Important: If you are trying to deploy UNIVERGE BLUE™ CONNECT to multiple workstations, see our mass deployment best practices.

This article describes the process of Desktop app installation on Windows. Supported versions are:

  • Windows 7 and later versions (earlier versions do not support Electron apps)
  • 64-bit (32-bit versions are not supported)

Note: spellcheck feature is not supported on Windows 7.

Per-user vs Admin-rights installation

  • The desktop app generally does not require admin rights for either the initial install or subsequent updates
  • The UNIVERGE BLUE™ CONNECT Outlook integration installation requires admin rights
  • We recommend installing the desktop app as a per-user installation without admin rights, and using GP or other remote deployment tools to deploy the UNIVERGE BLUE™ CONNECT Outlook plugin integration bits.
