking for mass deployment. If this is just for personal use, it is a lot of work for the little bit of time you save. Also apps differ from programs. Chrome, office, etc. are programs where anything you get from MS Store is an app. Makes a difference when searching for help on this subject.

    I was looking at this in order to mass deploy, however we have since looked into other options that are more viable.

    I'm also in the process of customizing images for my company's machines. Which tools did you ended up using?
