What is VRS Test Application, also known as VCDemo?



VRS Test Application, also known as VCDemo, is a basic testing application that is included by Kofax in all ImageControls and VRS installations. The VRS Test Application can be used to determine if a scanner is properly interfacing with the ImageControls or VRS software. It can also be used as a basic scanning application for low volume scanning.

VRS Test Application can be launched from one of the following locations:
