Please note that this link automatically gets updated every time a new release gets pushed.

Please note: If the end user’s machine does not have the Windows Edge browser viewer installed, admin access is needed to install. Microsoft is coming out with a version of Windows Edge browser viewer that does not require admin access in January. If an end-user does not have access to the AppData folder, an admin should use the MSI to install on behalf of users.

Please note: The MSI Class version 2.0.1 automatically has the software update registry setting disabled. When software updates are available, please install the newer version of the MSI posted above.

For auto-updates:
If you run the installer in silent mode as follows:
msiexec.exe /I “Class Installer.msi” CL_AUTOUPDATES=”1” /qn this should turn updates on
msiexec.exe /I “Class Installer.msi” CL_AUTOUPDATES=”0” /qn this should turn updates off

For installing in a different spot/directory:
msiexec.exe /I “Class Installer.msi” CL_AUTOUPDATES=”1” INSTALLDIR=”<DIRECTORYPATH>” /qn 

The Class Windows app can be installed using an MSI installer with the following settings:

Note: MSI installations require elevated administrative rights.

The options /i, /x, /f[p|o|e|d|c|a|u|m|s|v], /j[u|m], /a, /p, /y and /z should not be used together. The one exception to this rule is that patching an administrative installation requires using both /p and /a. The options /t, /c and /g should only be used with /j. The options /l and /q can be used with /i, /x, /f[p|o|e|d|c|a|u|m|s|v], /j[u|m], /a, and /p. The option /n can be used with /i, /f, /x and /p.

Example: To install the Class MSI without any UI or input from the user, you can run the command “msiexec /i <nameofmsi>.msi /quiet /qn /norestart /log install.log”
