About Application Downloads
You can mass-deploy CWMS applications by using the tools available to you on the Administration site. The applications available for download include are:
WebEx Meetings Application—The core application for scheduling, attending, or hosting meetings.
Running the WebEx Meetings application on a virtualized operating system is not supported.
If a user does not have the WebEx Meetings application installed, the first time a user joins a meeting it is downloaded to the PC. This can be configured to be done on-demand or silently. The user has the option of using the Cisco WebEx Meetings application for the duration of the meeting and having it removed when the meeting is over or performing an installation of the application to speed up the process of starting or joining future meetings. This might fail because the user does not have administrator privileges.
WebEx Productivity Tools—Provides an interface between other applications, such as Microsoft™ Outlook®, allowing the management of meetings through those applications.
After an update or upgrade to a system, any old versions of WebEx Productivity Tools should be removed and the latest version installed.
WebEx Network Recording Player—Plays back the recordings of meetings. This can include any material displayed during the meeting.
In CWMS the .MSI installer for the applications is available from thepage. See "Downloading Applications from the Administration Site" in the CWMS Planning Guide for more information.
We recommend that you push the applications to user computers offline, before you inform those end-users that accounts have been created for them. This ensures that your users can start and join meetings and play network recordings the first time they sign in.
Where users have administrator privileges, you can enable users to download the applications from the end-user Downloads page and install the applications themselves. No additional administrator action is required.
When upgrading to Cisco WebEx Meetings Server Release 1.5MR3 or later in a locked-down environment where user PCs do not have administrator privileges, before you start the upgrade procedure push the new version of the WebEx Meetings application to all user PCs.
