For manual deployment to institution owned machines please review Managed Deployment of AppsAnywhere Client and Cloudpaging Player.
Please note: DisablePreDeploy does not prevent user initiated installations. If a user visits AppsAnywhere and does not have the minimum client versions as specified in Client Settings, they will still be installed or updated. It is therefore advisable to update managed clients before setting new minimum versions.
For automatic updates on BYOD via the AppsAnywhere Client, under Admin > Client Settings, set the current and minimum versions for AppsAnywhere Client and Cloudpaging Player to the latest release.
