Hello Randal,

Thanks for the email, however I don’t think I have joined your service.  An article by your Joe Winograd came up when I was searching for how to fix an issue with my scanner & Paperport 14.  Unfortunately, having followed his various suggestions I am no further along, other than now I have uninstalled the old Paperport so may be royally in a pickle.

I am not an IT professional so not eligible for membership of your community.  I am just someone who uses a PC and wishes we could go back to the olden days when you installed software from discs and the PC just happily went along until you decided to do something to it.  Nowadays I feel like I would be justified sending a monthly invoice to Microsoft for all the work they make me do trying to figure out how to sort the issues caused by their latest ‘helpful’ update.

Please give my best to Mr Winograd.   In case he’s still interested in Windows 10 and Paperport, here’s what happens when I try to installed 14.5 from the link provided in his article:

This runs:

 

Then I’m asked to select my language and this pops up (normally in English – must have accidentally clicked Deutsche this time!):

 

I’ve done a Windows uninstalled and the special Nuance uninstall, rebooted between each stage and still the same as above.

I did also download the patch (Patch 1) which he suggested but guess there’s not a lot I can do with the patch if I can’t get the .exe to run.

I am now going away to have a …

I have a scanner script that I got from here:

http://beaukey.blogspot.com/2015/09/document-scan-with-vbsscript-and-wia.html

OPTION EXPLICIT

'--- dim objects...
dim wsh, fso, objWIAdialog, objImage, imgFilename
set wsh=CreateObject("wscript.shell")
set fso=CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
set objWIAdialog = CreateObject("WIA.CommonDialog") 

'--- Start the Scanner dialog box, where a scanner can be selected...
set objImage = objWIADialog.ShowAcquireImage

'--- Save and show the scan if the scan was successful...
If Not objImage Is Nothing Then 
    Randomize
    imgFilename=fso.GetSpecialFolder(2) & "\Scan2BMP" &  Int((999999 - 100000 + 1) * Rnd + 100000) & ".jpg" 
    wscript.echo "Scan stored as BMP in file: " & imgFilename
    objImage.SaveFile imgFilename 
    wsh.run(imgFilename)
End if 

Open in new window


It works fine. I would like to tweak it so after it scans, it opens Adobe (I have the full version on Adode CS) instead of windows Image Viewer. I also don’t want to save the file, just have it scan and open in Adobe – is that possible?

I have a printed Excel workbook with all the cells with squares printed around them - not sure how else to say that.  Is there any program that could scan that information in from the printed sheet and put in an Excel document?  No, I don't have access to original document.

I have used Nuance Paperport 14.5 on windows 10 for at least a year now. Something happened the other day and I don't know what but now when I try to use the program itctells,me I seem to be running in the windows xp comparability mode and each time I try to use the program it shuts down. I have uninstalled reinstalled, run registry cleaners, contacted the manufacturer of my scanner (Brother) and Nuance along with a whole host of other things and nothing works. Help!!!

We have one Win 7 64-bit computer that is giving us errors when using Adobe Acrobat Standard 2017.  One error we get is ‘There was an error while reading a stream.’  This happens when we are importing and indexing PDF documents into our document imaging system.  We are also getting an ‘Out of Memory’ error at times when doing this same process.  We have uninstalled and reinstalled the software.  We have other users on different computers using the same software and doing the same process with no errors at all.  Google searches have not given me any help.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Hello, I have Windows 10 and had Paperport 14 which I managed to make work for several months and then last week it stopped working. I downloaded 14.5 and have followed your instructions but it will not install as it says there is a previous version even though I have uninstalled it. I am in desperate need of this program. I appreciate your help.

While troubleshooting a different issue, I noticed the following Event Log error which is being generated each time my machine boots.  The installed version of Paperport  is 14.5, Patch 1,  on Windows 10, v 1607, 64 bit.  The exact error is:

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\Nuance\PaperPort\CheckPPFolders.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "" on line . A component version required by the application conflicts with another component version already active. Conflicting components are:. Component 1: C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\x86_microsoft.windows.common-controls_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.14393.447_none_89c64d28dafea4b9.manifest. Component 2: C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\amd64_microsoft.windows.common-controls_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.14393.447_none_42191651c6827bb3.manifest.

