Issue

While going through the  Confirm® Task Processor Installation, you receive the error - Server Not Found:

Image showing the error message

Cause

When you are installing the Confirm Task Processor you will be asked to specify the user account that the Task Processor Windows service will use to log on. That Domain\Username needs to be specified with a complete network path in some instances.

Resolution

UPDATED: November 19, 2017
Make sure to try specifying the username and domain with UNC, fully qualified, path. If you still can’t get past the error message, try to leave the Domain\Username blank and then change the logon information for the service after the installation is complete.
