Running ABBYY FineReader 10 HotFolder.exe at startup and silently
Posted on 2011-03-18
I'm testing with ABBYY Finereader. I'm particularly interested in the HotFolder.exe feature.
I have put a shortcut to Hotfolder.exe in my Startup folder under the user account that will be running this. However, this loads the application as visible and I have to close out of it.
I plan on running Hotfolder.exe at all times so that anything scanned as pdf is automatically OCR'ed, but would prefer it to start at start up and be immediately minimized to the system tray.
I couldn't find any info on any program switches for Hotfolder.exe. I was hoping someone might know how to accomplish starting HotFolder.exe silently at startup. And if there isn't a way to do so with switches, then possibly suggest a different way to accomplish it.
System is Windows XP SP3.
