How to install Kofax Capture, Kofax Transformation Modules in an APP-V environment

Installation – Creating the Package

  1. Start with a clean operating system.
    This step is critical. You must use an operating system on which Kofax software has never been previously installed. If Kofax software previously existed and was uninstalled, this requirement is not satisfied.
  2. Install the App-V Sequencer on the clean system.
  3. Create a .reg file on the operating system with the following content:
    • Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
      [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{CE882FA9-3723-4819-B45D-9DA565487491}\6.0\FLAGS]@="0"
  4. Run the sequencer and select Create a New Virtual Application Package.
  5. Select Create Package (default).
  6. Select Standard Application.
  7. For the installer, browse to KC setup.exe.
  8. Enter a name for the package (such as Kofax Apps).
  9. In the primary folder, enter :
    • ​​​​​​​C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax
Note: As the sequencer runs the Kofax Capture setup and installation, keep the sequencer wizard open.
  1. When the installation is completed, return to the sequencer and select Run.
  2. Select KTM setup.exe and proceed with the Kofax Transformation Modules installation.
  3. When the installation is completed, return to the sequencer.
  4. Select Run again.
  5. Select the Registry file created in Step 3, and confirm the Registry changes.
  6. Select I am finished installing.
  7. Proceed with the wizard until the package is created.
  8. Share the folder where the package is created.

How to deploy APP-V package after installation

Installation – Deploying the Package

After installing the full App-V infrastructure, you can use a Web interface to publish and deploy the package.

However, for a single installation, it is easier to use PowerShell:

  1. Install the App-V 5.0 Client.
  2. Open PowerShell and add the package by entering:
    • $KofaxPkg = Add-AppvClientPackage \\appvpackages\kofaxapps.appv
  3. Publish the package by entering:
    • Publish-AppvClientPackage $KofaxPkg

The Kofax applications should now appear on the Start menu.
