MSIX

Full Functional
The app has been packaged in MSIX using the Microsoft MSIX Packaging Tool 1.2022.512 with using TMEditX to inject the PSF. The Launcher and FileRedirectionFixup are required. First launch of the app by the user was slow. Subsequent launches seem fine. No account was available to test, so UAT testing is really needed to confirm this result.

Repackaging Tips

Note 1: There are two versions of the MSI, with and without autoupdates.

Note 2: The vendor has a free version available in the Microsoft Store. The vendor clearly states in their online documentation that this is not fully featured. The file is an AppXBundle file, however the packages are actually MSIX. See App Restrictions on vendor page: https://help.miro.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017572854-Desktop-app

Note 3: The MSI seems to install an x86 version.

EXE Install

The exe installer appears to have no command line arguments. It installs itself passively. This install will go into the user's AppData\Local\RealTimeBoard folder.

MSI Install

This installer will install itself into the Program Files (x86) folder, but what it installs appears to be a per-user installer that is different than the EXE installer also provided by the vendor. It adds an entry into the Windows registry "Run" key as a way to run that installer upon user logon with this command:
"C:\Program Files\Miro Installer\RealtimeBoard.exe" --checkInstall

The vendor website indicates that this command checks to see if the Mira Desktop app is installed (we think by looking for the files), and then installs Mira Desktop into the user's AppDataLocal folder. If the MSI version is selected with updates we suspect that the Miro Installer also performs that check.

Also note that the Miro Installer program will return immediately and perform the installation of Mira Desktop in the background, so any installation scripting may want to sleep a few minutes to let that complete.

The application installs into program files.
There is one shortcut.
There are no FTA, shell extensions, protocol handlers, or services.
