Slido for Windows requires at least .NET Framework 4.6.2, and it is fully supported to run on .NET Framework 4.8.
We support Microsoft Office for desktop in the Click-to-Run edition. The special editions installed in Windows Store or Microsoft Store mode are not supported - these two editions do not support add-ins extensibility. You can upgrade these editions to the Click-to-Run edition to add support for add-ins.
In general, we recommend Windows 10 2004 release and newer. Slido for Windows will also work on Windows 1809 LTSC and Windows 1909 Enterprise editions.

Install Slido for Windows
For bulk installations, you can use the MSI file with a third-party distribution software to bulk install Slido for Windows to selected users or computers.
Administrator permissions are required, as this is a per machine installation.
You can add the following command line parameter to disable update checks and prevent users from updating the Add-in to have full control over the update process.
0 = product will check for updates (default)
1 = update checks are disabled
Do not show notifications for the users to update to the new version of the Slido Add-in.
Example: msiexec /i C:\SlidoAdmin_x64_v0.19.0.msi DISABLE_UPDATE_CHECKS=1
Where “C:\SlidoAdmin_x64_v0.19.0.msi” is the path to the MSI file downloaded to the computer.
We support silent installation and all the other standard Windows Installer parameters (msiexec.exe) from the command line.
Example: msiexec /i C:\SlidoAdmin_x64_v0.19.0.msi /quiet
We regularly release updates to Slido for Windows but the major updates happen once in a quarter. To install the latest version of the Add-in, you can always find it on the link shared in the download section.
To find out what the latest version number is, you can visit slido.com/powerpoint and compare it by checking the original MSI download file stored on your computer.
Slido for Windows can be configured using Group Policy Objects. You can import our administrative template files into your Central Store and set Slido for Windows configuration directly from Group Policy Objects console.
