If you're using Sense Desktop, just sharing the cloud file, so each time you update the app you can publish it and everyone will access the updated data.
If it is not in the cloud, you must install Sense Desktop on all computers and create the same connection repository on all machines and each update individually as if it were an individual app on each computer.
Try to get Sense Server and all these problems will end.
If you want to Share your App beyond prototyping then publishing to the Cloud or Server is the way to go. As youve found distributing your desktop app lets users explore the data but not refresh it. When you export your app from server for example all the data connections are wiped they want colabrotive refreshes to be done on those environments.
