Question / Problem: 

What are the instructions for installing Kofax Express fix packs silently?

Answer / Solution: 

Follow these instructions to install this fix pack silently.

**Silent install of fix packs must be done using Express 3.2 fix pack 9 or higher when it was added.

**Special Note: 
    1. Please do not run the silent installer on a mapped drive or a UNC path.
    2. You can change the installation path by modifying the path of the "szDir" setting in the following files before starting the installer:
       - The KofaxExpress-fixpack.iss file for the Kofax Express Server installation.
       - The client-setup.iss file for the Kofax Express Client installation.
       - The standalone-setup.iss file for the Kofax Express Standalone installation.
       These files are included in the Kofax Express 3.2 Setup folder.

Use the following procedure to silently perform a new installation of Kofax Express 3.2 that includes fix pack 9 or above. If you already have Kofax Express 3.2 installed, proceed to the section that explains how to add fix pack 9 silently:

    Client/Server Installation:
    ---------------------------
    1.  Copy Kofax Express 3.2 Setup to the computer.
    2.  Extract KofaxExpress-3.2.0.X.zip to a folder on the computer, and then copy KofaxExpress-3.2.0.X.exe and the "Setup" folder to the same folder where the Setup.exe file for             Kofax Express 3.2 Setup is saved.
    3.  Close all applications on the computer and make sure that you are logged in as a user with Administrator rights.
    4.  If applicable to your version of Windows, turn off User Account Control (UAC) until the installation is complete.
    5.  Use "Run as Administrator" to open a Command Prompt window, and navigate to the Setup\Silent Installation folder.
    6.  Run the Kofax Express Server Silent Setup shortcut.
        Another Command Prompt window will open and then close automatically when the installation is done.
    7.  When the server installation is complete, verify that the ClientSetup deployment folder was automatically created during the server installation. 
            By default, the path to the deployment folder is similar to the following: <Installation path>\Install\ClientSetup
    8.  Make sure that the ClientSetup deployment folder is able to access each client workstation where you plan to install Kofax Express.
        You can share the folder, or copy it to a network location or removable media.
    9.  Copy the ClientSetup folder to each client workstation. ClientSetup contains preconfigured information required to install Kofax Express client software.  
        Client workstations contact the centralized job and scan profile repository on the server computer.
    10. On the client workstation, close all applications on the computer and make sure that you are logged in as a user with Administrator rights.
    11. If applicable to your version of Windows, turn off User Account Control (UAC) until the installation is complete.
    12. Use "Run as Administrator" to open a Command Prompt window, and navigate to the Setup\Silent Installation of the ClientSetup folder.
    13. Run the Kofax Express Client Silent Setup shortcut.
        Another Command Prompt window will open and then close automatically when the installation is done.

    3.  Close all applications on the computer and make sure that you are logged in as a user with Administrator rights.
    4.  If applicable to your version of Windows, turn off User Account Control (UAC) until the installation is complete.
