Export Apps from Endpoint Manager

Hi everyone!

I am currently working to export some apps out of Endpoint Device Manager admin center. Unfortunately, I am not finding any way to export the .intunewin files out of the portal. I found an article where someone wrote a script to freeze IMEMCACHE essentially so that when you push the app to the computer it grabs the .intunewin file.

Does anyone have suggestions for a way to get the packages out of Apps section of Endpoint Device Manager? I don't like the idea of having to push the install of every app I need and grab it from IMEMCACHE to get the app.

Thanks!

@TrentBecker-6165 Thanks for posting in our Q&A forum. From your description I know that we want to export the .intunewin file directly from Intune portal. If there is anything misunderstanding, please feel free to let us know.

As far as I know, the inner .intunewin is the encrypted source folder and the encryption info is stored in the detection.xml. Currently there is no direct way to extract it.

Otherwise, I noticed a blog mentioning that it can be done using the IntuneWinAppUtilDecoder tool, more details please refer to:

Note: none-official link, just for reference. Hope it can help!

Hi Jarvis! Thanks for the response! You have it correct that I am looking for a way to export .intunewin files from the Apps portal in Intune. Or really any way to export the files once they are published. I have already found a way to export the files out of the .intunewin file once I have it. I can't seem to find a way to get the .intunewin files out of Intune once they are published. Any ideas how to get those out would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Just going to mark this for my own answer in case anyone finds it.

At this time Microsoft doesn't support exporting uploaded .intunewin files or even decoding them. There are some programs others have written to decode .intunewin files and another tool that freezes a machines IMEMCACHE and then you push the deployment to the machine and can grab it from it.

It's crazy that Microsoft offers no way to get the files you have uploaded back, but tis the way of Microsoft.

@TrentBecker-6165 Thank you for your attention to this issue, as mentioned above using a script tool to export intunewin files is the current solution (although not very convenient). You can also upvoted this request on our UserVoice (now aka feedbackportal), hope soon there will be a better solution in the future, https://feedbackportal.microsoft.com/feedback/forum/ef1d6d38-fd1b-ec11-b6e7-0022481f8472

Best regard,

Hi Jarvis,
As mentioned above using the script decodes the .intunewin files and does not export them from Intune once they have been uploaded. The specific point of this topic was to export them back down from Intune not to decode them.

To also add the decoder tool was not created by Microsoft either so right now Microsoft offers no solution at all for this.
