Is it possible to replace the sample images from a CAB file?



CAB file are files created in Kofax Administration of the Exported Batch Classes. The CAB file is a compress file that can be edited. 



1- You cab unpack the old batch class and remove the old sample images and replace them. The CAB file is a archive file from Kofax so you will need to use the proper tools

In order to remove the space this is what you need to do:

  • Expand the "" using Winzip or 7-Zip
  • It should look like the following image
  • Once Expanded go then go to the "Samples" folder and replace the image
  • After to archive the file you will need to use Kofax Archive tool "C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\CaptureSS\ServLib\Bin\kfxcabar.exe"
  • Open an elevated cmd and navigate to that location an do the following:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\CaptureSS\ServLib\Bin>kfxcabar B "C:\customers\BatchClasssample" "C:\customers\BatchClasssample"

  • It should create the new .CAB file with new samples
  • You should able to import it with the new generic images anywhere

Also here is more detail on the Kofax tool KFXCABAR.EXE:

Usage: KfxCabAr X CABFileName Dir1 [Dir2] ...

Where X = E for expand, B for Build.

Where CABFileName is the cabnet base file name, i.e. no extension.

 Dir1 is the first directory to recurse through,...

 Dir2 or greater is not valid when X = E.

 e.g. KfxCabAr B c:\Test\Test d:\TextExport
