Desktop App Deployment

Benefits of Desktop App vs. Web Vault The Desktop App has a few more capabilities than the Keeper Web Vault such as:

  • Ability to Autofill native apps using KeeperFill for Apps functionality

  • Ability to automatically import existing passwords without additional component installation

  • Offline access

  • Increased performance

Microsoft Windows .MSI file download vs .EXE file download:

  • .MSI is for multi-user enviroments - supports multi-user or shared physical environments. This allows each user on a shared computer to have their own vault.

  • .EXE is for single user environments - one install per computer. Only one vault may be used per physical environment.

  • .EXE auto-updates, where .MSI does not.

.EXE installs to:

  • User preferences is stored in C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Keeper Password Manager\

  • The application binary is installed to C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\keeperpasswordmanager\

.MSI installs to:

  • C:\Program Files\keeperpasswordmanager\

Microsoft Store for Business - Offline Deployment https://businessstore.microsoft.com/

Keeper Microsoft Store applications can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store for Business for offline deployment. A Microsoft account is required to log in. If the email address used is for an Azure domain the account must be authorized to access the store or be the primary admin on the Azure account.

Once logged in to the Microsoft Store for Business settings need to be changed in order to display offline downloads for an application. Select Manage from the top bar…

Then select Settings from the left pane…

Enable showing offline files under Shopping Experience. This will then show a drop down option for each application in the store when the application is enabled for offline deployment.

Search for Keeper in the store. Select the Keeper Security application desired. A drop down menu will display titled License Type. The default selection will say Online. Change the drop down to the Offline option and select the Manage button.

The app will display with options to download…

Select the highest minimum version supported by the platforms where the deployment is intended. Select the Architecture and Language. The Download button next to Language will download a metadata file. This may be helpful for some deployment methodologies. Once the Minimum Version and language have been selected scroll down to the Package details section.

Download the package and the license file. Scroll past the License file section and download any Framework packages available for the application. For the Keeper Edge Extension no Frameworks are required. For the Keeper Password Manager several Frameworks files are required. The application package does not include dependencies and cannot be deployed alone if Frameworks are required. Once the meta-data, package, framework and license files are downloaded they can be deployed through SCCM Manager. This msdn blog post provides an example of how to create the application for deployment… https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/teju_shyamsundar/2016/05/30/deploy-an-application-from-windows-store-for-business-via-system-center-configuration-manager/

Mobile App Deployment

Keeper for mobile and tablet devices can be deployed through the public-facing app stores. MDM solutions can also push these applications to end-user devices without any special requirements. When the users register or sign into an account, Enterprise enforcement policies are automatically applied.
