I have the exe.  I need the msi for silent deployment.  I ask for this after every update and normally and admin provides it for me.

Thanks, Chris.

I sent that on over to you. Might take some time since it is a large file.

Ok. Nothing yet.  How large?  Maybe a link to download it from may work?

Hmmm...weird! Let me try again. It's 16 MB and I don't have a link for it.

I've emailed you again and included my gmail account as a backup if that's ok.

Good to know Chris...I put the address away as I am sure you and I are not the only admins which would benefit from this.

Why can't these links just be provided to the public, that it would make it much easier.

John,  When we have a new desktop app release, there are almost always back-end platform updates that go along with it.  It is never recommended to update the desktop app until the necessary platform updates have been pushed to your account.  We always do a controlled release where we push the update to a small number of accounts, then increase it to assure there are no major issues that were not discovered during the QA testing phase.  If a customer installs the MSI package and the necessary updates haven't been completed on the platform, then it causes issues which tie up our support agents.  So,  In almost all cases,  you should not update the MSI to a version that you have not been prompted to used, or unless advised to do so by a support agent.

Mike, sorry pal but I don't buy this. Surely you see how inconvenient this is, especially for enterprise accounts. System admins need MSI files so we can build deployment packages. The way this is presently structured where we need to request an MSI for every update is frankly annoying and cumbersome. I hate to always refer back to Zoom every time I have an issue with RC Meetings, (becoming more and more frequent but I digress) but as someone who is in the process of migrating his org from Zoom to RC Meetings, I am becoming very frustrated at the functionality my users are losing. I understand you build off Zoom's tech and claim to be a release or two behind - but the lack of functionality I'm seeing suggests that you're 5 or 6 releases behind, definitely not one or two. Zoom makes their MSI packages readily available for download with every single release. Why can't you?

Hey Everyone! I wanted to share with you a new link where you can download the MSI files for our programs. We hope this helps you :) 

I highly recommend bookmarking this for future use.

We also have a Glip
room where many of our customers who deploy the MSI files are able to chat and
ask questions. If you would like to be part of it, email us at community.support@ringcentral.com and we can add you!

Hi,
Can anyone provide a list of the non standard parameters available for the RingCentral Meetings .msi file.  In particular I'm trying to determine if the parameter to prevent auto-update is available (Zoom meetings on which I believe RC is based has zoomautoupdate).

Hi Rob,

One thing I was told was that you could prevent auto updates from occurring on RC meetings by using:  MEETINGSAUTOUPDATE="false".

The MSI files link above is no longer valid. I have emailed requesting a copy of the MSI be sent to me, but have to agree with Matt Smith that this is a very inconvenient method of providing this information.

Hey Brad, I can get to the link just fine. Could you provide more details about what you're experiencing?

So odd...The "MSI files" is hyperlinked to that page I shared. Hmmmm....I'll look into it. Thanks for letting me know!

Hello I have tried all of the links I've found on this page and none of them are working. Can you post a new link for the most recent .msi download?

Are the MSI files updated at the same time as the EXE downloads?

Hi Andrew, 

The MSI files and the EXE downloads are updated independently as updates become available. Sometimes this occurs at the same time, and sometimes it doesn't.

Hi Jessica,

Is there a kb showing msi switch options for us admins?  That would be helpful and to allow us to make feature request for the msi as needed.

Thank you,
John

Hey John, not at this time but it's something that I've brought up with our Product Team :) Hopefully they'll help our KB team create one
