You can automatically deploy Printix Client with Microsoft Endpoint Manager. If you also Enable Azure authentication users are automatically registered the first time they sign in to Printix Client with their Microsoft work or school account. Can I use Microsoft Intune for Education?

The Printix Client Microsoft Installer (MSI) package and MSI arguments are available on the Software page.

  • MSI arguments
    Select the relevant one to copy it to the clipboard.
    • Sign in after installation
      Sign in will occur right after Printix Client is installed. This is the default behavior.
    • Sign in postponed until restart
      Deploy Printix Client without starting the user interface (PrintixClient.exe). This method can be used to install Printix Client as part of an automated process (like Windows Autopilot) that completely configures a new computer before this is delivered to the user. This way, sign in is postponed until the user starts to use the computer. Only the Printix Service (PrintixService.exe) is started. The computer with Printix Client will only be registered and listed in Printix Administrator once a user has signed in.

Can I use Intune for Education?

Intune for Education (part of Microsoft Education, Windows 10 (version 1703 or later)) is a simple but powerful solution for managing policies, apps and settings for your classroom devices. As a subscriber to Microsoft Intune for Education you have also access to Microsoft Endpoint Manager.

To deploy Printix Client to classroom devices you need to open Microsoft Endpoint Manager (not Intune for Education) and follow the above instructions. This is because Intune for Education does not allow you to specify Command line arguments.

Where to find the Printix ID in Windows Registry?

  1. Select Windows logo key + R to open Run.
  2. Type: regedit, and select OK.
  3. In Registry Editor browse to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\
    printix.net\Printix Client\Tenant
  1. The value TenantId should be your Printix ID as show in the name of the MSI file you downloaded in step 2. Example: cbd7e0b5-da2a-4cb6-b7f7-a04ee31cac90.
    The value TenantName is normally your Printix home (acme.printix.net), however it may say Printix Auto Name when installation is via MSI/Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
