Downloading and Mass Deploying Applications

Downloading and Mass Deploying Applications

Use of this product requires additional applications that must be downloaded to your users' computers. You can download and mass deploy these applications using tools available to you on the Administration site. These applications include the following:

  • Cisco WebEx Meetings (Windows and Mac)
  • Cisco WebEx Productivity Tools (Windows)
  • Cisco WebEx Network Recording Player (Windows and Mac)

To get these applications installed on your users' computers, you can use the Administration site to configure automatic downloads, enable users to download the applications themselves, push applications to your users' computers, or download the installation files and manually install them on your users' computers.

This product can be used on computers whose users have administrator privileges and on those that do not. Automatic downloads, user-enabled download and installation, and pushing applications to your users' computers works when your users have administrator privileges. If your company does not give your users administrator privileges then you must use an alternative approach to install the applications on their computers.

On PCs with administrator privileges:
  • Users can download and install the Cisco WebEx Meetings application, Productivity Tools, and Network Recording Player from the end-user download pages. No additional administrator action is required.
  • Users are advised to install the Productivity Tools the first time they sign in.
  • The Cisco WebEx Meetings application is downloaded on-demand the first time a user joins a meeting and is installed silently on the user's PC.

On PCs without administrator privileges:

  • We recommend that you push the Cisco WebEx Meetings application and Productivity Tools to end-user desktops offline before you inform end-users that user accounts have been created for them. This ensures that your users can start and join meetings from their web browsers and Windows desktops the first time they sign in.
  • You can acquire the .MSI installers for each from the Admin > Settings > Downloads page. See Configuring Your Download Settings for more information.
  • If you decide against pushing the applications to your users, they can still access these applications from the end-user download pages. However, if their PCs prohibit installation of downloaded applications, they will not be able to complete the installation process.
  • When users join meetings by using their web browser (the Cisco WebEx Meetings application can still be downloaded on demand) they can join meetings successfully. In addition, the Cisco WebEx Meetings application attempts to perform an installation to speed up the process of starting or joining future meetings. This fails because their PCs do not have administrator privileges.

Downloading Applications from the Administration Site

You can configure your system so that administrators can manually download Cisco WebEx desktop applications to users or you can enable users to perform their own downloads.

Procedure
    Step 1   Sign in to the Administration site.
    Step 2   Select Settings > Downloads.
    Step 3   Select the Auto update WebEx Productivity Tools check box to configure periodic automatic updates. (Default: checked.)
    Step 4   Select your download method:
    • Permit users to download WebEx desktop applications
    • Manually push WebEx desktop applications to user's desktop

    If you select Permit users to download WebEx desktop applications, you can select Save to finish your Download configuration. No further action is necessary. If you select Manually push WebEx desktop applications to user’s desktop, proceed to the next step.

    Use the Manually push WebEx desktop applications to user’s desktop option to enable conferencing for users who do not have administrator permissions.

    If you select Manually push WebEx desktop applications to user’s desktop, the Cisco WebEx Meetings, Productivity Tools, and Network Recording Player sections appear on the page.

    Step 5   In the WebEx Meetings section select Download and then select Save to save the ZIP file to your system.

    The ZIP file contains installers for both Windows and Mac platforms in all available languages. After you open the ZIP file, select the installer for your platform and language. The installer for Windows systems is an MSI file. The installer for Mac systems is a DMG file.

    Step 6   In the Productivity Tools section, select Download and then select Save to save the ZIP file to your system.

    The ZIP file contains installers for all available languages. After you open the ZIP file, select the installer for your language. The installer is an MSI file.

    Step 7   In the WebEx Network Recording Player section select Download and then select Save to save the ZIP file to your system.

    The ZIP file contains installers for both Windows and Mac platforms in all available languages. After you open the ZIP file, select the installer for your platform and language. The installer for Windows systems is an MSI file. The installer for Mac systems is a DMG file.

    Step 8   Select Save to save your download settings.

    What to Do Next

    Unzip the MSI or DMG files and deploys these clients to end-user desktops with the mass deployment software used by your enterprise. This ensures that the clients are ready for operation when the user attempts to schedule or join meetings or view recordings. For more information on deploying the clients in Windows environments, refer to the following sections:

    Each ZIP file contains the application installer for all 13 supported languages. See Contents of the Application ZIP Files for information on determining which installer to use in each ZIP file.

    Contents of the Application ZIP Files

    This section describes the installer applications contained in each of the ZIP files that you download from the Administration site. The ZIP files contain one installer application per language. This section also provides a key to help you determine the language of each installer. Windows installer applications are provided in 13 languages. Mac installer applications are only provided in English.

    Application Language Key

    The English application installer file in each ZIP file is titled without a language suffix. For example, the WebEx Meetings client is titled onpremmc.msi (Windows) and webexmc_onprem.dmg (Mac).
