This seems like a useful application to add as it becomes more used for remote work. It is already a part of the home updater software.

    Hi Admin,

    Could you please check the detection rule in attachment? Maybe this is something we could use too.

    Hello Ronak,

    The limitation for AnyDesk MSI is related to both the vendor (they use the same product code with each release) and Patch My PC (our detection script only checks for the product code for MSIs, and if found, it will mark the app as detected, it does not do additional checks).
    For the limitation from the PMPC side of things, it has been raised internally an improvement request for the detection script.
    This is why this ideas has been marked as a "Future consideration".

    Dear Admin,

    Thank you for your response!

    We have had one of your competitors in POC and they support AnyDesk.

    Could you please double check, how that is possible? Does one need any special "contract" with Anydesk for this?

    Thanks, Ronak

    Hi everyone,

    I am the bearer of bad news, unfortunately. As things stand, we cannot support this app, neither the MSI, nor the EXE.

    For the EXE, for the "--install" argument, the vendor requires the path to be specified. Every customer might have it installed in different folders, especially if manually installed by the user, so we cannot specify a path of our own.

    For the MSI, the vendor goes with the same product code with every version. That is unfortunate, because the product code is what we check for the detection method.

    This idea will be marked as future consideration, in case things will change.

    Thank you everyone for your contribution!
    We have the older versions that we need to test the upgrade.
    We will try to add this to the catalog this week.

    Thank you, I already receive an older version of the EXE installer.

    Does anyone have an older version of the MSI installer?

    Does anyone have an older version of AnyDesk EXE and MSI to offer?
    We would like to add this to the catalog, but we need to test the upgrade process first.
    If someone has them, please upload them here:
    Just name the zip file: AnyDesk_Installers_forLiviu

    The Application is quite important for us. We just bought a subscription a couple of days ago. If this will not be added, we will unfortunately use the right to give back the product within 180 days.
