Hi MS,

In our environment, the Teams update management has been configured to utilize the 'New Teams Client'. Users can toggle between classic to New Teams.

We have an internal tool for troubleshooting to extract information regarding the Teams client version and the latest update from the 'Teams.exe file's properties: Path : %localappdata%\Microsoft\Teams\Current\Teams.exe

The question we are seeking for the scenarios outlined below is, where is the 'Teams.exe' file stored?"

  1. When we toggled from the Teams Classic version to the New Teams client

Q.1 -Where is the "New Teams Client 2.0 "Teams.exe" file saved?
For Teams Classic it's saved under the following:

  %localappdata%\Microsoft\Teams\Current\Teams.exe  - This file is responsible for launching the MS              Teams App.   

2 Last week, MS released a "New Teams client 2.0 client.
Q 2 -Upon installing the New Teams client 2.0 on a new laptop using the following link, we are unable to see "teams.exe" file in any location. we need to determine the location where the Teams.exe file is stored.

Thanks in Advance!!

Regards,

    @@LiweiTian-MSFT For those seeking the location of the Teams.exe file for the new Teams client, I've discovered the path and am sharing it here.

    The path for the Teams.exe file for the new Teams client is:

    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\MSTeams_23272.2707.2453.769_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe

    The folder name for Microsoft Teams 2.1 (MSTeams_xxxx) changes with each version update. To ensure you have the correct folder path, open the Task Manager, navigate to the Details tab, and locate the ms-teams.exe process. Right-click ms-teams.exe and select "Open file location" to access the latest folder path.

    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\MSTeams_xxxx

    Hi @SamJ

    According to our research, New Teams shares an executable file with the classic version of Teams. Installing New Teams will not generate a new Teams executable file locally.
