Silently Install VRS 5.x as a Standalone Installation


Question / Problem: 

How to silently install Kofax VRS 5.x as a Standalone Installation

Answer / Solution: 

Kofax VRS 5.x can be silently installed as long as the default scan source is defined in the installation string.  To ensure that the scan source is recognized as a certified scan source, the SCANNERNAME value must match the name of a certified scanner model.  To ensure that the SCANNERNAME matches the certified scanner model listing, open the VRS Administration Console on an existing installation of Kofax VRS, navigate to the Scanner Configuration screen, and note exactly how the scanner model is listed.


To silently install Kofax VRS 5.x as a Standalone installation:

1. Open an elevated Command Prompt "as administrator"

2. Use the following command to silently install Kofax VRS 5.x (where InstallationMediaPath is the path to the setup.exe file, and ScannerModel is the name of the scanner model as it is listed in the VRS Administration Console Scanner Configuration screen):

InstallationMediaPath\setup.exe /s /v"/qn SCANNERNAME="ScannerModel"" 



  • D:\Media\setup.exe /s /v"/qn SCANNERNAME="Fujitsu fi-5950 (ISIS)""


  • E:\Kofax Capture\Prerequisites\VirtualReScan 5.1.1\setup.exe /s /v"/qn SCANNERNAME="Kodak i5250""


  • C:\VRS\Media\setup.exe /s /v"/qn SCANNERNAME="Canon DR-M260""
