Kofax WebCapture reports the following error after completing scanning:

 VRS License is missing or invalid



This was determined to be due to an issue within the internal VRS image processing code, and is not reflective of a true licensing issue.

The following hotfix has been created for Kofax Web Capture 11.0, 11.1 and11.2:



Fixing Deployed Applications

Customers who have installed the Web Capture Plugin via Kofax.WebCapture.Installer.msi and/or Kofax.WebCapture.macOS.pkg on client machines can update their client machines by running the installer from the hotfix.

In some deployments such as shared machines where Kofax.WebCapture.Installer.msi was installed as a system service, it may require that a systems administrator perform the upgrade.

Installing for Enterprise / Multiple-User Environments

If you are installing the Web Capture Service on a machine that multiple users log into (Remote Desktop) then you will need to install the Web Capture Service as a system service instead of per user.

If it's already installed, you will first need to uninstall the Web Capture Service from the machine.

To install as a system service, install using the command line (as administrator):

msiexec /I Kofax.WebCapture.Installer.msi INSTALLASSERVICE=1

Update the SDK

To update the SDK, find the WebResources folder, usually:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Atalasoft\DotImage 11.2\bin\WebResources\WebCapture\

and replace the following files with the hotfix versions:

Kofax.WebCapture.macOS.pkg (11.1 and 11.2 only)

The Hotfix files should replace the same files within the WebResources\WebCapture folder within your ASP.NET solution.
