I have attempted to install the WebEx Meeting Center plugin via vendor .pkg and also tried compiling a custom package via Composer. Neither method has resulted in a working WebEx plugin. Here are some additional details:
OS X 10.7.4
Has anyone had success packaging/deploying/using this plugin?
Appreciate any feedback.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It's looking like the WebEx64.plugin needs to be installed into ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins as of macOS Sierra.
When user joins a meeting, as mentioned on this thread the necessary WebEx Meeting Center stuff gets downloaded into user's home directory.
If WebEx64.plugin is installed into /Library/Internet Plug-Ins it won't properly launch WebEx Meeting Center.
Installing /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/WebEx64.plugin is not working in my environment.
In Google Chrome the first time a user tries to join a meeting they get a web page that says:
Step 2 of 2: Install the Cisco Webex add-on
and then it downloads Cisco_WebEx_Add-On.dmg. We do not allow users to install software so they can't join the meeting.
From Safari I logged into webex.com with my account. I clicked on the Webex Meetings menu > Support > Downloads. I downloaded the Webex Meetings Desktop App which downloads a file name webexmc_intel.dmg. Inside that .dmg is WebEx Meeting Center.pkg. I opened that .pkg in Suspicious Package and the brainiacs install everything into /tmp/webex/ and then to quote them:
Using Composer I created a new Normal Snapshot to capture everything that was getting install into the users home folder which was basically this:
~/Library/Application Support/WebEx Folder/Add-Ons/Cisco WebEx Start.app
~/Library/Application Support/WebEx Folder/atgpcext64.bundle
~/Library/Application Support/WebEx Folder/T32_64UMC/
Theres a bunch of frameworks and files in this folder but the main one being
~/Library/Application Support/WebEx Folder/T32_64UMC/Cisco WebEx Meeting Center.app
My favorite part about all this is the folder is actually called WebEx Folder!
From Composer I did Build as DMG. I uploaded WebEx Meeting Center 184.108.40.206.dmg to the JSS. Then I created a policy and under Packages I added WebEx Meeting Center 220.127.116.11 and checked it to Install and Fill existing user home directories (FEU). This solved the issue for me.
