Installation

There are two installer file types available to install Task Mining Client App on your machine:

  • the task-mining-setup.exe used to install the Client App per-user
  • the task-mining-setup.msi used to install the Client App per-machine

📘

Note:

  • It is NOT supported to have both the .exe and .msi versions of Task Mining on the same machine.
  • The functionality of both installer types is the same.

Please find below a comparison between the two installer file types. This can help you decide what is the version that suits you.
