    b. Paste the copied Client Token at the following:

  7. Once the Loginless installation is configured, this parameter is stored in the Windows registry. The Poly Lens Desktop application will use this token on startup and logs in the user to the correct Account.

Poly Lens Desktop Super User and Machine-Wide Installations

By default the Poly Lens Desktop App only installs under a User profile. To enable a Machine-Wide Installation, see the following:

msiexec /i "<poly_lens_client_msi>" /l*v log.log /q ALLUSERS=1 TENANTTOKEN=<tenant_token> Loggin enabled<br />

msiexec /i "<poly_lens_client_msi>" /q ALLUSERS=1 TENANTTOKEN=<tenant_token>

Note: For more information about the ALLUSERS parameter, please see Microsoft Documentation.

Auto Accept EULA Feature

By default, Poly Lens Desktop with Loginless does not prompt end-users to accept the Poly End User License Agreement (EULA). Admins accept the EULA on behalf of their end-users when first creating a Client Token.

If your organization requires that end-users accept the EULA, add the additional parameter ACCEPTEULA=1.

This parameter tells the Poly Lens Desktop App to start with the Accept the EULA page before opening the app.
