Dependencies install even if Win32app requirement rule not met

I just created a Win32app with 2 dependencies and an additional requirement rule. Requirement rule is essentially %ProgramFiles%\Dir\Subdir\myfile.exe file version is less than 34.41.6.31092.

I pushed this as a required install to a test machine that did not have the application installed and therefore should not meet the requirement. Instead, the 2 dependencies installed but the main application did not. I checked the Intune Extension log and it shows that the requirement check result was false, which is correct.

To me that means that nothing should have installed. Do dependencies install before the application requirement rule is checked now? This makes no sense.

@JoeH-0944 Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

For this issue, in intune official article, I find that dependencies is before the requirement rule check. We refer to the picture about the process of win32 app in the following link:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/mem/intune/develop-deliver-working-win32-app-via-intune#flow-behind-processing-of-a-win32-app-at-the-device-end

What my understanding is that the requirement rule affects Win32 app's installation, but it does not affect the dependence app's installation.

Hope the above information will help.
