Remotely Close Capture Modules without Login

307815

Question / Problem: 

How to close capture modules on a remote machine without login into the system.

Answer / Solution: 

Out of the box, Kofax Capture does not have any method to close the session from a connected workstation.

In order to disconnect the remote machine from KC server it is possible to use the remote task manager and kill the processes associated with KC modules. 

In order th script this task for all the modules and on multiple workstations the command can ce launched from the command prompt in the following way:

Syntax:    taskkill /S   <IP or Hostname>   /u  <User with Privileges>  /IM  <Process name>

C:\Users\Administrator>taskkill /S 172.x.x.x /u Administrator /IM admin.exe

C:\Users\Administrator>taskkill /S 172.x.x.x /u Administrator /IM ops.exe

C:\Users\Administrator>taskkill /S 172.x.x.x /u Administrator /IM index.exe

C:\Users\Administrator>taskkill /S 172.x.x.x /u Administrator /IM export.exe

 

{If the process is running as a service it might be restarted automatically - in that case you need to remotely stop the service}
