To install NHS Identity Agent, double-click on the .msi file you downloaded to and follow the prompts by selecting ‘Next’ on each window as required.
If certificates are required for the path-to-live (test) environments, click on the drop-down arrow next to the red X and select “Will be installed on the local hard drive”. If the user will only ever access the live Spine systems, leave this option as default (not installed).
If your organisation installs the NHS certificates via Group Policy and you do not need these installing as part of the Identity Agent, click on the drop-down arrow next to the red X and select “Entire feature will be unavailable”.
Ensure your organisation has correctly extracted all the certificates normally installed by the Identity Agent as these have been updated in Identity Agent v2.x for supporting future live certificates.
Select ‘Next’ to continue.
Select ‘Install’ to continue. Select ‘Yes’ if you see any User Account Control prompts regarding changes to the computer.
Select ‘Finish’ once the installation has completed to close the installation dialogue box.
Once the Identity Agent has been installed, an icon will be placed under the Identity Agent heading on the Applications screen.
