Some minor configuration needed after a K2 Blackpearl installation

The below information details the steps involved for configuration after a fresh installation of K2 Blackpearl. This is strictly for development licensed installs. I just wanted to share this information in the hopes that it would help some fellow admins curb a bit of frustration after their install is finished.
  1. ​Access Central Administration
  2. Under "K2 for SharePoint" select the Activate All K2 Features and K2 Configuration Settings option.
  3. Add a check next to sp-intranet-scadmins under the Workflow Designers section.
  4. Repeat step 3 for the Workflow Participants section.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Close out of Central Administration
  7. Navigate to C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories and select the virtual directory setup for your SharePoint web application. Open it.
  8. Open the web.config for editing.
  9. Search for the <PageParserPaths> tag. You will add a new tag between that and the closing tag.

    <PageParserPath VirtualPath="/*" CompilationMode="Always" AllowServerSideScript="true" IncludeSubFolders="true" />
  10. Save the web.config.
  11. Restart IIS via Administration Tools | Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
That's it. You should now be configured for K2 Blackpearl. You can tweak the security settings via steps 3 and 4 depending on who you want having access to what.
