Summary:
The message details a change in the installation directory for the Teams Meeting add-in to prevent file removal during classic Teams uninstallation. It is available now, with no admin action required unless manually installing the add-in. Admins should update documentation accordingly.

Details:
To prevent the classic Microsoft Teams uninstallation from removing the Teams Meeting add-in (TMA) files deployed on a machine during installation, admins must install the Teams Meeting add-in into a different directory than the directory used for a classic Teams installation. If a user manually installs the Teams Meeting add-in with Microsoft Installer (MSI) and specifies the same installation directory used by classic Teams, the TMA files might be removed when classic Teams is uninstalled. Typically, it is only necessary to specify the installation directory for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) installations.
[When this will happen:]
General Availability (Worldwide, GCC, GCC High, DoD): Available now, starting with the release of new Teams on April 9, 2024.
