How to install Kofax VRS 5.1.2 Elite on a Kofax Total Agility 7.x workstation so that it uses the VRS licensing bundled with the KTA license


A standalone installation of Kofax VRS 5.1.2 Elite does not look to a KTA 7.x license as a source of VRS licensing.  Therefore VRS 5.1.2 must be installed in a Server/Client installation so the VRS Client installations on the KTA Workstations can pull the VRS licensing from the KTA License.

To install Kofax VRS 5.1.2 in a Server/Client configuration so it pulls its VRS licensing from the KTA license:


Only use this procedure to install Kofax VRS 5.1.2

This procedure does NOT apply to Kofax VRS 5.1 or 5.1.1. Installing Kofax VRS 5.1 or 5.1.1 as a Server installation on the KTA License server will break the KTA License Service.  For the VRS 5.1 and 5.1.1 installation procedure, see: 

Install and Configure VRS 5.1 or 5.1.1 on a KTA 7.x workstation to pull VRS licensing from the KTA license

  1. On the KTA License Server, install Kofax VRS 5.1.2 as a Server installation by running VRSServerInstall.batfrom the Kofax VRS 5.1.2 installation media
  2. Once installation has completed, navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\ImgCtls and share the Deployment folder
  3. On the KTA Workstation, perform a VRS Client installation by running Kofax VRS.msi from the KTA License Server's Deployment network share

    Do not use a local copy of Kofax VRS.msi to install the VRS Client. 

    Running Kofax VRS.msi from the network share will ensure that the Client installer picks up the correct Server information.

  4. Run C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\ImgCtls\bin\KSALicenseUtility.exe to confirm that the License Utility is able to display the KTA License information, including any VRS licenses that may be bundled with it.
