Type the user name and password for the initial Kofax Front-Office Server administrator.
Use this user account to log on to the Administration Console for the first time. The user
name and password must meet the following rules:


User names must be unique on the server.


User names are case-insensitive, cannot include spaces, and the following characters

are not permitted: ~ # % * \ ; / : & ? . ' , " ` $ < + >


Passwords are case-sensitive and can include spaces, but not at the beginning or end.
There can be no repeating spaces.


The password for the initial administrator cannot include the following characters that
are prohibited by the database: & $ < ' > \ * / "

You can create additional administrators by assigning the Administrator role to other
users in the Administration Console.
Click Next to continue.


A Windows user account is needed to run the Kofax Front-Office Server service. Select
either the Local System account or use another Windows user account by selecting “This
account” and entering a user name and password. For the user name, use either the
domain\username or [email protected] format.
The Windows user account that you select must have read/write access to the shared
folder that you specified in step 9. If you are creating a new shared folder, the user
account is granted access automatically. If you are using an existing shared folder, you

must add read/write access to the user account manually.
When you have entered the user name and password, click Next.

Note the following while the installer is running:


Do not close the installer window until the installation is complete. Interrupting the

If you are installing on the 64-bit version of Windows, the installation of Bonjour is not
a silent installation. You will be prompted to complete the Bonjour installation screens.


A screen indicates when the installation is finished. Click Finish to close the installer.
