Cannot install omnipage se. wizard interupts process

  • Anonymous Dec 04, 2008

    I cannot uninstall Omnipage SE - neither via Windows (Vista) remove software, nor with the remover tool that Scansoft provides... It seems to interfere with Internet Explorer, so I would really like to get rid of it!

    I have the same problem. It tells me I need 'permission' to do this. I keep getting annoying pop ups at start up from this software, asking me to register it. Could this be the problem, or would registering it make the problem worse?

When unistalled the previous Omnipage SE 4.0 and try to install new update vresion, an error message keep poping up saying a previous version of Omnipage is still installed in the computer and can not install the new version. No more trace is found for old version in Add/Remove screen. The problems are in the registry area. Just run regedit (export the registry as backup) and look for Scansoft under the software directory. Deleted all the Scansoft omnipage traces then restart the computer will solve the problem.

My Canoscan 4200F has no OCR software. How do I get it?


OCR software is usually a third-party program. Sometimes it is available on the original driver CD but it isn't included in the downloaded driver software. In the case of the CanoScan 4200F, the CD included the OmniPage SE OCR program. The SE indicates a Special Edition only bundled with the scanner and was only available for the OS versions that had been released when the scanner was first available. If you have the original CD (for Win98-XP), try to install the program using the Custom install option. (Check your current OS version. A 32-bit OS is more likely to support the OmniPage SE. With Windows Vista and 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System to determine the version. x64 indicates a 64-bit OS. ) If your current computer doesn't have an optical drive, use an external optical drive to install the program.

If you do not have the CD or your OS is incompatible with the Omnipage version on the CD, you will need to either purchase OmnuPage ($99 with a rebate from many vendors), AbbySoft's OCR program or one of the other OCR programs. SimpleOCR is free for personal use, http://www.simpleocr.com/Info.asp . The biggest problem with the free OCR programs is that they do not handle documents with columns properly.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Can the canoscan lide 70 scan documents to work so they can be edited? Is so how


Yes, but you have to use a special program called an "OCR" (Optical Character Recognizer) which will "read" the document from the scan. A scanner only produces a picture of a document, and it requries special software to "read" that image and make it editable.
The LIDE 70 comes with OMNIPAGE SE (special edition) which will work for simple documents. For more complex documents, you may need to buy the full edition of OMNIPAGE or another OCR package like FineReader. It is also built in fto software like OneNote and Evernote.

Hello I have recently purchased a second-hand CanoScan LiDE 25 scanner and it was accompanied by OmniPage SE Software. The reason for this purchase was to scan research papers for a friend. My experience...


Don't use the OmniPage software for scanning. OmniPage is an OCR (optical character recognition) program and is trying to convert the scan into a document compatible with a text editor (such as Microsoft Word). Use a graphics editing program, and use the option to 'Import' or 'Acquire' an image. Make sure that the LiDE 25 is specified as the scanner, and you should be linked to the scanner interface. Now when the scan is complete, it will be transferred to the graphics editor as an image, not a document.

Impossible to scan additional pages without starting all over


The sole message is "Scanner error"? ... Odd.

I'm not sure what version of OmniPage you're working with. This manual's probably in the ballpark:
ftp://ftp.scansoft.com/files/support/manuals/op15guide.pdf/

It looks like they suggest a different route, a different workflow process -- scan in all your images at once, then handle processing in a batch. I think you do some processing, then try to get the next image. This may have nothing at all to do with your "scanner error," but it's worth a try (and if/when you get the error resolved, this is a smarter way to use your time).

Before you go down that road, though, look for some updates. Some errors are often fixed with updates, and it's worth a try.

Look for updates to OmniPage. I believe you can look through the program itself -- was it Help: Update? You can also look here:
http://support.nuance.com/downloads/

There may also be a somewhat newer driver for your scanner; I don't know; the only drivers there are about a year old. The link:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=119&modelid=15562
Scroll down a bit, click on the Drivers and downloads page.

Please please please let me know if this doesn't work for you. And if it doesn't, if you can write down the exact error message, we can try to find out some more answers. If you just bought it, you may also be eligible for free tech support from Canon and/or OmniPage; I don't know. They'll tell you to follow these same steps as well, I'm sure. =)

Scan and make changes to document later


You need to use OCR. Use the OmniPage Se application that shipped with your scanner.

Communication problem?


Dear CrysC,

I had the same problem with my HP Officejet J5780. I just got it to work with a different paper size.

Don't ask me why this worked, but it did, so I guess that's all that matters.

In Omnipage, I went under the "Tools" menu and clicked on "Options." I then clicked on the tab, "Scanner." I changed the paper size to what I wanted (A 4). I then clicked on "Setup." Despite its recommendations not to do so, I reinstalled my scanner.

After the reinstall, it is now scanning the new paper size.

I hope that I don't have to do this everytime I scan a new paper size...

Good luck!
