Nexthink Dependencies

The Finder must match the versions of both the Portal and the Engine to which it connects. After installing the Finder from the Portal, the automatic update mechanism of the Finder takes care of this dependency. On the other hand, if you install the Finder with the per-device installer, make sure that the installed version of the Finder matches the versions of both the Portal and the Engine.
