Dear EPRS_Admin

You can use third party tools to achieve that, but these third party tools are not tested and confirmed by Microsoft.

We provide two workarounds:

1. Contact software provider to get a MSI file.
2. Deploy Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) to deploy EXE files.
For more information please refer to following MS articles:

Configuration Manager Planning and Deployment Overview

However you can try below solution if it full will your requirement.

SCCM is all but free, come on, that is a huge solution for a small problem :)
Simply take exetomsi and all is good http://www.exetomsi.com/
Screenshot_exetomsi2.0Unfortunately, they withdrew the free version (but compared to sccm, it's as good as free ;) )
I could send you version 2 via mail, it was free.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
