Adobe has announced the end of life of Adobe Flash effective end of 2020.  In turn Google, Microsoft and Mozilla have announced that their browsers (Chrome, IE, and Firefox) will no longer support Flash at the end of 2020.  All versions of MarkView below version 10.x are dependent on Flash and will be significantly impacted when browsers stop supporting Flash.

If you are able to utilize an older browser version that still supports Adobe Flash, then you may still be able to utilize the MarkView Viewer on versions <= 9.x. To try using an older browser version, you can refer to the instructions available here.

However, If Adobe Flash ceases to work, or if your browser ceases to allow Adobe Flash to work, MarkView users (on version <= 9.x) will not be able to open/view documents in the MarkView Viewer. If that occurs, there is no workaround available, and the only option would be to upgrade to MarkView 10.x.

Please note, MarkView versions 8.x and 9.0 are already passed their Kofax End of Support date.

Customers who are currently running any version of MarkView below version 10.x are advised to upgrade to MarkView version 10.x prior to Flash support ending.

MarkView 10.x has no dependency on Flash. Details on the features of MarkView 10 including is new HTML5 based updated UI are available here.

MarkView 10 Downloads are available here.

MarkView 10 Documentation is available here.
