GoTo Resolve unattended MSI deployment in Intune (Microsoft Endpoint Manager)

To deploy GoTo Resolve via Intune, you must first prepare the app for Intune "Win32 app deployment" and then create that app deployment in Intune.

Get the MSI file for the GoTo Resolve app and prepare it for Intune Win32 app deployment

  1. Create the following folders:
    • C:\temp\intunewin\input
    • C:\temp\intunewin\output
    Note: You can use any other folder on your computer that you have access to.
  2. Copy the [GoToResolveInstaller]_.msi file to the C:\temp\intunewin\input folder.
    Important: Make sure you do not rename the MSI file. Otherwise, deployment in Intue will not work.
  3. Download the IntuneWinAppUtil.exe file from the Microsoft website.
  4. Save the intunewinapputil.exe to the c:\temp\intunewin folder.
  5. Open a command line and type the following:
    C:\temp\intunewin\intunewinapputil.exe -c c:\temp\intunewin\input -s [GoToResolveInstaller]_.msi -o c:\temp\intunewin\output
    Note: The -s switch specifies your GoTo Resolve MSI filename. Use the actual name of the file you have in the command line.
  6. Intunewinapputil creates an encrypted package with an .INTUNEWIN extension in the c:\temp\intunewin\output folder.

    Your end users will see this information, for example in your Company Portal.
  8. Click Next.
    The Program page is displayed. The install and uninstall command lines are automatically populated from the intunewin file.
  9. Type the following command in the Install command field to make sure that it is properly set:

  17. On the Assignments page, select the deployment targets for your app.
    • If you want your app to be deployed silently on a group of users or computers, or to all users or devices, then use the Required section of the window to specify the target groups, users, or devices.
    • To make your app available in the Microsoft Company Portal app for all Intune-managed Windows computers, then use the Available for enrolled devices section to select the target groups, users, or devices.
  18. Click Next.
  19. Review the settings that you have specified during the previous steps for your app deployment, and click Create to finish the Win32 app creation.
    Your app package will now get created and the intunewin file will begin to upload to Intune. Wait until the upload is finished.
  20. Intune will now begin to deploy your app according to your settings on the Assignment page.
