QAID # 20358 Published

Question / Problem:

How can I ensure that Kofax Capture-generated PDF files do not have JBIG2 compression enabled?

Answer / Solution:

KC 9

  1. Make sure you are using Kofax Capture 9 ServicePack 3, Fix Pack 9 or higher.
  2. Make sure you are using Kofax Virtual ReScan 5.1 or higher.
  3. Add the following line to the ACConfig.XML file:
    <ACConfig>
        ...
        ...
        <PDF_Compression_Settings jbig2_compression_off="1"/>
    </ACConfig>

KC 10.0

  1. Make sure you are using Kofax Capture 10, Service Pack 2 or higher.
  2. Make sure you are using Kofax Virtual ReScan 5.1 or higher.
  3. Add the following line to the ACConfig.XML file:
    <ACConfig>
        ...
        ...
        <PDF_Compression_Settings jbig2_compression_off="1"/>
    </ACConfig>

KC 10.1, 10.2

  1. Make sure you are using Kofax Virtual ReScan 5.1 or higher.
  2. Add the following line to the ACCONFIG.XML file:
    <ACConfig>
        ...
        ...
        <PDF_Compression_Settings jbig2_compression_off="1"/>
    </ACConfig>

Notes:

  • If PDF Generator is running as a service, the service has to be restarted after making the above addition.
  • The ACConfig.XML file is normally located in the \CaptureSV folder.
    Navigate to the folder using the UNC path:
    \\<Server_Name>\CaptureSV\Config\
    or
    C:\Program Data\Kofax\Capture\Config.
