The AirWatch Agent, available through the Windows Store, provides a single resource for enrollment and facilitates communication between the device and the AirWatch Console. Use the AirWatch Agent to simplify enrollment and enable full MDM functionality.

Consider using the AirWatch Agent for Windows to enroll your Windows 7 devices as the agent provides the simplest enrollment flow for users. You may also consider awagent.com to start enrollment.

The same AirWatch Agent works for both Windows Desktop and Windows 7 devices. When the AirWatch Agent installer runs on a device, the agent checks the enrollment status of the device. If the device is enrolled through Windows Desktop, the agent acts as the AirWatch Protection Agent and installs onto the device. If the device is not enrolled, the AirWatch Agent begins the enrollment process to enroll the device as a Windows 7 device.

Note:

If the enrollment process is interrupted, launching the AirWatch Agent again automatically reinitiates the enrollment process. To relaunch the agent, double-click the icon.
