With the AutoOCR installation from version 1.15.3, modified installation prerequisites are checked – if these are fulfilled, these installation steps are skipped by the setup and are not executed.
The following components are checked and, if necessary, post-installed:
- C++ 2010 Runtime 64bit
- C++ 2010 Runtime 32bit
- iOCR – Is now installed as vsOCR to C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Common Files \ MAYComputer \ vsOcr – (~270MB)
If these components are already installed, they are not reloaded and only AutoOCR is installed. If all or individual components are not available or not in the appropriate version, the AutoOCR Setup tries to download them from our FTP server and install them. If an installation is to be made without an Internet connection, the setups of these components should be downloaded and installed beforehand.
The AutoOCR settings and the license are retained when uninstalling / updating the new version.
AutoOCR can be operated with one or more different OCR engines. The iOCR (vsOCR) processing is standard.
In addition, or even only, the Abbyy OCR for AutoOCR can be used as an option. However, an additional Abbyy setup must be downloaded and installed. For the Abbyy OCR Engine version 10 demo licenses are available for 30 days or 500 pages – which you can request from us.
If only the Abbyy OCR engine is to be used, the download and installation of iOCR can be skipped during setup.
