User and machine installers
There are two types of MSI installers: MSI that installs per-user, and MSI that installs per-machine.
- No auto-updates: When the app is installed via the MSI installer, the auto-update is disabled. IT administrators need to periodically deploy newer versions of the MSI to keep the app up to date.
- No tel: links handling: When the app is installed via the MSI installer, it is not registering itself as a handler for tel: links.
- Uninstall does not auto-terminate the running app: If the app is installed via MSI, uninstalling the MSI will not automatically terminate the app if it is running during the uninstallation. The MSI uninstall will prompt to close the running app but it will not do so, and it will ask to reboot the system at the end.
