I have a few applications I'd like to deploy using our SCCM that do not have MSI files available.


What is the process for getting them into SCCM? Do I need to buy a third party utility to package them? If so, what do you recommend?

You don't have to use .msi files, they are just easier because SCCM will auto detect information from them when you create an application. First step is going to be figuring out the install parameters outside of SCCM. Once you have that down then getting it into SCCM is a preference thing. You can either manually specify the application information or build a package. I would not buy a packager until I'd exhausted all other methods.

If you can find the switches for the application you are looking for, it can be done the same way. You just have to fill in the details manually. For example, here was a test I ran for k-lite.

Installation program: K-Lite_Codec_Pack_1310_Full.exe /verysilent

Uninstall program: unins000.exe
Uninstall start in: C:\Program Files (x86)\K-Lite Codec Pack\

Run installation process as 32-bit process on 64-bit clients

Detection Rule
Setting Type: File System
Type: File
Path: %ProgramFiles(x86)%\K-Lite Codec Pack\MPC-HC64
File: mpc-hc64.exe

Install for System
