fix Intune Win32 App Deployment Error 0x87D1041C

In this post, we will go over the steps to resolve Intune Win32 app deployment error 0x87D1041C. The error 0x87D1041C is seen when the Win32 app installs correctly on the device but is not detected by the company portal app.

One of the customers reported an issue with the deployment of Win32 apps in Intune. Users installed a newly packaged Win32 app, but they noticed something strange. The application was successfully installed, but the company portal indicated that it was not installed, resulting in error code 0x87D1041C.

The Win32 application in the previous query was a business app used exclusively within the company. After I fixed the error 0x87D1041C, I recreated it in my lab using an instance of the Adobe Reader Win32 program. In your case, it could be another application, however the resolution covered in this post will work. See how to package and deploy Win32 apps in Intune.

The error 0x87D1041C appears during the Win32 app deployment and translates to “The application was not detected after installation completed successfully.” The Intune Win32 App deployment error 0x87D1041C can be resolved by correcting the detection method under application properties.

After a few minutes, on our Windows device, we see a notification from Microsoft Intune Management Extension indicating that the application failed to install. The Intune Management Extension does not display any error code or the reason why the application failed to install in this case.

The company portal fails to detect the installed Win32 app, whereas the application is installed on the device. This is confusing because the user attempts to reinstall the application because the company portal shows the Win32 app is available for install. One should understand that in this case, the company portal is failing to detect the installed application.
