Free standard Paperport download

Hello, I went into your website looking for a free standard paperport for a Windows 8.  It seems that it went through until it asked me for a serial number.  Please advise on how to proceed.  Thank you.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You didn't say what version of PaperPort you're looking for, but here are articles on the last three versions (11, 12, 14 — there was no 13) that explain how to download the latest point release of each:

PaperPort 11 - Free Upgrade to Version 11.2
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Document_Imaging/A_17488-PaperPort-11-Free-Upgrade-to-Version-11-2.html

PaperPort 12 - Free Upgrade to Version 12.1
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Document_Imaging/A_17489-PaperPort-12-Free-Upgrade-to-Version-12-1.html

PaperPort 14 - Free Upgrade to Version 14.5
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Document_Imaging/A_17490-PaperPort-14-Free-Upgrade-to-Version-14-5.html

Each article has links to both the Standard and Professional editions. You won't need a serial number to download, but you will need it to install and activate.

Also, since you're on W8, I suggest reading this article (if you're on PP14):

Update on 14-Nov-2015: Patch 1 for PaperPort 14.5 is now available. This EE article explains how to download and install it:
