I'm trying to enable the silent auto update feature without any luck so far. If I understand correctly, with EnableSilentAutoUpdate set to enable, Zoom should automatically update on launch. I've tried various combinations of settings and none of them work. This is my current command options - '/quiet /qn /norestart ZoomAutoUpdate=1 AlwaysCheckLatestVersion=1 EnableSilentAutoUpdate=1 MSIRESTARTMANAGERCONTROL=0 ZSSOHOST="XXXXXX.zoom.us" ZNoDesktopShortCut=true ZConfig="DisableLoginWithEmail=1;nogoogle=1;nofacebook=1;login_domain=XXXXX.edu;kCmdParam_InstallOption=9"'
Moving EnableSilentAutoUpdate to the zConfig section got me a little closer (see attachment) but, it's still not updating. Can you tell me if the update should take place immediately after starting zoom or will the user need to log in before it will update? I'm installing 188.8.131.524 so I assume that there should be a stable update available. My main test machine is a Hyper-V virtual machine. I've also tested on a physical machine with the same results. Although there are errors in the logs the installation completes with an exit code of zero.
As far as I know, the update will only happen when the app is restarted or the user clicks the Update button. This is one reason the update may not be occurring.
Another reason is that using the EnableSilentAutoUpdate will only update to the latest stable version, which seems to be set as 5.7.7 (as of this weekend). If the version you're currently on was above the set stable version (even though there are more recent versions available), it will not update the app until a new stable version is set or available.
I'd see if your test deployments update now that the stable version has been moved up to 5.7.7
For the automatic silent update to work, is the "enableupdate" registry string required? We have seen inconsistent results with a few test machines having just the "EnableSilentAutoUpdate"="1" and "SetUpdatingChannel"="0". We also have a few test machines that also have the enableupdate = 1 string added. We are hoping to not expose any of this configuration to the user.
