Enterprise Installer for Kahua's New Host (Win UI)

The Kahua enterprise installer provides system administrators with a method to install the Windows Desktop application across multiple machines throughout an organization.  Often, organizations encounter unique challenges when deploying desktop applications across their network.  The Kahua enterprise installer assists with pushing our native host to a large user base. 

Kahua's new Windows Desktop application is a Win UI application powered by the Windows App SDK and is installed as an application in the users Program Files directory. 

The application is installed via side-loading using an .appinstaller file that configures the behavior for app updates (they are required). The .appinstaller points to the actual msix package that is installed and maintained by the Windows OS. 

Per best-practice, the msix filename includes the version # of the application.

If the .appinstaller file extension has been restricted/disabled, Kahua for Windows can be installed from the enterprise .msix file located at:


For users that are granted the ability to open the .msix file direction, installation will proceed when the user opens the .msix


For users that do not have the ability to open the .msix file, PowerShell can be utilitize to install the .msix:


Add-AppPackage -AppInstallerFile .\kahua_windows_x64_enterprise.msix
