Will my account update correctly without using admin credentials?

We were told that the free version of Dropbox will prompt UAC on a VDI solution whereas the Dropbox Business version will update Dropbox correctly without having to use administrator credentials.
Is this accurate?

Hello,

All I want to know is if Dropbox Business can it be automatically udpated in a VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) such as Azure without prompting users for credentials?

Thanks for your swift reply, @orko1978

What you're looking for might be covererd in this article about single sign-on (available on Advanced and Enterprise teams), as well as this one, since you mention Azure. 

Let me know if you have any follow up questions!

The articles don't answer the question.  Please just tell me if DropBox can be  installed and used in a corporate environment and receive updates whereby non-administrators can use the software without being interupted for credentials to update it.
