Imprinter settings in scanner driver overwritten by imprinter settings defined in Kofax Capture batch class settings


Question / Problem: 

When scanning in Kofax Capture 10.x and 11.x, any changes made by the user to the scanner driver's imprinter settings are overwritten by the imprinter settings defined in the batch class settings.

Answer / Solution: 

By default, when scanning in Kofax Capture, the imprinter settings defined in the batch class will override any changes that the scan operator may make to the imprinter settings in the scanner driver. This behavior is considered to be "as-designed" as this behavior allows Capture to populate the imprinter string with values derived from Capture macros.

Fix Pack 2 for VRS 5.1.1 introduced a switch that determines whether the imprinter settings are defined by the batch class settings or by the scanner driver. This switch applies to all scan jobs on the scan station and is not limited to a particular batch class.

To grant control of the imprinter to the scanner driver:

  1. Upgrade to Kofax VRS 5.1.1
  2. Install Fix Pack 2 or higher for Kofax VRS 5.1.1
    Kofax Capture 11.0 installs Kofax VRS by default, so Kofax Capture 11.0 users can skip the previous two steps.
  3. Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Kofax\Vrs
  4. Create a new text file called ModConfig.ini if one does not already exist.
  5. Open ModConfig.ini in a text editor such as Notepad.
  6. Add the following:


  7. Save the changes to ModConfig.ini

  8. Restart any processes and/or services that use Image Controls.
