Question / Problem:

Kofax Capture panel display settings for several modules are not retained after users exit the modules and log back in.

Can this be resolved via a login script or some other means?

Answer / Solution:

Yes. (This article applies to the default panels available in Kofax Capture.)

Panel settings are stored in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Kofax Image Products\Ascent Capture Registry hive. Under this Key, there are settings for each module, for example, Ascent Capture - Administration, Ascent Capture - Verification, etc. Within each of these keys are Capture-Barn keys where "n" ranges from 0 to a module-specific value (usually under 20).

This example demonstrates how to enable and disable the Batch Contents panel in Validation via .REG files.

To enable the Batch Contents panel:

  1. Create a .REG file and open it in a text editor, such as Notepad.
  2. Copy and paste the following line:
    • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Kofax Image Products\Ascent Capture\Ascent Capture - Validation\Capture-Bar8]
      "Visible"=-
  3. Save this file and import it.
  4. Confirm that the Contents panel displays in Validation.

To disable the Batch Contents panel:

  1. Create a .REG file and open it in a text editor, such as Notepad.
  2. Copy and paste the following line:
    • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Kofax Image Products\Ascent Capture\Ascent Capture - Validation\Capture-Bar8]
      "Visible"=dword:00000000
  3. Save this file and import it.
  4. Confirm that the Contents panel no longer displays in the Validation module.

Please Note the following:

  • When importing .REG files, any values that already exist in the Registry but not in the .REG file WILL BE RETAINED. Therefore, to remove the key, a dash ("-") must be used in the .REG file to remove the value.
  • The value of the Visible key is disregarded. Its presence alone dictates whether or not the panel is displayed.
