USB Scanner with VRS
USB scanners ship with a CD containing ISIS and Twain drivers. Some USB scanners are bundled with a CD containing Kofax Virtual Rescan (VRS).
When installing a USB attached scanner, you will need to install the ISIS driver first. It is not necessary to install the Twain driver if you are going to run Kofax software, but there is no harm in doing so. Once the ISIS driver is installed, you can install Kofax VRS if the scanner came bundled with VRS or you purchased VRS separately. During the Kofax VRS installation, you will be prompted to select your
scanner make/model. Be careful to select the correct scanner as this option will automatically create all the entries you need in the Kofax source manager to run your scanner. In years past, you had to
manually create these entries, but now with Kofax VRS these entries are created for you. When Kofax VRS is done installing, you will get a message to reboot your pc. DO NOT REMOVE THE CD FROM
THE DRIVE. Reboot the PC with the CD in the CD rom drive. Once the PC comes back up, you will likely be prompted to check for VRS updates. Once that is complete, you can remove the CD from the
drive. At that time, you can install the RVI PC viewer if you have not done so already.
If the Kofax install was successful, the Kofax sources should have been created automatically for you within the Kofax Admin Console.
Test the scan station within Kofax VRS Test Console to ensure the install was a success and then try testing in the RVI PC Viewer.
