Now that you have the correct MSI, you have two options in regards to its deployment. If you need to deploy the add-on to a few workstations you can use the instructions for manual installation. If the add-on needs to be deployed company wide you can take advantage of the Active Directory features to deploy the MSI package simultaneously to multiple client computers.
Follow the directions below to install the SecureAuth ActiveX plug-in.
The SecureAuth ActiveX installer requires administrative privileges to perform the installation.
1. Unzip the archive you downloaded in the previous step. After the archive is decompressed you should have two files.
2. If your Internet Explorer is running in 64-bit mode then choose the MSI with MSI64 in the title, for browser running in 32-bit mode run the MSI without 64 in the title. If you are unsure whether your browser is running in 32-bit or 64-bit mode, choose the 32-bit installer. Most versions of Internet Explorer run in 32-bit mode by default to ensure backwards compatibility with older add-ons.
3. When the installer launches you will be presented with an initial screen explaining its purpose. Read the information and then click "Next >" to continue.
4. Next you will be presented with the "Select Installation Folder" screen of the installer. SecureAuth recommends that you use the default settings on this screen. However if you need to install into a different directory you can make that change here. Click "Next >" to continue.
5. You will now be presented with the "Confirm Installation" screen of the installer. Verify the settings you have made and if you're sure everything is correct click "Next >" to continue. In order to review previous settings you can click the "< Back" button to see earlier screens.
6. After you click the "Next >" button in the previous step, a status window appears showing you the progress of the plug-in installation.
During this stage of the installation a Windows UAC dialog may appear asking "Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to your computer?". You can safely answer "Yes" to this dialog and allow the installation to continue. The certificate issue will be resolved in a future version of the installer.
7. The "Installation Complete" screen will now be presented signaling the installation process has completed. Click the "Close" button to exit the installer.
8. You have successfully installed the SecureAuth ActiveX add-on.

1. Create a Distribution Point
Log on to the server with administrative credentials.
In the console tree, browse to Domains > [your domain] > Group Policy Objects.
Right-click the Group Policy Object,and then click New.
Type a name for this new GPO (for example, SecureAuth ActiveX), and then press Enter.
Group Policy supports two methods of deploying an MSI package. This tutorial provides instructions for both options.
Assigned: The MSI package is automatically deployed the next time a user logs on to the computer (if User Configuration is selected) or when the computer restarts (if Computer Configuration is selected). This method does not require any user intervention. We recommend using Computer Configuration instead of User Configuration to ensure a successful MSI package installation regardless of which user logs on to the computer.
Published: You can publish a program distribution to users. When the user logs on to the computer, the published program is displayed in the Add or Remove Programs dialog box, and it can be installed from there.
