Software Deployment Question
Has anyone dealt with deploying a software called Encryptics?

It is a data security software that we use when sending out confidential information through our Outlook client. This is the company https://www.encryptics.com/
When it deploys, the software installs under C:\Users\%User%\AppData\Local so it is profile specific. We went through the Group Policy route to deploy it to all users upon login to any workstation in our facility. Unfortunately it isn't installing.
These are the steps that we took:
1. Trusted Encryptics Publishing Certificate - Under Group Policy Management I created a GPO associated with the domain, Imported certificate as Trusted Publisher.
2. Created a distribution point on our network for the MSI package.
3. Under Active Directory Users and Computers I right clicked on the domain, clicked properties, clicked the Group Policy tab, and clicked New. Type name of this new policy, clicked properties, clicked security tab, clicked to select "Apply Group Policy" check box for the security groups that I want this policy to apply to. I created a custom security group in AD and added users that I wish to have Encryptics pushed to.
4. Under Active Director Users and Computers I right clicked on the domain, clicked properties, clicked Group Policy tab, selected the group policy I want and clicked edit. Under User Configuration I expand Software Settings, right clicked software installation, point to New, clicked Package, in the open dialog I typed the full UNC path of the shared installer package, right clicked on package that I added, clicked on properties, selected deployment tab, verified that Assigned is selected, ensured that the boxes "Install At Login" and "Uninstall this application when it falls out of the scope of management" were selected.
I added myself to the security group and nothing happens. I want to see if anyone can give me some guidance on how I can pinpoint the reason why it isn't deploying. Maybe search for something under the Event Viewer? or a better way to deploy this software?
