iAuditor has expanded across both of the major mobile operating systems and is now available on Windows 10 Mobile. But how should you set it up? Below we have three separate methods and a step-by-step guide for each.
This is the easiest way to get iAuditor app for your windows 10 device.
Note: You must have a Microsoft account to log into the Windows Store and search for the app
If your team members don’t have individual Microsoft accounts there is an alternative way to give them access to the Windows 10 app. If they have an Office365 account for products like Word and Excel, they can use their Office365 account to login and download the app.
If Windows Store access is restricted, you can download it through an app called hockey app. iAuditor is available for side loading through the hockey app. Click this link for more information. If you cant access the link then please request access by contacting [email protected]
Note: You will need administrative rights to install, and enable sideloading by going to settings and developer options.
Another easy way to distribute app for all of the users on the device is by creating a group policy on domain controller or on the machine to run the installation file iAuditorInstaller.exe or Install-iAuditor.ps1 power shell scripts.
You need a group policy which runs on LogOn or you can schedule to run this file daily. This group policy simply triggers an installer file, which then makes sure the app is installed every time new user is logged on the device. You can schedule it to run every day to check for new updates available. Then all you have to do is replace the shared folder on the domain controller with the new package and the installer will update new version. If the version is same on the device then installer will ignore the installation.
Note: You would need to make sure the device is enabled for Sideloading in the group policy
Make sure installation is run under Administrative privileges. If you are installing using the powershell script, then you do have to make sure device is set to run powershell scripts in the group policy.
All these settings can be set in the group policy of the domain controller which will then be pushed to all of the machines.
If you already using System Center Distribution or MDM to maintain software on the devices then follow this instructions.
You can download the side loaded version of the app by following the steps mentioned in #3 Alternative: No Access to Windows Store and distribute the app internally by following the below link through System center distribution.

DISM is a command-line tool that you can use to service a Windows image—online or offline. (If you are not familiar with DISM, see Deployment Image Servicing and Management Technical Reference.) You can use DISM to provision a Windows Store app in an online Windows image for all users who share the computer. To do that, you use the Add-ProvisionedAppxPackage option:
DISM /Online /Add-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackagePath:“//SampleDrive/iAuditor/Version/22.214.171.124/ 6.1.0_ARM_x86_x64.Appxbundle” /skiplicense

Q: How do customers manage updates to the app once they have rolled out the app through the custom installer?

A: Whenever a new release is published to the windows store, the same version will be available for download through the hockey app. There will be notification send to all of the users who have previously downloaded the side loaded version through the hockey app, and it will contain details about the new release. You can download the new version of the app by following the steps mentioned in the option – Alternative: no access to Windows Store.
Q: How does side loaded version of the app can be updated in the domain environment setup?
A: Basically, if you have followed the option to sideload iAuditor with the hockey app and distribute the app internally to all of the users, then it is very easy to roll out the upgrade. You will need to release the files on the shared folder with the newly downloaded version. The installer when it runs for the users on login will detect if the package is updated and will install the update seamlessly.
