    NordLayer application for Windows in .msi format for deployment


      Article Summary

      The latest application version in .msi format can be obtained from here: https://downloads.nordlayer.com/win/releases/rss.xml

      Our app is designed to operate in 64-bit mode due to NordLynx's incompatibility with 32-bit systems. The commands mentioned must be executed with administrator rights. While installation without these rights is possible, it can lead to bugs and security vulnerabilities.

      Note

      The app will run in 64-bit mode on 64-bit versions of Windows, and in 32-bit mode on 32-bit versions, where NordLynx will not be available.

      Silent install using powershell or some third party deployment tools

      Run with Administrator (or System) rights:

      msiexec /i NordLayerSetup_vx.msi /q 
      

      Silent uninstall command with a unique Identifying number

      Run with Administrator (or System) rights:

      msiexec /x "{PRODUCT-CODE-OF-PREVIOUS-VERSION-A.B.C}" /q
      

      Replace {PRODUCT-CODE-OF-PREVIOUS-VERSION-A.B.C} with the actual product code of the software version you want to uninstall.

      Note that each version of the software has a different product code. For example, the product code for version 1.1.1 will not be the same as the code for version 1.1.2. Remember to update this code each time you upgrade to a new version.

      PowerShell script on uninstalling NordLayer

      $nordLayer = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product -Filter "Name = 'NordLayer'" | Select-Object IdentifyingNumber msiexec /x $nordLayer.IdentifyingNumber /q
      

      Manual PowerShell command to grab the Identifying Number

      Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product -Filter "Name = 'NordLayer'" | Format-Table IdentifyingNumber 
      
      Note

      If you're managing NordLayer for your team using centralized deployment software for Windows, make sure to disable the 'Auto-app update' feature for everyone via our Control Panel
