Using Microsoft Winget with FileWave

What

Microsoft Winget is a new command line driven interface to access the msstore repository.  It works very similarly to something like apt-get if you have ever used that in a Linux environment.  This tool has quite a lot of potential, especially for auto-updating applications.

When/Why

We'll likely want to use winget if we want a simple way to manage applications through PowerShell, which of course FileWave calls with elevated permissions.

How

There are several potential things you might want to do with winget... you'll find details in each of the breakout articles below.


Note that winget is supported on Windows 10 (1809 and above) and Windows 11.  You'll find the Microsoft reference on winget here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/package-manager/winget/
