Mass-deploying with preconfigured settings for Windows

Last Updated:

The Zoom desktop client can be installed and configured in bulk for Windows in three different ways: via the MSI installer for both configuration and installation, an Active Directory administrative template utilizing Group Policy for configuration, or via registry keys for configuration.

Zoom Rooms for Windows can also be configured with an Active Directory administrative template utilizing Group Policy or registry keys.

If utilizing the MSI installer, Zoom can be deployed via GPO or SCCM. If installing the client via GPO script, install using a startup script for the desktop client. If you also want to deploy the Outlook plugin via GPO script, install using a logon script.

Installing with an Active Directory Administrative Template or registry keys, administrators can lock certain features and settings upon deployment of Zoom. 

The desktop client can be enrolled in and managed through Zoom Device Management, which allows you to centrally control desktop client and mobile app settings in the Zoom web portal. 

Notes:

  • MSI installations require elevated administrative rights. 
  • The VDI Host Installer is an MSI file type that can use the same switches as the standard client MSI installer. It can be deployed through normal software and device management tools. The VDI Client will respond to the same MSI configuration as the non-VDI client and can be configured accordingly. 

This article covers:

Learn to install Zoom with preconfigured settings for macOS, for Android devices, and for iOS devices. You can also use Zoom’s own Device Management platform to centrally configure desktop client and mobile app settings.

Prerequisites for using the IT admin installer

  • MSI version of the Windows desktop client

Note: Some of the switches listed below require the latest version of the Zoom IT Installer.

How to download the desktop client MSI installer

  1. Go to the Zoom Download Center
  2. Click on Download for IT Admin, and then click one of the following links under the Zoom Client for Meetings section:
    • Download MSI: Download the latest 32-bit version of the MSI installer.
    • Download 64-bit Client: Download the latest 64-bit version of the MSI installer.
    • Download ARM Client: Download the latest version of the MSI installer for ARM devices

Priority of settings

Settings can be configured in multiple places. Some can only be configured by the Zoom Admin or IT Admin and some can be configured by the end user. If settings conflict, Zoom will use the following priority:

  1. Settings deployed and locked through ZDM.
  2. Setting deployed via MSI/GPO with zConfig.
  3. Web setting locked at the Account- or Group-level settings.
  4. Client setting selected by the user.
  5. Setting deployed via MSI/GPO with zRecommend.
  6. Web setting that are not locked.

How to deploy and configure the Zoom desktop client

Command-line deployment options

The following options are configured as part of the main command-line deployment of the desktop client. A basic install configuration is provided below, and each option afterwards is bolded in each corresponding example.

For other common installation options, please refer to the Microsoft article for MSI installations.

Note: Registry entries for the following settings will be located in the following locations:

  • 32-bit version: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\ZoomUMX\
  • 64-bit version: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ZoomUMX\
MSI option Description Deployment example Value type
Basic Install Standard command-line install example msiexec /package ZoomInstallerFull.msi /lex zoommsi.log -
Silent install Installs the client without user interaction, any install windows, or immediate restart msiexec /i ZoomInstallerFull.msi /quiet /qn /norestart /log install.log -
Wait until the in-progress meeting is over before installing Disables interaction of the package with the Restart Manager, prevents an immediate restart, and hides all UI of the process. msiexec /i ZoomInstallerFull.msi /qn /norestart MSIRestartManagerControl=0 Boolean
zNoDesktopShortCut Prevent the creation of a desktop shortcut on install or update. msiexec /package ZoomInstallerFull.msi /lex zoommsi.log zNoDesktopShortCut=0 Boolean
zSilentStart

Automatically start client in the system tray after reboot.

msiexec /package ZoomInstallerFull.msi /lex zoommsi.log zSilentStart=1 Boolean
zSSOHost Disabled by default, this option allows you to preconfigure the SSO URL. msiexec /package ZoomInstallerFull.msi /lex zoommsi.log zSSOHost="vanity_URL" String
ZoomAutoUpdate

