    How did you achieve this?
    Did you check the box in the WIP policy to use Azure RMS encryption?

    I have both WIP and AIP setup on Win10 "without enabling the Azure RMS flag" and I think they are bumping heads.

    My Specs:
    Current OS Build: 10.0.15063.502
    Current Office Build: Office 2016 - Ver. 7017 Build 8326.2073
    Using Azure and WIP App Policy from Intune.

    It would be nice to see a tutorial on how they are configured to work together.

    Hi Ricardo!

    You can simple achieve this by WIP enable both Office and the AIP Client. By doing this everything that you RMS protect will be WIP protected as well.
    This will also solve your problem with WIP denies you from RMS protect a file with the AIP client.

    Please let me know if you need more instruction how to do the above.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the quick response Anders!
    Brilliant. Very logical that AIP exe's needs to be added to the allowed apps list in WIP.
    I completely overlooked it thinking there was some built in awareness.

    This completely solved my issue.

    Thanks again!
