Should I install the Virtual Office Desktop exe or msi file on Windows?

Question

When installing Virtual Office Desktop v 6.0, should I install the .exe or the .msi file on Windows?

Applies To

Virtual Office Desktop v 6.0, Windows

Answer

If your IT Admin has allowed users to automatically update to newer versions of Virtual Office Desktop, users can install the .exe version of the app.

Note: On first upgrade from v 5.x to v 6.0, users will require access permissions on their PC to be able to add or remove software. Installing the v 6.0 .exe version will allow for automatic updates as they become available.

If you are an IT Admin and wish to control and push the Virtual Office Desktop application through an enterprise remote deployment mechanism, use the .msi file. Users with Virtual Office Desktop installed through an IT push will not be automatically updated but only receive updates through this mechanism.
