so... we're waiting for a fix from Pulse like everyone else. Is there a way to force the Pulse client to NOT use browser. for some users, even when you right click pulse icon and connect that way a browser pops-up. we have found fully uninstalling all Pulse programs and reinstalling via .msi works to avoid browser, but I need something easier!!
In order to use the pulse clinet there is no way to install it without a brwoser but to run the msi. Yes you can run the browser and install the client, but without a browser you must run the MSI manually. I am not aware of an easier way than that.
