Prerequisites for installing the Publisher with Intune.

Before you get started, make sure you take advantage of our free trial!

When installing the Publisher for an Intune-only configuration, ensure you meet the following requirements:


  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.2

  • Appropriate disk space depending on the number of products enabled

  • Supported Operating Systems

# Windows Desktop
Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name Rsat.WSUS.Tools~~~~

You can verify if this capability installed successfully by running the following PowerShell command:

# Windows Desktop
Get-WindowsCapability -Online -Name Rsat.WSUS.Tools~~~~

Running these command should look like this:

  • Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2022

    • When using Windows Server, only the WSUS API component needs to be installed, not full WSUS. The WSUS API can be installed using PowerShell with the command:

# Windows Server
Install-WindowsFeature UpdateServices-API

The Patch My PC Publisher will require the user launching the Publisher tool to be a local Administrator on the server. This requirement is for both the installation as well as running the Publisher after it has been installed and configured.


The Publisher is a lightweight Windows application with a GUI frontend and a Windows service backend. The hardware requirements can be found below.

  • CPU: 2 CPU or more

  • Memory: 8GB of RAM or more

  • Disk Space: 80GB of disk space or more

    • The amount of disk space required will depend on the number of selected products.
