Topics included in this document include the following: Documentation Installing/Uninstalling the Software Notes ============= DOCUMENTATION ============= Readme File ----------- The Readme file is Readme.txt (this file). This file may be found in the Imaging folder on the CD containing the Imaging for Windows software. During installation, it is copied to the folder where the software is installed. Read this file carefully before attempting to install the Imaging for Windows software. Getting Started Guide --------------------- After installation, the Getting Started Guide, GSTRTGD.PDF, is located in the Documentation folder where you installed Imaging for Windows. To view and print the Getting Started Guide, download Adobe's Acrobat Reader (version 5.0 or later) from www.adobe.com. Online Help ----------- Imaging for Windows contains extensive online help support. From the main application window, selecting the help menu or pressing F1 displays the help contents. All the other dialog windows in the Imaging application have context-sensitive help. Click on the question mark (?) icon on the right side of the dialog's title bar, then click on any field in the dialog for help. OCX Help -------- After installation, the Imaging for Windows OCX help file, imgocxd.hlp, is located in the folder where you installed Imaging for Windows. Developer's Guide ----------------- The Imaging Developer's Guide, DevGuide.pdf, is located on the release media. ===================================== Installing/Uninstalling the Software ===================================== Imaging for Windows may be installed on Windows 98SE, Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a, Windows 2000 or Windows XP Service Pack 1. You must be a local administrator to install the software. To install Imaging for Windows on a system where another version of Imaging for Windows resides, you should uninstall the other version before installing this version of Imaging for Windows. Not uninstalling other versions may cause unexpected results to occur in Imaging. For additional information, refer to the Getting Started Guide, GSTRTGD.PDF, located in the CD's root folder. To view and print the Getting Started Guide, you must have Adobe's Acrobat Reader. You may download this from www.adobe.com. Installation Notes ------------------ Imaging for Windows 2.8 installs in its own directory. Silent mode installs exist for both the base Imaging for Windows and Imaging 1.x Server Access components. If setup.exe is invoked with the "-s" switch, the install will execute without prompting the user. Before running the 1.x Server Access silent install, modify setup.iss with the proper Server Address for your 1.x Server. The Server Address is the machine's IP Address and port number. WMS Imaging software is not supplied with Imaging for Windows. However, Imaging for Windows may access WMS Imaging data if WMS Client Components are installed on the system. Imaging for Windows 2.8 works with WMS Client Components version 6.0 or later. To retain the Standard OCR training file for future usage, copy or rename the standard training file before uninstalling an Imaging release. After installing Imaging for Windows, copy the previously saved standard training file into the Imaging directory. Changes made to custom training files are retained. User-defined defaults for Imaging for Windows are lost when installing new versions of Imaging for Windows. If the user has defined rubber stamps, for example, they are lost and must be recreated in Imaging for Windows. Upgrading a Windows 98 system with Imaging for Windows installed to Windows 2000, requires a re-installation of Imaging for Windows. Some components may appear to operate, but some of the Imaging for Windows functionality is inaccessible. The Imaging 1.x Server Access Installation is only required once per system. On a Windows NT, 2000, or XP system, the installation must be executed by a person with Administrator rights. As a result, all users on a system will access the same 1.x server(s). Un-install Notes ---------------- On Windows NT, 2000, or XP, the uninstall procedure only clears the Imaging preferences and settings for the user who uninstalls Imaging for Windows. You must be a local administrator to uninstall the software. ===== NOTES ===== TIFF JPEG Support ----------------- When saving images in the TIFF file format with JPEG compression, it is optional to save the data following the TIFF 6.0 specification Technical Note #2. This TIFF JPEG format is part of the preliminary TIFF 7.0 specification. TIFF JPEG 6.0 without Technical Note #2 remains the default format. TIFF File Association on Windows XP ----------------------------------- To enable Imaging to start and display a TIFF file when you click on it in Windows Explorer, associate Imaging with the file type TIFF. In Windows Explorer, go to the 'File Types' tab of the Tools->Folder Options dialog. To link all extensions associated with "TIF Image" files, click Advanced. When the Edit File Type dialog appears, select Open, and click Edit. Enter the fully qualified path name for Imaging.exe followed by "%1". Please notice that the quotes should be included. So, the path should be similar to: c:\Program Files\Imaging.exe "%1". Click OK. To associate only a particular extension with Imaging, click Change. When the Open With dialog appears, select IMAGE VIEWER from the list, and click OK. Development Component Names --------------------------- The names of the Custom Controls for Development Container Environments (e.g. VB) changed from the previous version. The OCX names and the SAO component names no longer contain 'Kodak', i.e. "Kodak Image Admin Control". In Visual Basic these names are displayed in the ‘Projects->Components...' and 'Projects->References...' dialogs for adding controls and references into your Visual Basic project. The new descriptive names are the following: Image Admin Control Image Scan Control Image Thumbnail Control Image Edit Control Image Annotation Control Image OCR Control Image Server Access Object For the latest product information and/or updates please refer to the eiStream Imaging for Windows Support area of the eiStream web site, www.eiStream.com.
