So, am I missing something??? Wasn't like this before....
Now it's a PITA.
Someone please explain/help
I'm running Windows 8.1. If you use psexec you can launch the msi on the remote computer using your admin credentials. Let's say remote pc is called Test1. You would download pstools and place it somewhere in your C: drive. Then open a command prompt as an admin. Navigate to the pstools directory. Let's say your directory is c:\pstools. So in administrator command prompt type the following:
1. cd c:\pstools
2. psexec \\Test1 -h -u domain\admin -p password cmd /c Msiexec /qn /I "\\networksharedirectory\Ringcentral.msi"
It should install the msi on the remote computer silently. You could even create a txt file and list each pc name on each line. Then instead of listing the pc name in step 2 (Test1) you would just refer to the path of the txt file. psexec \\c:\pcnames.txt -h -u domain\admin -p password cmd /c Msiexec /qn /I "\\networksharedirectory\Ringcentral.msi"
Please fix this.

NOTE: After the upgrade to 9.0 version, all customers will automatically get the non-admin install functionality. It's not controlled by admin web portal settings. However, Users that are upgrading from version 8.x or lower to version 9.0 or higher will need to grant desktop administrative permissions once in order for the 8.x or lower version to be uninstalled.
RingCentral desktop app: Non-Admin Install
It is a waste of time for each user to install the app themselves as opposed to allowing us to image a new PC, install the app, and then just allow a user to login to their own windows/AD account to find the app is there and ready to go. You need to provide us with the option for the All users install versus the single-user installer.
