myViewBoard Whiteboard deployment
This article outlines the options users have when planning deployment of myViewBoard Whiteboard to remote devices.
myViewBoard Whiteboard MSI installation (Windows)
Within the Entity Management console, find a downloadable myViewBoard Windows MSI file at the bottom of the left-side navigation menu. Press the Download 64 bit link to download the file. Press Installation Instructions to review the information outlined on this page while in the console.
Command prompt to install myViewBoard Windows
As outlined in the Software Instances page, the Windows version of myViewBoard Whiteboard does not support enrollment within the application. The only way to enroll an instance is via Command Prompt installation of myViewBoard Whiteboard.
IT admin can use Command Prompt (as administrator). If you do not know how to run Command Prompt as an administrator, please view this website.
Review the following script details before installing.
Command prompt script and parameters
Execute the following to install to a device:
msiexec /qn /i "MSI_PATH" VIEWBOARDNAME="VIEWBOARD_NAME" PURPOSE="PURPOSE" ORGANIZATION="ORGANIZATION"
|Yes||Provide the folder path and the full file name.|
|Enter a nickname for this instance.||No||If no argument is set, a name will be auto assigned based on your OS device name.|
|PURPOSE||Education or Business||No||This applies the theme for Whiteboard. If not set, the default is Education (corresponding to the light theme). Can be changed by users after installation.|
|ORGANIZATION||Enter organization (entity) name.||Yes||If the organization is registered, the installer will automatically fill in the email address of the entity administrator, which cannot be modified. The instance will be linked to the myViewBoard entity and appear in the Entity Management console.|
|DOT_NET||Indicates whether to install .NET framework.||No||Supported in v18.104.22.168 and above. Set DOT_NET = FALSE if these components are already installed on a device. If no argument is set in such a case, installation errors may occur.|
|VC_RUNTIME||Indicates whether to install Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable packages.||No||Supported in v22.214.171.124 and above.|
The following is an outline of command prompt msiexec options:
- /qn - Specifies silent mode installation (no UI during installation).
- /i - Specifies normal installation, requiring a user to input settings manually.
- For further parameters, see the msiexec guide.
If you are uncertain how to execute MSI installation via Command Prompt, there is no other option for enrolling Whiteboard for Windows.
Deployment to Android devices
For ViewBoards, Whiteboard comes pre-installed and no extra deployment steps are necessary.
However, to automatically enroll instances to your entity, adding desired devices to Manager is required. Learn more about methods available to enroll installed instances on Android devices.
Deployment to Apple devices
For organizations with Apple devices, mobile device management (MDM) solutions are standard for managing apps on devices. Through the MDM, manage which devices in your organization have myViewBoard Whiteboard installed.
For instructions on enrolling your myViewBoard Whiteboard, see the Software Instances page.
