Making the dekstop install not so buggy
I have had to install, uninstall, and reinstall both the 32 and 64 versions of Teams on my desktop at least 4 times now. It will work for a day maybe 2 at the most and then go through a spiral of trying to login, closing the program, and trying to login again. This cycle would repeat for an entire 8 hour work day if I didn't force shut down the program. I can't in good conscience roll this out to even a test team in the company if they can't get the download to function properly
Thanks for sharing information. Would you mind sharing your machine spec and names of any major software you are running on it (Office, VSO, etc.) so that we could try to recreate similar machine/environment and see if we can repro the issue?
Appreciate your inputs!

I do not know the specs of the desktop. I can tell you my PC is running Windows 10 Pro version 1607.
I am not sure what the issue is. I originally had the 64 installed and it worked fine for about 3 days/ Then when I clicked the icon to launch the program it would spend as long as I allowed trying to log me in and then saying there was a launch issue and then restarting. I do not believe it is an install issue.
I uninstalled the 64 and downgraded to the 32 this week after almost a week of not having access and it seems to be working for the time being. It does prompt me to update to the 64 but I am hesitant to do so with all the issues I previously experienced.
