Some customers have expressed interest in installing Workflow Solution as a stand-alone product. In this case, stand-alone means either on a machine without a network connection, or in a networked environment without an installation of the SYmantec Management Platform.
In versions up to Workflow Solution 7 SP3 (current as of the writing of this document), there is no way to perform a stand-alone installation. During installation, Workflow checks in with the Symantec Management Platform (sometimes refereed to as the Notification Server) via a web service. If the Symantec Management Platform does not respond, the installation will error.
Installing with a Symantec Management Platform present is the only option currently. If the intent is to install on a non-networked machine, it may be worthwhile to use virtualization software to create a virtual machine where the Symantec Management Platform resides. Please note that this will at least need to be running during the installation of Workflow, and may be necessary to run while using Workflow. At present, Development has not indicated that this requirement will be removed.
