Update Teams RDS server

Glen70 21 Reputation points


We want to update Teams for all users on a Windows 2019 RDS server. We install the newest version of teams with the command below.

msiexec /i C:\users\<username>\downloads\Teams_windows_x64.msi /l*v logteams.txt ALLUSERS=1

Unfortunately the Teams update will not be installed for the users. How can we update Teams for all users? We use FSLogix for the user profiles.

With kind regards,

    We did it this way for all users so its in the program files directory as well

    Per-machine installation
    msiexec /i <path_to_msi> /l*v <install_logfile_name> ALLUSER=1 ALLUSERS=1
    This process installs Teams to the Program Files (x86) folder on a 64-bit operating system and to the Program Files folder on a 32-bit operating system. At this point, the golden image setup is complete. Installing Teams per-machine is required for non-persistent setups.

    Hi @Karlie Weng ,

    The Teams data is not redirected to the FSLogix container. Is this needed and should in work how I installed it?

    What happens when a user install Teams in the appdata folder before I installed the machine wide installer?

    No error messages in Teams and in the event viewer.

    Hello Dlo-2139,

    It looks like this setup works also for us.
    But first we need to uninstall Teams with the users who installed it themselves.