Looking back, the error first appears in the event log beginning 11-23-16, but I have no idea what else might have transpired on that date to cause this to begin.  I don't think I have ever had occasion to manually run CheckPPFolders.exe but I don't know whether or not it is launched by another process and runs in the background from time to time.

I lack the technical background to completely understand the error as well as how to solve it.  Does anyone have thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks.

Hello, whenever I scan a large document using Paperport it has a small window that says "Nuance WIA" and it doesn't allow me to use other programs without jumping to the top. Very irritating when trying to process a word document. I have looked through many settings and can't seem to find a way to remove it. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

          From a previously closed post, I found out I can scan a text document straight into MS Word by using either ABBY Finereader or Paperport.  At this point, I am interested in knowing which program would work best for achieving this goal.  Any shared thoughts, suggestions, or tips will be greatly appreciated.

          Thank you.

I need to send someone a PDF. After scanning a text document and clicking on the document before saving it there is a drop down menu to choose formats. The file formats on the list are:
tif, bmp, pcx, jpg, pct, tga, png, and all files.
This scanner creates files that are quite large as far as pixels and I have to use Irfanview to reduce the size.
There is a Full Auto mode, Home mode and Professional Mode and I have tried all of them and once scanning and looking in the format drop down window I never see PDF as a choice.

Can a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 use OCR to specifically NAME a file (PDF) as the value found when scanning?  For example, it we have a stack of invoices, all formatted the same with the Invoice Number in the same location, can we scan those and ask ScanSnap to name each individual scan page based on the value of the Invoice Number?  (I.e. Inv123.pdf, Inv456.pdf, Inv789.pdf)

Alternatively, I am more sure that we can make a PDF SEARCHABLE so that we could SEARCH within each document for a given invoice number... (i.e. search ALL PDFs that contain INV456)).  Only problem is, that would be slower than simply eyeing down a list of filenames...

Best way to scan and file similar documents?

Thank you!

What is that called?

What programs can do that for me on a Mac?

Only answer this if you can...but those using this morphed image would certainly need to know the answer. Is that morphed image my property? Anytime I use images I need to certify they are mine or public domain.

Thanks

- Numerous PDFs in a network folder, or to be pulled into the solution via a network scanner
- Need to read the bar code and extract the 5 pieces of data for indexing. OR, OCR portions of the page with the same data as in the bar code.
- Use this data to store the document for search and retrieval later - methods may vary. Would like documents placed into folders by the date in the bar code.
- Some sort of compression or load into a database is preferred to keep file size down.
- Windows or Linux based
- OpenSource only: I want to get my hands dirty with it.

Any ideas?

Hi,

I am looking for a product to digitally sign documents.

- documents would be in PDF format and then sent to user to approve, they would sign the document to indicate they approve it and then would email it to the next party that needs to review the same document and they would sign it or "sign off" on it and the document would be complete.

- ideally the document could be shared to the user for them to review and sign so that the owner knows it has been approved before sharing it to another dept/user for further approval or completion.

What kind of product would you recommend for this type of workflow?  PDFs are currently used but there is not digital signature in place yet.

Has anyone used "DocuSign Business Pro Edition" ?

Thanks,

This is a one off exercise:

I have 10,000 pdf's in about 500 folders.
The pdf's are called a persons name and have a photo of the person in the pdf.

Example:
johnsmith.pdf has a picture of John Smith !

I want to start at a high level folder and drill down into all lower folders looking for pdf's.

REQUIREMENT: One large PDF containing all the smaller ones.

Also, I need to be able to search the PDF and find the photo of "John Smith" or whoever.

Nuance is offering Paperport Professional 14 for $59.99.  Info still shows no support for W10.  Will your 14.5 upgrade work on this one?
