Before you run the Workflow Installer, you should decide the installation configuration that you want to use. After you have made those decisions, proceed with running the installer.
You can install the pieces of Workflow in a number of different configurations based on organizational need.
Refer to the following list for some common installation configurations:
Testing configurations commonly install all of the pieces of Workflow on a single server. Alternately, you can install Workflow Server and Process Manager on virtual machines to simulate a multi-server configuration for testing purposes.
Designer configurations commonly install only Workflow Server and Workflow Designer on a development computer. The task tray application on the development computer is configured with the Workflow Server and the Process Manager server that are used for production publishing.
