Deploying applications

Overview

OpenFin permits instant distribution by eliminating the long security reviews and post-release issues typically associated with traditional desktop software deployment. The way an OpenFin application gets deployed on a desktop is largely determined by the Desktop Owner. There are two installers that OpenFin offers to seamlessly deploy applications to a users desktop:

Best Practice

It is recommended to use the OpenFin Installer to deploy applications as it includes the RVM which auto-updates, retrieves the application configuration file, automatically downloads the required Runtime version, and installs the desktop/Start menu shortcuts. This ensures that your application(s) will work to the fullest capacity with OpenFin. To learn more about the RVM, see Runtime Version Manager
