  • If you are installing ETP Client 3.2.0 or later on Windows and Microsoft Visual C++ is not on the machine, install the redistributable package of Visual Studio (vc_redist.x86.exe). To download this package, see Microsoft documentation on the latest supported versions of Visual C++.
  • Make sure Web Proxy Auto-Discovery (WPAD) for WinHTTP is running on Windows computers. For more information, see Web Proxy Auto-Discovery (WPAD) on Windows.

Complete this procedure to install ETP Client on an end-user laptop. When completing this installation process, you can enter an entitlement code or an activation code.

These steps describe the installation process with the ETP Client setup wizard. You can perform these steps on a Mac or Windows machine. Test ETP Client in a local environment before installing it on end-user machines.

Note: If you use pip and your organization has enabled ETP Proxy, make sure you also add the ETP Proxy TLS man-in-the-middle (MITM) certificate to the pip configuration file. In the pip.conf file, add this entry:
[global]
cert = /path/certificate.pem
where:
  • path is the path to the certificate
  • certificate is the name of the certificate
