Are you a Microsoft Intune user? If so, we have some good news for you.

The popular cloud-based Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution recently has increased the maximum size limit for Win32 apps from 8 GB to 30 GB. 

Microsoft has quietly updated its Intune’s documentation, as we’ve just spotted today. This change will allow organizations to deploy larger and more complex enterprise applications to their Windows devices.

“Although it’s possible for cloud-connected customers to use Microsoft Configuration Manager for Windows app management, Intune-only customers will have greater management capabilities for their Win32 apps,” Microsoft also says. 

The file size cap has been a problem for users for years, especially for larger apps. Users have then resorted to methods like opening a Premier Support case with Microsoft & submitting a Business Impact Statement, or loading it into Azure Blob and then calling a PowerShell script to download & install it.

Microsoft Intune is a useful UEM solution that simplifies device and app management across various platforms, including Windows, macOS, iOS/iPadOS, Android, and Linux. 

It acts as a central console where you can control device settings, enforce security policies, and deploy necessary apps securely.
