If you are not logged on as an administrator, you are prompted for the password of an administrative account during the installation. 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 in Imaging. For additional information, refer to the Getting Started Guide, Getting Started.PDF, located in the Documentation folder on the release CD. Installation Notes ------------------ Imaging for Windows 4.0 is installed in its own directory (c:\program files\common files\global 360\imaging). The product documentation and samples will be installed based on a selection made during the installation of the software (c:\program files\global 360\imaging\ is the default location). On a localized version of the operating system, a reference to "c:\program files" may be displayed in the installation user interface. However, should the Program Files directory have a different name, the installation files will be placed in the correct location within that directory. If Imaging for Windows 4.0 was previously installed on this computer, the installation procedure may prompt you for the serial number you received when you purchased the product. The message “The serial number provided is not valid for single user license” may indicate that you entered a valid serial number but used the wrong format. Repeat the installation steps to correct the problem. Be sure to type the serial number exactly as you received it and do not enter any spaces. Silent mode installation is possible. See Chapter 2 of the Getting Started Guide, Getting Started.PDF, for details. To retain OCR training files for future usage, copy or rename the training files before uninstalling an Imaging release. After installing Imaging for Windows 4.0, copy the previously saved training files into the Imaging directory (c:\program files\common files\global 360\imaging). 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. The Imaging Server Access (1.x) IP address and port number are recorded at the machine level, not at the user level. As a result, all users on a system will access the same 1.x server(s). Un-install Notes ---------------- On Windows Vista, Windows XP, or Windows 2000, the uninstall procedure clears only the Imaging preferences and settings for the user who uninstalls Imaging for Windows. ===== NOTES ===== Displaying PDF Documents ------------------------ After displaying a PDF document page in landscape orientation, you may not be able to scroll to the bottom of the previous or next page if it is in portrait orientation. Change the zoom value to allow scrolling. When a PDF document page is zoomed out beyond Best Fit and then Fit to Width is chosen, necessary scrollbars may not appear. Changing the zoom value allows the scrollbars to activate. TIFF File Association --------------------- To enable Imaging to start and display a TIFF file when you click it in Windows Explorer, associate Imaging with files of type .tif and .tiff (TIF and TIFF in Windows XP and Windows 2000). If you use Windows Vista, follow these steps: 1. Start Control Panel and navigate to Programs > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program. If in Classic View, begin navigation with Default Programs. 3. In the list of registered file types, select .tif. 4. If the Current Default is not IMAGE VIEWER click Change program and select IMAGE VIEWER from the list. If IMAGE VIEWER does not appear, click Browse and navigate to c:\program files\common files\global 360\imaging\imaging.exe. You will then be able to select IMAGE VIEWER from the list. 5. Repeat these steps for the .tiff extension. If you use Windows XP or Windows 2000, follow these steps: 1. Start Windows Explorer and go to the File Types tab of the Tools > Folder Options dialog box. 2. In the list of registered file types, select TIF. 3. If the value for 'Opens with' is anything other than IMAGE VIEWER and if the Restore button is available, click Restore. If IMAGE VIEWER is not restored, click Change and choose IMAGE VIEWER from the list. If it is not in the list, click Browse and navigate to c:\program files\common files\global 360\ imaging\imaging.exe. Once IMAGE VIEWER is listed, you can choose it as the default application. 4. Repeat these steps for the TIFF extension. For the latest product information, visit the Global 360 Web site at www.global360.com.
