    Yes, any installer (MSIX, MSI, EXE) may be added (https://github.com/microsoft/winget-pkgs). There is even a new tool the Windows Package Manager Manifest Creator (https://github.com/microsoft/winget-create) to make it easier to build a manifest and submit it to the GitHub repository. Portable / Stanalone .exe files and .zip files aren't supported yet, but they are on the backlog.

  • winget-cli-restsource

    This project aims to provide a reference implementation for creating a REST based package source for the winget client.

    You can also stand up a private source. We have a reference implementation at https://github.com/microsoft/winget-cli-restsource. It's a bit tough to deploy presently, but we're making investments there. A PR is in progress with some PowerShell to make it easier to deploy.
