OCR doesn't work with WINDOWS 7 and my Lexmark X5650es printer

I recently changed from Windows XP to Windows 7 and have issues when trying to create a PDF or Scan and Edit text (OCR) so it can be edited. When I try to create a PDF OR Scan and Edit a doc (OCR), I receive an error message that reads in both instances, "An image-to-text (OCR) application is provided for you on your CD in the OCR folder. Install your OCR software and try your operation again." I have used the CD to try installing the OCR, but the selection is grayed out. My boyfriend had trouble loading the program from the CD last night onto Windows 7, so he downloaded the software from the Lexmark website. Problem is, it's still not working correctly. Can you provide any links or information so I can resolve this issue? I have school projects due and I'm running out of time.. THANKS!

    I apologize for the delay, but wanted to let you know that I appreciate the answer/solution provided. I was able to resolve the issue in a different fashion though (too complicated to explain), but again, the effort to help is very much appreciated.

    This forum is awesome and I plan to use it again if and when I encounter any future issues! :-)

hi i thing your software is corumpt and you nead to reinstall it. when you buy your printer you have the cd whit it. but if you don't find it you cant download the torrent of ocr

bye and good look

SOURCE: ocr folder

The software you need is Abbyy Sprint OCR. If it's not installed, I suggest running the printer setup again, making sure it's selected when you get to the software list. Perhaps you unchecked the box when you ran the installation the first time, or didn't know what it was and uninstalled it from your computer. You may be able to find it by hunting through the CD, but it will probably be easier to run the setup again.

If it truely has an optical character reader(OCR) built into the scaner it would not provide the software for it since the software is rather a large program an cost in excess of $100 just by itself. Link to you model support page below:

    The only way you can install the Lexmark scan software (OCR) is by using the installation cd. It's not available for download on the internet. If your computer is not recognizing the installation cd, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to request for that. They can send you one for free. Hope this helps.

    The Lexmark OCR scan software is available in the installation disk only. Insert the disk in your computer to install the software. You can also manually install it. Insert the disk in your computer > open My Computer/ Computer> right click on the disk Drive for the Lexmark installer > Explore (XP)/ Open (Windows 7). Open the OCR folder and execute the Setup application. Just finish the installation.
    If you don't have the disk or you lost it, feel free to contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

    Lexmark x6650 don't scan using windows 7


    Did you upgrade the Lexmark driver for Windows 7?
    If you already installed the lexmark driver for windows 7, chances are you have not upgraded the utilities software like scanner, fax, OCR
    If that is the case, go to this link:
    http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=recommendedDownloads&locale=en&productCode=LEXMARK_X6650&segment=DOWNLOAD&userlocale=EN_US#1
    First of all, read about Upgrade to Windows 7. by clicking on the link at the top of the page and follow the procedure.
    You have to uninstall the Driver first, then OCR, Fax, Toolbar etc separately

    Then come back to the previous page, Choose your op system as Microsoft windows7 and download the recommended file and install
    as per instructions

    Hope this will work for you
    Good luck
