And that's it! You are ready to install the Syncro Agent!
Steps to install Syncro onto a Device:
Now that you have everything ready, lets get started! First, head over to your "Customers" list in Syncro to find your customer.
Next, select the customer from the list to view their details. If you do not have the customer listed yet, please create one by following these instructions: https://help.syncromsp.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002529673-How-do-I-create-a-new-Customer-
Once you are here on the Customer Details Page, click “+New” to open up the drop down. Then select “Syncro Installer” to pull up the prompt to select an installer for this customer.
Once you select "Syncro Installer", you will be presented with a few installers for the device. Select the one you would like to use for the features and settings you would like for the device. You can learn more about these features and settings (also known as policies) here: https://help.syncromsp.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002555554-Policies-List
Now that you have selected an installer, the installer will be downloaded to your computer. You will now want to open the installer on the device you would like to install Syncro onto.
Using the install file to install Syncro:
Now that you have your installer all ready, you will want to open up the installer on the device with Administrator permissions. This will queue up the install, and name the asset after the computer name. You will receive a confirmation message like this once the install is completed:
Also, the device will now show up under the customer's assets here:
As well as in the assets list as a "Syncro Device" here:
You can uninstall a Syncro Agent by deleting the asset in Syncro. This will queue up a full uninstall on the device upon its next sync or reboot.
You can also uninstall Syncro just like you would uninstall any other program. Just head over to the Control Panel on the device and select "Add/Remove Programs" to uninstall Syncro and you should be all set! You will know the Syncro Agent is completely uninstalled when you see this confirmation message:
Also, if you are uninstalling to re-install, please make sure to reboot the device after the uninstall.
If you are ever having any trouble installing Syncro, you can always contact help@SyncroMSP.com and we will be happy to help! However, here are some troubleshooting tips to help you get up and running even faster.
1) When installing Syncro on the device, please make sure to run the installer as an Admin.
2) If you ever wish to reinstall Syncro, please reboot the device after uninstalling before trying to reinstall Syncro.
3) It is always a good idea to try downloading a new, fresh installer from the Customer Details page to ensure your installer is up to date.
