MS TEAMS deployment issues

Hello Ninjas

I probably should have started with microsoft forums but I wanted to start with you instead , you are more friendlier and responsive. 

Here is the problem. I reilized my kace script to deploy MS Team app , stopped working. I do not know what the problem is, 

Even after updating kace sma to 12.1 didn't help. 

I am using windows 10 pro 21H2 build # 19044.2006

I downloaded the machine wide installer version

I can see teams from "apps & features" window. However, when I sign in to windows, teams app won't automatically show up. Also when I search "team" in the start menu it is not there. 

any ideas? 

scripting and managed installations options have the same result as I described above.

Are you using a machine wide installer? What version of office are you using (ie. 365 pro plus....or...)? Can we see the script you are using?
Problem could be in a couple places and this info may help narrow it down.

yes I am using machine wide installer,

there is no ms office installed on the computers and they are using office 365

Here is the command (script) msiexec.exe /i teams_windows_x64.msi ALLUSERS=1 /quiet /norestart

I run this from cmd.exe (as admin) command runs without an error and I can see the ms team machine-wide installer exists in the apps list. 

However, it is not in the start menu nor auto starts when the user logs in.

  • I have had success with uploading the office installers as a zip (attach to a matching software record that existed) and using:
    msiexec /i Teams_windows_x64.msi OPTIONS="noAutoStart=true" ALLUSERS=1
    in a managed installation that I associated with that software record with the zip.

    I have also done this as a post installation task on SDA using only the teams installer or doing all of the o365 suite. I wonder, if the difference in syntax would make a difference? If it is on the machine, it may be installing for the admin running the task not the user you are logged in as (ignoring your args) and that is why it won't show up for them. Just taking a guess here. - Mashby1 4 days ago
