Kofax Front-Office Server Installation Guide


Kofax, Inc.

The C:\Program Files (x86) folder is still required for some components of Kofax Front-Office
Server. To support these components, the installer does the following:


Bonjour is installed in both C:\Program Files and C:\Program Files (x86). A Bonjour

subfolder is created in each folder.


VRS and PostgreSQL are installed in C:\Program Files (x86). The PostgreSQL database is
installed on the C drive even if Kofax Front-Office Server is installed on another local

drive. There must be sufficient space on the C drive to accommodate the database. Refer to

Requirement for Free Hard Drive Space

for more information.


All other files are installed in the installation path you specified.
