Deploying browser plugins to multiple users

You can deploy the browser plugins to multiple users on Windows as long as they're using Internet Explorer or Firefox. Chrome and Safari are not supported.

You need to download the Windows installer file. Also, this mass deployment requires .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 or .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile. For large scale enterprise deployments, you can use tools, such as Microsoft Group Policy or Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager.

To perform a silent installation of the client, type the following operation in a Command window while logged in as an admin:

msiexec.exe /i "JiveAnywhere.msi" /qn SERVERURL="" ADDLOCAL=IE,FIREFOX
  • ADDLOCAL: Specifies which browsers you want to install passing parameters using the ADDLOCAL argument. Removing ADDLOCAL installs Jive Anywhere on any Internet Explorer or Firefox browser by default.
  • SERVERURL: Sets the desired Jive instance.
