Most home and small business users run Mac or Windows using administrator accounts and with little or no firewall protection. That´s not the case with corporate corporate and business users where the "GoToMeeting Installer.exe" refuses to run in limited user accounts (LUA + SRP), with endpoint protection software and applicaton level firewall control. Is this software always supposed to be run in administrator accounts?
We have a few clients that send us some GoToMeeting links but the processs to run the executable that downloads other files and run them in a temporary directory makes it a pain (it was necessary to install a virtual machine running as administrator only to open a link but imagine doing that in larger company with hundreds of machines). Is there a solution to deploy a standalone global installation (ie. C:\Program Files\GoToMeeting) that will recognize the links (URI) or something else (a number like Teamviewer) with a defined firewall rule set?
Why in 2019 this type of application can´t be made to run online inside modern HTML5 browsers like Chrome, Quantum or Edge without requiring installation and messing with firewall rules ?
