Vpn gate for android. The full version of ScanSoft OmniPage might have passed its, but there's still plenty to commend 4 SE. Accuracy is up there with the best.
It wasn't 100 per cent in our tests, but it wasn't far off. Standard fonts - Times New Roman, for instance, copied perfectly, and formatting, such as bold or italics, survived the process. We were impressed with OmniPage's document handling - badly-scanned, skewed pages were all automatically righted before being processed. OmniPage automatically zones your pages, recognising areas of text and images reasonably well, although some tables - such as a feature table from PC Pro - failed to register properly.
If this happens, you can always re-zone the page manually, although this is pretty painful if you have a multi-page document. We also appreciate the inclusion of various enhancement tools, which allow you to alter your scan qualities, such as brightness, contrast and saturation - perfect if OmniPage is struggling with old or damaged documents. So what does the full version of OmniPage offer that this doesn't? Irritatingly, some options can be clicked on, only for a pop-up box to tersely inform you that only the full version of OmniPage supports them. For instance, you can't create your own workflow, so you're stuck with the standard scan-recognise-save steps. Version 4 SE also lacks folder watching, so you can't set up a folder to automatically be scanned and processed. But for less frequent jobs, OmniPage offers superb accuracy and good speed, besides being very straightforward to use.
Just bought a nice new 'Vista Compatible' printer from Canon that came with OmniPage SE 4. Unfortuntely, the version of OmniPage that comes on the CD is NOT Vista compatible and fails to launch. Nuance posted an update to their OmniPage SE 4 that is supposed to be Vista compatible. However, if you install it with the previous version still installed, you get an error message stating that the previous version needs to be uninstalled first. If you uninstall it, the next attempt it tells you that the new software is an update and that the previous version has to be installed!?!?! Their tech note says to do the uninstall but not to reboot the computer. The subsequent installation still cannot 'see' the previous version so it still bombs.
Best of luck on getting Nuance to help unless you want to pay them for a support call (or even email). It's not critical enough for me to chase down, but there have been times when I have needed OCR but not often enough to spend the money for a full version. All other info I have seen says that Canon will refer you to Nuance for support. Anyone found any work-arounds or had any luck getting this software to fly? Hi, It seems that the root cause of the issue is related to software itself.
I'd like to suggest you contact with Nuance for advance help. Also, the following website maybe helpful for you: Download Vista-Compiant OmniPage SE for Canon Scanners » My Digital Life Important Note: This response contains a reference to a third party World Wide Web site.

In addition, we’d love to hear your feedback about the solution. By sharing your experience you can help other community members facing similar problems. Regards, Eric Zhang Microsoft Online Community Support. I finally did it! The installation of the update is running right now!
My problem was that I deinstalled the old version as it was stated in the mail that came with the download link from Nuance and then rebooted my system. Known outcome: the update would not install because it couldn't find an earlier version.
Reinstalling the old version, then deinstalling it again and trying to install the update in one step didn't work either. How I solved the problem: 1) I reinstalled the old version. 2) Then I rebooted my system.
3) Next I started the program so that it could initialize (seems to be very important). 4) Then I rebooted again. 5) Now I uninstalled the old version through add/remove programs. 6) DO NOT REBOOT AT THIS POINT!!!! 7) At last I tried to run the autorun.exe that came with the update. Finally worked for me!
I tried it both ways. I called Nuance tech support.
Their response was that if I could not load the new version, I would have to buy the professional version - only $150. The woman who answered did not seem eager to help at all. If I was unable to load the software, then they could not help me. I would just have to buy the professional version - quite a contrast to the crisp, customer-oriented service at Canon. At any rate, if there is a way I can make the new software see traces of my old version, I would appreciate that - perhaps a registry tweak? Hi, I bought a new computer recently that came preloaded with Vista. I have a CanoScan LiDE 20 scanner that i bought back in 2004 for my XP machine.
I tried installing the bundled Omnipage SE into my Vista computer but failed. The InstallShield Wizard dialogue box opens as usual but when i click 'Next' to continue, the page followed said 'The wizard was interrupted before Omnipage SE could be completely installed. Your system has not been modified. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again.' Your recommendation for ChasCotton's problem does not apply to me as my OCR software was published prior to Vista. Therefore, I cannot use the download from Nuance as it requires me to have the software installed and uninstalled. And I cannot even install the software in the first place!
I have even tried with Windows Defender and my anti-virus program's script scanning and spyware detection features disabled. I don't understand why this problem occurs particularly for this program. The other programs such as photo editing tools that came bundled with my scanner were able to load without a snag. I hope you can address my problem.
If the solution(s) involve any tweaking of the registry, I hope you can provide a detailed guide as I'm not familiar with programming. Seems we are all unable to install OmniPage SE update for Vista because; we are unable to install the original bundled W98/XP version of OmniPage SE (required by the Vista update installer) because the original copy is not Vista compatible (which is why we need the update). Now is that a Catch 22 situation or what? I've explained to Nuance (seems there is an 's' missing in the middle of their name) that we are having this problem and I've asked them to post a resolution to this site as their Tech Note #5673 with detailed instructions at does not work. Going by their past history of poor customer service, and charging for it, then suggesting we all spend $150 for an upgrade as an answer, do any of us actually expect a resolution to this problem from them? Anyway I persisted in trying to find an answer to these problems by trawling the www and sure enough there's one out there. Well it worked for me at least, so I thought I'd share pending Nuance's reply.
Go to: It may not work for all, but I have an average Vista set up other than it is a 64 bit system. My own experiences are noted below. From the start, the main issue: Omnipage SE won't install on Windows Vista; it gives an error that says 'The wizard was interrupted before Omnipage SE could be completely installed.' The SE 4 Vista update from Nuance can only be installed if there is a copy of SE already installed. Great programming logic was applied there. Install the latest version of CanonScan Toolbox on your Vista computer. Install OmniPage SE on an XP computer.
Hopefully you can locate/borrow/have one. Copy /Program Files/Scansoft from the XP computer to the Vista computer /Program Files. Link omnipage.exe to the CanonScan Toolbox (32 bit only, see Note 1 below). For those with a 64 bit system, do not link omnipage.exe to the CanonScan Toolbox unless there is a 64 bit driver available for that scanner as it won't work. Don't try to install OmniPage SE 4 update for Vista as it doesn't work if you use the above method to install Omnipage SE. Hoping the above works for you too.
Cheers, GDNZ. Hi GDNZ thanks for your tips! I was stuck with step 5 just now. Anyway i followed your instructions up to step 3 (note that you missed step 4 - oops!:D ) thinking that i won't be able to get my work done today. Frustrated, i double-click on omnipage.exe icon.a window appear 'failed to update system registry.
Try using REGEDIT' and i just clicked ok. One more appear 'unable to launch ms powerpoint', ok again. 'unable to launch ms excel', ok again. Thinking that OmniPage will not run after all.but it works as usual! Good enough even if excel and powerpoint not working, i only need my work save in ms word format.
Hey, many thanks! Really grateful.:) regards vivalim p/s: but i think it can export the text to excel/ powerpoint format as well.
If you are unable to get a set of files from an XP machine, because you are already running vista or windows 7, and if you are willing to manually install the files this may be a solution for you.
