Install Windows Electron Client - Automated


I am looking for a way to install the Windows Client on user desktops in bulk. In an ideal world, I would like an msi, but a method to invoke and complete the installer (CMD or PowerShell) via CLI would be fine. Has anyone accomplished this?

  • No user interaction with installer (until they need to sign in)
  • Installs in Program Files, not user home directory.

Server Setup Information

  • Version of Rocket.Chat Server: 3.12
  • Operating System: CentOS 8
  • Deployment Method: Manual install from Guide
  • Number of Running Instances: 1
  • DB Replicaset Oplog:
  • NodeJS Version:
  • MongoDB Version:
  • Proxy: nginx + Microsoft Web Application Proxy
  • Firewalls involved: firewalld + Cisco (for external clients)

Any additional Information

How about Chocolatey?

I don’t have Chocolatey in my environment. I guess it’s worth looking into, but our current deployment/patch management is through Automox. Is there a way to do this that doesn’t involve migrating to a new patching/device management platform?
