PaperPort 14.5 Patch 1 update is often not detected or downloaded automatically. This article provides direct download links to solve the problem for retail (non-bundled) versions of the Standard and Professional editions, as well as the Professional edition in Nuance's own OmniPage Ultimate bundle.

In a previous article here at Experts Exchange, I wrote about my experience with Nuance's PaperPort 14 on the Windows 10 Technical Preview.


During the comments at that article, an EE member asked if I had heard anything about an update to PaperPort 14.5. I replied that Nuance released PaperPort 14.5 Patch 1 on 12-Jun-2015. The patch should be available via the Common Software Update Manager (used by PaperPort and other Nuance products). But if the update is not detected or not downloaded by your PaperPort 14.5, here are direct download links:


Professional

Standard

http://supportcontent.nuance.com/paperport/14/14_5/Patch1/Patch1__PP14USTD_13264__v4.exe


At the time of those comments, I pointed out that Patch 1 worked only for retail versions, not OEM bundles; and, due to a glitch that Nuance had not yet fixed, Patch 1 did not work on Nuance's own OmniPage Ultimate bundle. The purpose of this new article is to document that Nuance has finally fixed Patch 1 so that it works on the PaperPort Professional 14.5 that is bundled with OmniPage Ultimate. But, and it's a big but, there is still a problem reported by many users, namely, the Common Software Update Manager may detect the update:

But clicking the Install or Download Only buttons both fail, hanging forever on this screen:

The solution is to download the Patch 1 installer from this direct link:

http://supportcontent.nuance.com/paperport/14/14_5/Patch1/Patch1__PP14UPRO_13223__v3.exe


After downloading it, close PaperPort and run it. Here's the installer's first screen:

Even though you closed PaperPort, there will probably be some PaperPort processes running, so the next screen will likely be this:

Select the Automatically close and attempt to restart applications radio button and you should get this successful installation dialog:

To conclude the article, here is the list of support tickets that Patch 1 fixes. The list was provided by Nuance's technical support, with written permission to share:

Article Update on 15-May-2016: I've received messages from members asking how to tell from the Help>About dialog box if Patch 1 is installed. The bad news is that the dialog does not mention Patch 1 (in neither the Version nor the BUILDID). The good news is that there's a way to do it for the three editions of PaperPort 14.5 that support Patch 1, as follows:


PaperPort 14.5 Professional – Retail

Base BUILDID: PP-1308-011-13264.1829

After Patch 1: PP-1308-011-15264.1200


PaperPort 14.5 Standard – Retail

Base BUILDID: PP-1313-011-13264.1826

After Patch 1: PP-1313-011-15264.1154


PaperPort 14.5 Professional – Bundled with OmniPage Ultimate

Base BUILDID: PP-1303-020-13223.1648

After Patch 1: PP-1303-020-15451.1609
