*** Archive *** KTA Scan VRS Profile Select does not load Matching VRS Profile prior to scanning

Article # 3026848 - Page views: 133


Question / Problem: 

Selecting a Kofax TotalAgility 7.5.x or higher Scan/VRS profile does not load a matching Kofax VRS profile prior to scanning.

Answer / Solution: 

When scanning from a KTA 7.5 Scan Form, the WebCapture Service does not load the Kofax VRS profile that is named the same as the selected KTA Scan/VRS Profile until the Scan button is clicked.  Therefore, selecting the Scan/VRS Profile in the Scanner Settings screen and then checking the VRS system tray icon for the currently loaded VRS profile prior to scanning is not a valid test for ensuring that the proper VRS profile will be loaded at scan time.

This is the expected behavior and is considered to be "as-designed".


To confirm that the WebCapture Service is loading the VRS Profile that is named the same as the Scan/VRS Profile:

  1. In the Scan Form, select Scanner Settings
  2. Select Kofax Software VRS - TWAIN as the scan source
  3. Select the desired Scan/VRS Profile 
  4. Click OK
  5. Perform a test scan
  6. Right-click the VRS icon in the system tray and select Profiles
  7. Confirm whether the VRS profile that matches the name of the selected Scan/VRS Profile is enabled
