Question / Problem: 

How to Prevent Windows 10 from Flashing a Notification Every Time the Kofax VRS System Tray Icon is Loaded

Answer / Solution: 

In Windows 7 and earlier, when the Kofax VRS System Tray is loaded, a small notification bubble would appear.  In Windows 10, these notifications have been moved to the Notification Bar.  When new notifications appear in the Notification Bar, Windows plays a sound and a pop up, which is considerably more fanfare than in previous versions of Windows.

To prevent Windows 10 from displaying a notification every time the Kofax VRS System Tray icon is loaded:

  1. Run VCDemo.exe
  2. Load a Scan Source "with SVRS" or "with VRS"
  3. After the Kofax VRS Elite notification appears, click the Notifications icon in the system tray to open the Notifications Bar.
  4. Right-click the Kofax VRS Elite notification and select Turn off notifications for VIVApplication
  5. The Kofax VRS Elite notification is removed from the Notifications Bar.  The next time a VRS Scan source is loaded, the System Tray icon will load, but no notification will appear.
