Install WebCapture Service to a Custom Location


Question / Problem: 

How to install WebCapture Service to a custom location on the scan station.

Answer / Solution: 

By default, when the WebCapture Service is installed from the KFS Thin Client, it is installed to the following location on the scan station:



However, for enterprise deployment scenarios where a custom WebCapture Service installation location is required, WebCapture Service can be installed manually to a custom location.


To install WebCapture Service to a custom location:

If WebCapture Service was previously installed on the scan station, the installer, Kofax.WebCapture.Installer.msi may still be located in the user's Downloads folder.


If WebCapture Service has never been installed on the station, Kofax.WebCapture.Installer.msi can be copied from the KFS installation location on the KFS server:

\Kofax\Front Office Server 4.3\bin\ThinClient\bin

  1. On the scan station, open the Command Prompt "as administrator"
  2. Navigate to the folder on the scan station that contains the Kofax.WebCapture.Installer.msi file
  3. Run the following command (where <Installation Folder> is the path to the custom installation location):
    msiexec /i Kofax.WebCapture.Installer.msi INSTALLFOLDER=<Installation Folder>
