iPhone and iPad

The StarLeaf app automatically detects the language settings of the device you are using (mobile or desktop) and applies the same language in the app. For example, if your iPhone language is set to French, the mobile StarLeaf app will set its language to French. If you change the language on your device, the app language will also change.
To view the languages StarLeaf is currently available in, go to Localization of StarLeaf endpoints, apps, and Portal.
StarLeaf is constantly working to provide more localization options but if your device’s language is not yet available, the default language in the app will be English (US).
The language settings in the StarLeaf app are not affected by any changes made in StarLeaf Portal.
Mass-deploying StarLeaf with the MSI installer
StarLeaf provides an MSI installer, to mass-deploy StarLeaf for Windows to multiple end-users.
To install the MSI, run the following command as admin:
msiexec /i StarLeaf-Installer-Windows.msi
Upgrades are carried out automatically by StarLeaf; there is no management overhead for the local users.
Windows firewall behavior when using the MSI installer
The StarLeaf MSI installer provides a machine-wide installation under the Windows Program Files directory. When a user logs in and launches StarLeaf, individual user settings are stored in files in the user’s local AppData folder. These include authentication tokens and preferred audio and video device.
When the app is run for the first time following an installation using the MSI installer, the user may see a Windows firewall prompt. To avoid this firewall prompt, we recommend that the admin configures the Windows firewall to allow StarLeaf connections. As an example, this can be achieved by adding the following PowerShell script to Startup:
