FileWave Logo FileWave Custom Installer Builder


Custom FileWave Client for Windows

The Custom Client is to be used to enroll new devices into FileWave.
These should NOT be used to upgrade an existing FileWave Client. Doing so may break communication between the Client and FileWave server.
Please refer to the product download pages to obtain the appropriate Client Upgrade Fileset to upgrade your existing FileWave Clients
