First Teams Call in a Teams Machine-Wide Install Causes Windows Defender Firewall Popup in WVD

Contributor

When a Teams user in WVD issues first time call, he is presented with the attached sample popup to allow access via the Inbound Firewall ports. According to MS document: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/get-clients the behavior is known issue. However, I was under the impression that a machine-wide install should not be putting teams in %Appdata% folder. 

 

Please advise.

Hi @blindpete , 

 

Thanks for the tip. I didnt know InTune can do that. That's great !

I still question why Teams machine-wide install is adding Teams.exe per user %appdata% ?

@MarkF26 To use Teams machine-wide installer you need to install it in a certain way - see here - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/teams-on-wvd The most important one is "msiexec /i <path_to_msi> /l*v <install_logfile_name> ALLUSER=1 ALLUSERS=1"  The ALLUSER command tells it to install the machine wide installer, and places it into C:\Program Files(x86) instead of APPDATA

Hi @Neil McLoughlin , 

 

Thanks for the reply. It took me a while to find time to uninstall Teams, and try the referenced KB. I first ran into a message that said "Cannot Install for all Users when a VDI environment is not detected". It turned out to be I needed the version of Team_windows_X64.msi with the Content Created @ 5/14/2020 (Version 1.3.0.13565) to make it work. 

 

Thank you so much.
