Master Packager is an application packaging tool to create and edit Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) files and repackage other installations to MSI format. This is a very useful tool for administrators who work on packaging applications with Intune and SCCM.
In our previous article, we demonstrated multiple methods to install fonts using Intune. Master Packager is one of the methods for deploying Windows fonts with Intune. The tool packs the Windows fonts into a .msi installer and makes it easy to deploy.
