Microsoft WinGet Overview

What

Microsoft Windows Package Manager, known as WinGet, is a tool that simplifies discovering, installing, upgrading, and configuring software packages on Windows 10 and 11. It operates through a command-line interface, enabling efficient software management. Integrating WinGet with FileWave allows administrators to leverage WinGet's capabilities within the FileWave ecosystem, enhancing software deployment and management across Windows devices. This integration streamlines IT operations, reduces manual effort, and ensures consistent software configurations across all managed Windows devices.

Note that FileWave 15.4 or later is required.
