Installation Guide for WorkDrive Sync in Windows

WorkDrive Sync - Silent Installation for Enterprise users in Windows

WorkDrive Sync can be remotely deployed to multiple PCs of the Windows network in an organization at once silently. System admin in an organization can run the installer remotely with a managed-software solution or deployment mechanism.

For individual Windows users, you can find the installation guide here.

Silent Installation / Reinstallation / Upgrade:

Use this command:   msiexec.exe /i "<path_to_installer_file>" /quiet

If the full path of the installer file is "C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\ZohoWorkDrive.msi", then the command is
msiexec.exe /i "C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\ZohoWorkDrive.msi" /quiet

Silent Uninstallation:

Use this command:  msiexec.exe /x "<path_to_installer_file>" /quiet

If the full path of the installer file is "C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\ZohoWorkDrive.msi", then the command is
msiexec.exe /x "C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\ZohoWorkDrive.msi" /quiet

  1. WorkDrive Sync installer performs a per-user installation. It will install under the user's profile (C:\Users<Username>\AppData\Roaming\ZohoWorkDrive). Make sure to deploy the application using "Run as Admin or User" mode instead of "Run as System".
  2. Administrator privilege is required to install all features of WorkDrive Sync. Hence if it is installed without Administrator privilege, then WorkDrive Sync will work, but overlay status icons and context menu items will not be visible inside sync folder in File Explorer.

We recommend the WorkDrive Sync installer for single-user machines. If there are multiple users on the machine, we recommend WorkDrive TrueSync installer as it performs a per-machine installation. It will be installed under Program Files folder.
