Client Connector for Server essentials 2016

Not impressed :) Out of 12 computers it is failing to install on 3. Two questions:

1) Can you download the latest and greatest from Microsoft and run as a standalone package?

2) It says it is installed on the workstation but the Dashboard on the server says it is offline. Is it at all configurable on the workstation?

No luck. I often wondered what this "Connection Client" brings to the party. Looks like niceties at best. It appears that Windows is corrupt on these workstations. Seems to work OK if you join the domain without it. Other then some reporting and backup do you really need it?

For anyone else who comes across this issue the problem turned out to be permissions on the C:\Windows\Temp folder. I have had the same issue cause installer problems on Windows 10. How and why the permissions got changed and weren't correct? All I can say is leave it to Microsoft.......
