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

http://supportcontent.nuance.com/paperport/14/14_5/Patch1/Patch1__PP14UPRO_13264__v4.exe


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:


Patch1-OP-Ult-bundle-available.jpg

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


Patch1-Install-or-Download-Only-fail.jpg

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:


Patch1-install-first-screen.jpg

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


Patch1-install-second-screen.jpg

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


Patch1-install-successful.jpg

My Help>About before installing Patch 1 is this:


Help-About-before-Patch1.jpg

My Help>About after installing Patch 1 is this:


Help-About-after-Patch1.jpg

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:


#44889 Multiple double sided copies sent to print - do not print sides of document correctly

#45095 PP14 Send to bar issue - cannot remove certain icons

#49244 PaperPort crashes when opening password-protected MS Word file in PaperPort's ImageView

#49405 PPLINKS.EXE crashes every time after the closing of PaperPort

#49569 Multipage printing using collate results in uncollate order

#50003 Stacking PDF files - Creates Blank Pages

#52375 First page always comes up in full page view when viewing PDF files in ImageView - regardless of default view settings

#53628 The character resolution becomes worse when using PaperPort print function

#54094 PaperPort crashes during changing the order of thumbnails of a PDF document in ImageView

#54235 Cannot open "any" MS Office2013 apps from the PaperPort send to bar ("Something went wrong...")

#54522 PP crashed in Win 8 while exiting if ScanView had the focus

#57001 Incorrect handling Acrobat Reader and Acrobat Pro icons on send to bar

#57124 Memory Error when dragging document to Evernote in Send to Bar

#58374 Power PDF icon is not integrated to PP Send-to-bar if PaperPort is installed without PDF Viewer

#58398 There is no result if print with PaperPort Image Printer after Patch applying the patch

#58678 PaperPort error message > the file is read only


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

i did everything and it ran fine up until w10 v 1703 then it reverted to
Machine: AMD A10-5800K APU,  10 Home Edition, 8 GB ram, 64 bit Windows x64 processor, 1 TB Hard drive, desktop
Scanner:  Cannon 210
PaperPort version 14.5 + patch 1

Program ran fine for a while on Windows 7, upgraded to windows 10 even after the updates,
Had an issue uninstalled and reinstalled the 14.5 patch 1 worked fine even in 1703 version of w10. then
Program glitched, flashed on the screen like it was having an epileptic seizure.
Message " error and that was shutting down ". After that I got :

PaperPort seems to be running in Windows XP Compatibility mode which may result in errors
We recommend disabling Compatibility mode for the paperport.exe program see, Technote
6629.

For more help on the issue, please visit http://www. Nuance.com/imaging/support/.

You cannot disable compatibility support. You must choose some sort of compatibility.

Hi Marilynn,
Thanks for joining Experts Exchange today and reading my article. It seems that two of your comments are cut off — it will be helpful if you complete them:
i did everything and it ran fine up until w10 v 1703 then it reverted to
Reverted to what?
W7 , W8 , W
I presume that last "W" is for W10, but I want to be certain. After I hear back from you, we'll begin the troubleshooting. Welcome aboard! Regards, Joe

I am considering the possibility of upgrading from PP9Pro to PP14.5Pro but after reading about all the problems with this software, I am looking for other more compatible options with Windows 10.   You need to be a guru or geek to be able to install and get a program to work because it has not been duly nor properly customized for us non-techies. This is really scary to say the least!

Hi Franco,
First, thanks for joining Experts Exchange today and reading my article — welcome aboard!
upgrading from PP9Pro to PP14.5Pro
I used PP9Pro for many years — was one of the best PaperPort releases ever! I was reluctant to "upgrade" from it, but eventually went to PP10 (terrible version), then 11, 12, and 14 (as I'm sure you know, Nuance was superstitious and did not have a PP13). I'm now running PP14.5Pro/Patch1 and am happy with it. My production machines are still W7, but I do have PP14.5Pro/Patch1 in a W10 sandbox where it runs fine, although it is not in heavy use there. For PaperPort users on W10, I suggest reading another one of my EE articles and following the Tips in it:
PaperPort 14 in Windows 10 - A First Look
looking for other more compatible options with Windows 10
I can't recommend anything from personal experience because, as I mentioned above, my production computers are still W7 and I have relatively little experience with other such products on W10. However, I've heard some users in the PaperPort community say that they're now successfully using Lucion's FileCenter and Tracker's PDF-XChange PRO in W10, so you may want to take a look at those. I've done three 5-minute video Micro Tutorials here at EE on the free version of PDF-XChange:

How to rotate pages in a PDF with free software
How to OCR pages in a PDF with free software
How to password-protect a PDF with free software

Also, Nuance has another product in the PDF space called Power PDF, which comes in both Standard and Advanced editions. I've published an article and two 5-minute video Micro Tutorials here at EE on the Advanced edition:

Batch Conversion of PDF, TIFF, and Other Image Formats via Command Line Interface to PDF, PDF Searchable, and TIFF with Power PDF Advanced
Bates Stamping/Numbering of PDF Files with Power PDF Advanced
Convert Scanned Image-Only PDF Files to PDF Searchable Image Files via OCR with Power PDF Advanced
You need to be a guru or geek to be able to install and get a program to work because it has not been duly nor properly customized for us non-techies.
I hear you on that, although it may be a bit of an overstatement. I don't think that you have to be a "guru" or "geek" to download and install PP14.5 and Patch1. There are certainly equally challenging issues for "non-techies" with other products, including Windows itself and Microsoft Office.
This is really scary to say the least!
I don't think that it's any scarier than other stuff that we do on our Windows-based computers all the time — I hold my breath on every Windows update. :)  I know that some folks who use W10 in production were terrified of the Version 1709 update (aka the Fall Creators Update) — talk about scary! :)