Disabled by default, this will remove the Check for Updates option in the client and thus not allow users to check for and install updates for the Zoom client. If Auto-update is enabled, users will be able to check for updates in the client and will not require elevated admin rights to update.
Please refer to AutoUpdate note for important details.

msiexec /package ZoomInstallerFull. msi /lex zoommsi.log ZoomAutoUpdate=1

Boolean

DisableAdvancedSharingService

Enabled by default, this option can disable this service, which can prevent prompting for admin credentials during upgrading. If this service is disabled, the auto-updating experience may be affected slightly.

msiexec /package ZoomInstallerFull.msi /lex zoommsi.logb DisableAdvancedSharingService=1

Boolean

FirewallPortStart
FirewallPortEnd

Set the inbound and outbound firewall rules for the Zoom client. Note: FirewallPortStart and FirewallPortEnd need to be configured together, as Zoom does not recommend enabling one without enabling the other.

msiexec /package ZoomInstallerFull.msi /lex zoommsi.log FirewallPortStart="7200" FirewallPortEnd="17210"

String

AllowDowngrade

By default, MSI installations* will not allow a lower version to be installed over the existing installation. This option allows this restriction to be bypassed. 
*Note: This only applies to MSI installs. 

msiexec /i ZoomInstallerFull.msi AllowDowngrade=1

Boolean

Important notes regarding AutoUpdate

The EnableSilentAutoUpdate or AlwaysCheckLatestVersion options are no longer supported. 

Managing Auto Update on versions between 5.8.6 and 5.10.1 should be done with the ZoomAutoUpdate and SetUpdatingChannel option below. This allows for automatic download and installation of updates, based on Slow and Fast release cadences, to best suit your needs. 

For versions 5.10.3 and higher, refer to the Enterprise Auto Update policies

Additional Configuration Options

The following options must be included and configured within one of the following parameters:

  • zConfig: To set and require specific configurations, append the zConfig parameter to the end of your install choice.
    • msiexec /package ZoomInstaller.msi /norestart /lex msi.log ZConfig="account=your_account_id;nogoogle=1;nofacebook=1”
  • zRecommend: To set specific configurations as the default, but allow users to change them within the Zoom desktop client, deploy with zRecommend.
    • msiexec /i ZoomInstallerFull.msi ZRecommend="AudioAutoAdjust=1"

Multiple options can be configured in either, with each option and its corresponding value being separated from the next by a semicolon (;).

If you want to force certain settings, but allow users to change other settings you’ve set as default, use both zConfig and zRecommend. For example, this install configuration 

  • msiexec /i ZoomInstallerFull.msi zConfig="nogoogle=1" zRecommend="AudioAutoAdjust=1" 

disables the Google login method entirely on the client, while Auto-adjust audio is defaulted to “auto”, but can be disabled and manually set by the user.

Note: If a setting has been set in both zConfig and zRecommend, zConfig will take priority and lock the setting, which cannot be changed by the user. Refer to the Priority of Settings section to understand how other conflicting settings are resolved.

Uninstall switches

To uninstall Zoom completely, please use the following Clean Zoom uninstaller. It is generally not necessary to use the clean uninstaller when updating to a new version of Zoom, as deploying the new version will replace the former.

The following switches are available when running the installer:

MSI option Description
/silent Removes Zoom silently.
/keep_outlook_plugin Removes Zoom, but leaves the Outlook Plugin installed.
/keep_lync_plugin Removes Zoom, but leaves the Lync/Skype for Business Plugin installed.
/keep_notes_plugin Removes Zoom, but leaves the Notes Plugin installed.
/vdi_clean

Removes the the following Zoom VDI client and plugins:

  • VDI client 
  • Citrix Workspace, AVD, Vmware Horizon, and  Universal Plugin
  • VDI Plugin Auto-Update

By default, this will also remove Outlook, Lync and Notes plugins, but this can be prevented by using the options above to keep them in place. 

Note: Use of the clean uninstaller will completely remove the Zoom client, as well as the Zoom plugin for Outlook. The Outlook add-in, Chrome/Firefox extensions, and GSuite add-on are unaffected.
