Hey all, we pushed the WVD client via intune in the user context but today when users received notification that a client update was available, they were prompted for credentials to update. 

 

Checking the install it was installed to program files. It was my understanding that it should have been deployed to the users profile with the below settings. 

 

Any help greatly appreciated 

 

Deployment setting

Hi @Jonny5 , did you follow the installation options guidance to deploy the MSI per-user instead of per-device?

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/windowsdeskto...

 

Hope this helps,

David

@David Belanger Importing the official MSI to Intune, and using the following recommended arguments, still installs the client to "C:\Program Files\Remote Desktop\msrdcw.exe", forcing the users to elevate to admin to be able to update it.

We had to wrap it into a scriptbased installation and run it in user context to be able to install as the logged on User.

Anyone else had issues with this, or a better way of installing it as user?

I have the same issue with Intune deployment. I've also tried wrapping it as a win32 app, but that still doesn't work. This glitch makes updates very disruptive to users. @Ola Holtberget
