Installing OnCommand Workflow Automation 4.1

Refer to the “OnCommand Workflow Automation 4.1: Installation and Setup Guide for Windows” for proper instructions.

Logged in as a local administrative user - say DOMAIN\WFAADMIN (note that the instructions do say log in to Windows using the default local administrator account, but many organizations will disable/disallow this) - you can either install WFA 4.1 interactively by right-clicking the WFA install executable and selecting “Run as administrator” and answering the prompts -