In any case, good luck with your efforts. Please post back here with your experiences. Regards, Joe

After install Parperport patch 1 for version 14.5 pro the software quit working and brings up the error that the program seems to be running in Windows XP compatibility mode. After numerous attempts at uninstalling and reinstalling Paperport Pro 14.5 the error continues and the program will not run. I have found no way to remove the patch or correct the problem. The so fix says to uncheck the compatibility mode box for the version it is reported running in but the box is not checked. Stumped.

Hi Jerry,
Thanks for joining Experts Exchange today and reading my article. You have, unfortunately, run afoul of PaperPort's infamous Compatibility Mode problem. Please try the proposed solution in another EE article that I just wrote and let me know if it works for you:

How to fix: PaperPort appears to be running Windows XP Compatibility Mode, see Technote 6629

Writing that article has been on my to-do list for a while, and I thank you for giving me the incentive to do it. I hope it helps you. Welcome aboard to Experts Exchange! Regards, Joe

Hi Jerry,
We now have this same discussion going on in three different places...this article, my compatibility mode article, and your question.

I suggest that we consolidate the three threads at your question:

Hi. Joe. I am and have been using Paperport 14.5 Professional for several years. I just bought a new pc. I downloaded the Patch 1 successfully but it would not install. The Windows installer says the program is missing even though I had been using Paperport on the new machine for several days. Don't know where to go from here. Can you help?

Thanks!

Hi Frank,
Thanks for joining Experts Exchange today and reading my article — welcome to EE!

Note that Patch 1 is not a full version of PaperPort 14.5 — it is simply an update (a patch) to an already-installed PP14.5. So, when trying to install Patch 1, if the installer says that the program is missing, it likely means that PP14.5 is not installed. But since you say that you had been using PaperPort on the new machine for several days, my guess is that it's PaperPort 14.0, not 14.5. If that's the case, then first do the upgrade from 14.0 to 14.5 (free!), as described in another one of my EE articles:

PaperPort 14 - Free Upgrade to Version 14.5

After you're sure that 14.5 is installed (check the version in Help>About), install Patch 1, as described in this article.

One other point: Patch 1 cannot be applied to OEM versions of PaperPort, such as those bundled with scanners and all-in-one devices. If that's what you have, that's the reason for the problem. Patch 1 can be applied only to retail versions, both the Standard and Professional editions, as well as the Professional edition in Nuance's own OmniPage Ultimate bundle. Also, note that there are three different downloads for those three editions, i.e., Retail/Std, Retail/Pro, OP-Ultimate/Pro. Those three links are in this article — make sure that you downloaded the right one for your PaperPort. Regards, Joe

Hi, Joe. You were right. I had not installed the 14.5 update when I installed Paperport on my new PC. I installed from the original CD I got when I bought the program. I do not recall getting any other programs - just Paperport. I did the 14.5 update with no issue. I have tried again to install Patch 1 but I got the same answer from my Windows Installer. How would I be able tell if my version was some version that would not be compatible with Patch 1?

Hi Frank,
Click the Help menu, then the About PaperPort button on the ribbon. Tell me what the first three lines say. For example, mine look like this:

pp14.5 pro help about
Either type it in or post a screenshot, but if you do the latter, be sure to redact or crop out the S/N, as I did  — not a good to idea to post that on the Internet. Speaking of that, it's also not a good idea to put your email address in public posts here at EE (it's ok in the EE private message system), so I've asked the EE Mods to remove it from your first post. Regards, Joe

Got it! And it's good news. You have a retail version of PP14.5 Pro, so you should be able install Patch 1 on it. The link for the file you want is this:

http://supportcontent.nuance.com/paperport/14/14_5/Patch1/Patch1__PP14UPRO_13264__v4.exe

Download that and run it...should install fine.

Correct. Another one of my EE articles will help:

Thanks, Joe. Patch 1 installed effortlessly! Now I am about finding and installing Canon ScanGear for my new machine. In my old PC, this software made the dialog box in Paperport much more useful. Have you heard of this? Silly question, eh?

My best,

Frank

That's great news, Frank! I'm very glad to hear that you now have PaperPort Pro 14.5 with Patch 1 installed.

I (and all my clients) have never had a Canon scanner, so I can't speak from personal experience, but I do know that ScanGear is Canon's TWAIN-compatible and WIA-compatible scanning driver. You should be able to download it from the Drivers&Downloads section of the Canon support website. Make sure that you download the version that supports your particular scanner model and your version of Windows, including its bit level. After installing it, PaperPort should automatically detect its existence and offer its TWAIN and WIA drivers in the Scan or Get Photo pane (when you click the Desktop menu, then the Scan Settings button on the ribbon). But that's just a guess on my part, since I've never had ScanGear installed. If you need further help on it, click the big, blue "Ask a Question" button at the top of this page (or any EE page), fill in the simple form, and submit it. There are likely many other EE members who have Canon scanners and are more knowledgeable than I am about ScanGear. Regards, Joe
