3. This has to be changed to actual path where agent is installed. Check if the agent is installed in C drive or D drive. 
copy the path : For Example if agent is installed in C drive 
C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\DSM\Bin & add caf.exe to path 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\DSM\Bin\caf.exe"
As shown in below picture.
