In Kofax Capture server installation in few cases Batchmanager or Admin module crash with error "Cannot load Sbl.dll"

Windows Event Viewer may show a related record, where the Sbl. dll has version


Faulting application name: Admin.exe, version: 11.0.646.0, time stamp: 0x5ca827ec

Faulting module name: sbl.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x373c410f

How can this be resolved?



After some Windows update the above issue has been reported



Go to Control Panel -> regional settings -> Region -> Administrative tab -> change system locale -> then check, if there exists a feature called "Beta Features of UTF-8 encoding of Windows" and if it is checked -> if, yes, uncheck this feature

After restart of the server the issue could not longer be reproduced.
