How to install unattended modules As Services?



The following executables for the unattended modules are located in the Kofax Capture Bin folder:

Kofax PDF Generator kfxpdf.exe
OCR Full Text ocr.exe
Recognition Server fp.exe
Export release.exe
Remote Synchronization Agent (RSA) acirsa.exe
XML Import Connector acxmlai.exe


To install the service for a Kofax Capture module, run the installation from a command prompt on the station where you want to run a module as a service as follows:


These can be installed from the command line with the following syntax:

  • Install: module_executable.exe -install
  • Uninstall: module_executable.exe -uninstall


If you are using User Profiles, use the following additional syntax:

  • Install: module_executable.exe –install -u:"userID" -p:"password"
  • Uninstall: module_executable.exe –uninstall -u:"userID" -p:"password"



  • To install services, you must be logged in to Windows with administrator rights.
  • Kofax Capture Enterprise users can install multiple instances of a service.
  • When using KCN Server, you can also install the Remote Synchronization Agent (RSA) as a service.
  • Running additional services on your server may impact overall system performance, and therefore is not recommended unless you are using a multiprocessor system as your server.
