    This is not really an autoupdate-package...

    It is not updating existing installations. How can I manage this?

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-for-vdi#install-or-update-the-teams-desktop-app-on-vdi

    "With per-machine installation, automatic updates is disabled. This means that to update the Teams app, you must uninstall the current version to update to a newer version."

    Can't you update it to a working package? Maybe uninstall/reinstall?

    Have the same issue.

    Teams Machine Wide installer is version 1.3.0.362

    And the MS Teams installer just check for this and then abort the installation / update.

    So my Teams are never updated.

    Ok. I fixed it myself.

    I created a Pre-Step in Microsoft Teams Auto-Package... that will run "Uninstall Microsoft Teams" only if "member of" "Microsoft Teams Machine-Wide (Old)"

    Can you explain it please?


    Does your Pre-Step uninstall the machine-wide installer or the per-user Teams for all users?


    The per-user installed Teams (distributed per machine-wide installer) should auto-update - but it doesn't. "28 days remaining is shown"

    Can you explain specifically what you're doing with your pre-step?

    Yes, of course.

    I do an "Uninstall Microsoft Teams 1.0" with a condition that it needs to be in the collection: Microsoft Teams Machine-Wide (old).

    So the only issue I have now, is that the Powershell will return 1 "Fails" if the Machine-Wide is allready present and in the correct version. In my opinon, that should make it quit with success.
