Watch our video on how simple it is to install ABBYY FlexiCapture Standalone!
Hello. Today I’m going to show you how to install ABBYY FlexiCapture Standalone. Now the first thing I’d like you to do is to review the installer. So download the installer from ABBYY if you’re not aware of where that location is, please let us know. But on this installer, I want you to notice a couple things. I want you to notice that it’s labeled with FC11 meaning it’s FlexiCapture version 11. It has an R4, which tells you, which release number it is and then it also has a built number. The first thing we’re going to do is double click on it. Realize that it wants to send us to a destination folder. This is where it’s going to temporarily extract files for its use during the install process, so it’s not a big deal. All we need to do is accept the default and we can install here.
This process is going to take just a while so just be prepared to kind of wait while it extracts these files. But it will make progress here very quickly and then we can begin the install process.
The very first thing that happens after those are extracted is the installer pops up for us. What we are going to do is move our mouse up and select the standalone installation. That will begin the installer, we’ll select English for the default for this demo and then we’ll walk through the installer here. So once the installer’s fully loaded, we can accept the license agreement, hit next. We’ll enter information that is relevant to our organization and then we have a choice to make here. For this demo, we’re going to select the administrator and operator stations. In the real world, you would select whichever one is appropriate for you. The administrator station is where we do all the nitty gritty with the product. We create and test projects, where the operator station is really just meant for real world operations such as capturing documents and verifying them.
From here we can hit next. We select the default location. You can also change where the product gets installed and then we’ll begin the install of the product. This will take just a little while as well, so just be prepared to wait here just a second as this goes through.
Now we can click finish and we will exit the installer. The very first thing we need to do after installing the product is going into our start menu and select the license manager. Within the license manager, you want to activate a license that you’ve been provided by either ABBYY var or ABBYY itself and then go through the activation process. We’re going to go ahead and skip that and assume that we have it. The next thing you have, you are ready to begin use of the software. That is done by using the administration station where we create and test our projects.
