    OCR Software

    Hope this is the correct place to post this.

    Does anyone have any experience with OmniPage Pro 12? I have tried various ways to install it with XPP. I can get the scanner configured but that is all the farther I can go. I have tried 3 different ways of installing OmniPage Pro 12. I used its install and let it find the previous version and remove it. I have reverted the hard drive twice and uninstalled the previous version before trying the install. Once I answered yes then the second time no to a question about removing some language something or other and all 3 times it said the installation was successful but the program just won

    Thanks Dave.

    I also am running XPP with SP1 installed. My Microtek scanner is also attached to an USB port. I can get as far as configuring the scanner but still OmniPage 12 Pro will not open even after the scanner has been configured. I still don

    Dave,

    I do not have the Windows XP theme available to me. I don't know why or how to get it.

    Thanks.

    Do a "Help and support and search on "Windows XP theme ", but you need to be on line. There will be a KB list about using Windows XP theme

    Yes, but you can tweak this theme and then save it as a modified theme, see my attachment up above. make the different settings within Display properties, Start menu, Windows Explorer and etc. That is what I have done, but sill in the "XP theme"

    Re: OCR Software

    Thanks. I was going to give that a try but I first want to take note of the settings that I was/am using in the Windows Classic theme and try to duplicate them as close as possible.

    Re: OCR Software

    I got it pretty much the way I want it except for the "Taskbar." Is there a setting I'm missing when trying to change the appearance of the "TaskBar?"

    Thanks.

    Re: OCR Software

    I think you may need a third party to do that. Check out out "Software finds and wants", I think there a few listed there.
