Breeze Agent Deployment Via Microsoft Intune

This article instructs on how to deploy Breeze agent via Microsoft Intune.

Breeze Agent can be deployed to Windows machine as a Windows app (Win32) application in Microsoft Intune.

Prepare the package necessary for creating the application in Microsoft Intune

1. Download the Microsoft Win32 Content Prep Tool to a Windows 10 machine (v1607 or later).
2. Create a temporary working directory on the disk and put the downloaded tool inside (e.g., C:\breeze).
3. Create a source directory named source inside (C:\breeze\source).
4. Rename the Breeze Agent distro file to the breeze-agent.exe and put it in the source directory (C:\breeze\source\breeze-agent.exe).
5. In the source directory, create a new plain-text file in UTF-8 encoding named install.cmd (C:\breeze\source\install.cmd) and paste the following content into it:

@echo off
start /B /WAIT breeze-agent.exe -gm2
if %errorlevel% NEQ 0 ( exit /b 1 )
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
set etc=%ProgramFiles%\Breeze\etc
if exist "!etc!" (
  set tags=!etc!\tags
  if not exist "!tags!" echo. 2>"!tags!"
  set str=preferred.descriptor=intune
  find /c "!str!" "!tags!" >NUL || echo:!str!>>"!tags!"
) else (
  exit /b 1

6. Start the command line and go to the working directory using the command:

C: && cd C:\Breeze

7. Create .intunewin package using the following command line:

IntuneWinAppUtil.exe -c C:\breeze\source -o C:\breeze -s C:\breeze\source\breeze-agent.exe

8. In the working directory there should be the package file (C:\breeze\breeze-agent.intunewin) to use in the next steps.
