Scripting Question

Silent, unattended install Microsoft Store apps script for multiple users?

08/22/2020 409 views

The scenario is I have someone say, “Hey, IT, I found this random Microsoft Store app. Can we install it on a couple dozen multi-user computers?”


I’ve searched and searched. I can’t find any straight forward way of installing this. I want to accommodate them. The app is decent and fills a valuable role. We don’t have Intune or SCCM. Is it possible to install this app? Are there any guides on how to do it?

  • I'm not sure this possible without the appx package. Here's some info from Microsoft: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-store/distribute-apps-to-your-employees-microsoft-store-for-business

If you want to add a new package for all users, you need to provision the package using Add-AppxProvisionPackage. This will install the app for all users, and when a user first logs on it will (should) install it for them. You also have to have the correct offline installer from Microsoft Store for Business.
