Deploying MSIX app updates via Intune must not kill the running app
- You package a line of business application in MSIX format. I use a couple of versions of 7-Zip in my testing.
- You deploy the MSIX package via Intune (as a Line of Business app) as a required package to your end users. The app installs fine which is expected.
- Now package a new version of the line of business app.
- Deploy the package as required to your end users. The app installs fine, but the problem is that it is executed with the flag “ForceAppShutdown” meaning that the application while running is killed without warnings to the end user – This is not acceptable in any organization.
