Configuration

Below are the scanner settings recommended by the Document Imaging Project Team. These settings must be set per-user. Copying the configurations to the 'default' profile may effectively set the settings for all users; however, this is not always the case.

Opening AccuScan through one of the following, Program files:

  • If you are running a 32-bit machine it will be the following folder
    • C:\\Program Files\AccuSystems\AccuScan - Then double click the AccuScan application to launch AccuScan
  • If you are running a 64-bit machine it will be the following folder
    • C:\\Program Files (x86)\AccuSystems\AccuScan - Then double click the AccuScan application to launch AccuScan
