How to install Windows 10 Store Application automatically for end users?


We are a domain environment and controlling all of our domain computers using Group Policy, Registry, and scripts. At the moment we are uninstalling all the unwanted Apps using PowerShell scripts with the command for example " 3D Builder: Get-AppxPackage 3dbuilder | Remove-AppxPackage".

Now, we have started adopting a few Windows 10 Apps from the Microsoft Store. But I am finding it difficult to install all the Apps when and needed. At the moment I am installing manually via remote sharing software like TeamViewer or AnyDesk.

All of our Windows 10 Computers are Pro version. I am looking for a way to automatically install required Windows 10 Apps using Group Policy or through Registry or through PowerShell Scripts.

I found the below PowerShell command:

PS C:\> Add-AppxPackage -Path "C:\Users\user1\Desktop\MyApp.msix" -DependencyPath "C:\Users\user1\Desktop\winjs.msix"

But I am getting the error like “Destination folder was not found”.

So, far I am not successful in finding the answer from google so I need yours helps to achieve this task.
