PaperPort is among the most important applications that I run on my Windows computers. I use it every day, for nearly all of my document and photo scanning, as well as most of my document and photo imaging, including OCR via its built-in OmniPage capabilities.

Disclaimer before going further: I have no affiliation with Nuance and no financial interest in it whatsoever. I am simply a happy user/customer.

I've been using PaperPort for around 20 years on every version of Windows since Windows 95. With the Windows 10 release date coming up in two days, I thought it would be worthwhile to document my experience with PaperPort on the Windows 10 Technical Preview, including some tips for successful deployment on W10.

First, my experience with the various builds along the way: I did not install PaperPort on the initial Windows 10 Technical Preview of Build 9841, released on 30-Sep-2014. But I installed on every build after that, from 9860 through the current 10240. The platform is physical hardware, not a virtual machine. It is a relatively old laptop with mediocre specs by today's standards:

Intel Core2 Duo T9300 2.50GHz
4GB RAM DDR2 PC5300
Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB (with the read performance firmware upgrade

@Andrea Great thanks for the register solution of PaperPort. Already contacted support, but so far no answer. But after three days searching solved the problem. Yeah I'm happy

I have version 14.5   (14.5.15168.1450)
BUILDID PP-1313-011-15264.1154

Windows 10 Pro version 1709

Used the downloads from this topic include the patch. After install changed the register.  The button "get latest updates" don't work. I use Firefox as well Chrome (standard browser)

And as you mentioned the best buy I ever did to manage my PDF files as well.

Hi Marco,
Thanks for joining Experts Exchange today and reading my article — Welcome Aboard! As my PP14.5/Patch1 article shows, your BUILDID of PP-1313-011-15264.1154 means that it is PaperPort 14.5 Standard (retail) with Patch1 installed — good news!

> The button "get latest updates" don't work.

Yes, that's the main reason that I wrote the Patch1 article, i.e., because the Common Software Update Manager often does not work. I'm glad that the direct download of Patch1 did work for you. Regards, Joe

PaperPort
I. Introduction

In a previous article (now deprecated), I discussed how to upgrade — at no cost for licensed users — Nuance's PaperPort Version 11 (hereafter, PP11) and PaperPort Version 12 (PP12) to the latest "point" releases, namely, 11.2 and 12.1. At the time of that article's publication, PP11 and PP12 were the two latest versions. Now the latest version is PP14 (yes, Nuance was superstitious and skipped 13), and its latest "point" release is 14.5.

I decided that adding PP14 to the previous article would result in a long, unwieldy article. In addition, a user of one version is not going to be concerned about the other two versions, so I decided to create three separate articles for PP11, PP12, and PP14 users. This is the PP14 one.

The earlier point releases of PP14 — 14.0, 14.1, 14.2 (there was not a public release for either 14.3 or 14.4) — are known to have bugs that were fixed in 14.5. This article provides links to 14.5, as well as other useful information on upgrading.

II. Comparison of Standard and Professional Editions

For PP14, there are two consumer editions – Standard and Professional. The feature comparison matrix is available in the Files section of this PaperPort wiki:

You're right!  It's NAPS2.  I may try to fix Paperport later, but it's taken me so much time that I need a break from it.  The NAPS2 was easy and meant the immediate need that I had in scanning a document.

Thanks again for all your help and support!
