Windows 10/11 Appinstaller


Confirm that your Windows installation can use Appinstaller files.

The Appinstaller file checks for updates each time the app is run, and installs the app if an update is found. Please ensure that your Windows installation can use Appinstaller files. Restrictions or blocks on Appinstallers are not supported.

Downloading TelemetryTV via the Windows App Store

TelemetryTV also has a Windows 10 App available on the Windows app store. This application allows you to turn any compatible Windows computer in to a digital signage player.

Setting Up TelemetryTV on Windows

There are multiple ways to configure applications on Windows. Advanced users can follow the guide from Microsoft on setting up a single app kiosk. Please note that we cannot provide support for this method, and you are responsible for updating the app as changes occur.

Follow these steps to setup TelemetryTV on your Windows device:

  1. Ensure the Latest Windows 10

    You need the Fall 2018 release of Windows 10 or later to use TelemetryTV (build version 1809).
    To check your version: Check your version at Start > Settings > System > About, under "Windows specifications".

If you're out of date, we've found that the best way to get to the Fall 2018 release of Windows 10 is to download and run the Windows Update Assistant.

  1. Set Up a New User Account and Auto-Login

Although not required, recommend creating a non-admin user account and turning on auto-login for a seamless Telemetry boot after a restart. Set Windows to automatically log in to an account and configure the TelemetryTV In the start menu, by searching for 'netplwiz' and run the command

Select "Add"

  • Select "Sign in without a Microsoft account"
  • Choose "Local account"
  • Enter a name for the new account.

  • Hit finish, then set we'll enable auto-login.
  • Uncheck the check box that says "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer", then hit ok.
  • Enter the information for your newly created account, then hit ok.
  • This new user will now automatically login every time Windows boots up!
  1. Install the TelemetryTV App

Log in as your newly created user and download the TelemetryTV app using the steps outlined under "Downloading TelemetryTV via the Media Player AppInstaller" or "Downloading TelemetryTV via the Windows App Store"

  1. Provision Your Device to Your TelemetryTV Account

Optionally,~~ provision your device ~~to automatically with a provisioning token from your TelemetryTV account. This is recommended for deploying devices at scale.

  1. Pair Your Device to Your TelemetryTV Account

After running the TelemetryTV media player, a pairing code will appear. In the TelemetryTV web app, navigate to the "Devices" page, click "Pair", and enter the pairing code.

Managing Updates in Windows 10

We recommend not pausing updates for long periods to ensure you receive important updates. If updates might disrupt your digital signage viewing experience, consider pausing updates for a reasonable time (e.g., a month), and setting updates to occur after hours to minimize disruption.

Video Walls

To deploy a video wall on Windows 10/11 with TelemetryTV, you'll need hardware and drivers that support combining all the displays into a single display. We recommend AMD's Eyefinity and Intel's Collage drivers, both of which have been tested with TelemetryTV.

Read Intel's instructions on enabling Collage Display for video walls.

App Updates

Remember, to ensure smooth and continuous operation, it is essential to keep the app updated. Outdated versions may encounter performance issues.
