    Hi All,
    A little documentation for V11.SP4 for Desktop components for those of you, like me, who push these out using Group Policy. This documentation may be available elsewhere, but I am yet to find it on the 3CX site. So:

    The new SP4 needs to upgrade the Desktop Components. This is indicated by a flashing yellow icon on the top right of the 3CX MyPhone plugin. Clicking on the Yellow icon will open the Desktop Components, already downloaded to the local machine.


    • Create a Directory for your msi(s) to be stored. e.g. c:\temp
      Open a cmd prompt and execute the 3cx Desktop components with the extract flag. e.g. 3CXMyPhoneDesktopComponents.exe /extract:C:\temp
      The system will unpack the files for x86 and x64 into the same directory, with a MST and the vstor components if you need them.
      Copy the msi's, data cab and mst to your network share and setup the GPO deployment as usual.
      in your temporary folder run the command:

      msiexec /a 3CXMyPhoneDesktopComponents11.0.28976.849.x64.msi TRANSFORMS=3CXMyPhoneDesktopComponents11.0.28976.849.mst

      and

      msiexec /a 3CXMyPhoneDesktopComponents11.0.28976.849.msi TRANSFORMS=3CXMyPhoneDesktopComponents11.0.28976.849.mst

      This will then build the msi for deployment and will ask you to save that msi somewhere on your network. Probably your deployment share.


    This is what I have done, unfortunately the msi is in-valid and GPO will not deploy it. Any help would be appreciated in obtaining the MSI for GPO deployment.

    Thanks

    Craig

    Thanks Tom,
    The guide is perfect if you have the msi. Unfortunately the msi is not available on that page. The link on that page is for the v11.SP1 msi.

    SO the need is a manner of extracting a workable msi, or for 3CX to supply a workable msi.

    @craigray

    The links on the page in question are in fact for SP4, and the filenames actually indicate this.
