As I could see there are different versions of the machine-wide installer.

 

I know that the Teams Client is a self-updating application. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-client-update)

 

But how about the Teams Machine-Wide Installer, is there a need to update the Installer regularly?

If I download for example today the Teams Machine-Wide Installer and If I install it today, I have an Teams Machine-Wide Installer in Version 1.3.0.12058. 

 

If I download the Teams Machine-Wide Installer again 3 months later from https://teams.microsoft.com/downloads/desktopurl?env=production&plat=windows&arch=x64&managedInstall...

I have downloaded another / newer version. If I run the installer 3 months later again on the same computer, I have two Installations of the Machine-Wide Installer. (see Screenshot)

 

Is there a need to update the Teams Machine-Wide Installer regularly?
