Is there a PDQ Deploy variable which can be used in an install step to point towards the latest version of an app, as downloaded by an Auto Deployment package?
We're currently having an issue with Teams where even if we use the Uninstall Teams package before installing the updated Teams package, Teams does not get updated correctly.
We found a way to solve this but it requires some custom logic, specifically we have to do an msiexec.exe /fv "Teams_windows_x64.msi" followed by an msiexec.exe /f "Teams_windows_x64.msi" after installing the updated Teams package, in order to update the target machine's MSI cache. (as suggested by this thread https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/257211/upgrading-teams-machine-wide-installer.html)
We'd like to be able to automate this - after all, PDQ Deploy itself is already automatically downloading the latest MSI - but the folder it downloads to has the version number in the folder name, so it changes every time.
Can anyone suggest a way to do this that doesn't involve us having to manually download the MSI every time it changes?
