Troubleshooting Microsoft Store app (New) deployments

In this article, we will see troubleshooting steps that can be followed when troubleshooting the new microsoft store apps deployed from Intune.


The new Microsoft store app deployment leverages Windows Package Manager framework to download the applications an install them in the client devices. This framework can be accessed using command line tool called WinGet. The WinGet command line is only supported on Windows 10 1709 or later at the moment. The Winget tool will only be available once user logged to Windows as a user for the first time, triggering Microsoft store to register Windows Package Manager. Below diagram is a simple representation of how the flow works in the background.

When troubleshooting the new store app deloyments, you might want to first check if the device meets pre-requisites mentioned here. Once the validations have been completed, it would be helpful to check the app type that is being deployed: Win32 or UWP.

Once the app type is determined, we can check the IME logs on the client to see the events related to app installtion. The IME logs will be located in “C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\IntuneManagementExtension\Logs”.

If we see issues with downloading or installing the application, we can launch the WinGet command line tool in the affecte machine an search for that application:

**winget search appname **

If the winget tool is not able to find an app, it is possible that app repository source have not been added in that device. You can use the following link to review existing list and add or remove any repository source.
