Installation Logs for Kofax VRS 5.x


Question / Problem: 

How to enable Kofax VRS 5.x installation logging and locate additional installation logs that are created automatically.

Answer / Solution: 

To enable installation logging when installing Kofax VRS as a standalone or server installation, run the VRSInstall.bat file located in the same folder as the setup.exe file on the Kofax VRS 5.x installation media.  VRSInstall.bat creates the VRSInstaller.log file in the \%TEMP% location.

Kofax VRS 5.x Installation Log created by VRSInstall.bat:

  • C:\Users\<userID>\AppData\Local\Temp\VRSInstaller.log


When Kofax Capture installs VRS, the KfxVRSInst.log file is created in the \%TEMP% location.

Kofax VRS 5.x Installation Log created by the Kofax Capture Installer:

  • C:\Users\<userID>\AppData\Local\Temp\KfxVRSInst.log


Additional Kofax VRS 5.x Installation log files are automatically created in the \%TEMP% location regardless of how VRS installed.

Kofax VRS 5.x Installation Logs that are created automatically:

  • C:\Users\<userID>\AppData\Local\Temp\Kofax VRS_Script.log
  • C:\Users\<userID>\AppData\Local\Temp\VRS5Migration.log
  • C:\Users\<userID>\AppData\Local\Temp\VRS5Migrator.log
  • C:\Users\<userID>\AppData\Local\Temp\VRSInstallUtil.log
