Step 5: Edit a Group Policy Object that is applied to all the workstation that you want to deploy the InTune client.
Step 6: Navigate to “Computer Configuration > Policies > Software Settings > Software installationâ€ then right click on â€œSoftware installationâ€ then click on â€œNewâ€ then â€œPackagesâ€
Step 7: Navigate to the path that you placed the installation files and select â€œWindows_Intune_X64.msiâ€ then click â€œOpenâ€
Tip #3: If you have x86 client repeat from step 7 with the additional steps in my other article How to prevent x86 (32bit) applications installing via Group Policy on Windows x64 to prevent the x86 version from being deployed to the x64 platforms.
Step 8: Click on â€œAdvancedâ€ and then click â€œOKâ€
Tip #4: Wait a few seconds while it reads the MSIâ€¦
Step 9: As this is a x64 version of the application I recommend that you Add â€œ x64â€ to the name of the program to distinguish what version you have deployed.
Step 10 (Optional): If you want to selectively deploy the client to the workstations click on the â€œSecurityâ€ tab and click the â€œAdvancedâ€.
Step 11 (Optional): Un-tick â€œInclude inheritable permission from this objectâ€™s parent.
Step 12 (Optional): Click â€œAddâ€
Step 13 (Optional): Click â€œOKâ€
Step 14 (Optional): Click on â€œAuthenticated Usersâ€ and click on â€œRemoveâ€
Step 15 (Optional): Click â€œAddâ€ and select the security group name (e.g. â€œInTune Computersâ€) that will be used to assign this application to specific computers.
Step 16 (Optional): Click on â€œOKâ€
Step 15: Accept all other default setting and click â€œOKâ€

InTune Note: The client software that you downloaded from the InTune web site is customised for your computers so they will automatically appear in your InTune web console.
Tip #5: If you also have Verbose vs normal status messages enabled you will see the software being installed during computer start-up.
