Paperport 11


Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to create an unattended install of PaperPort 11. All seems to go well till the installer launches setup.msi. I get the error message "Serial number is invalid" even though it's corect.

Install.cmd looks like this:

@Echo Off

ECHO Installing Scansoft PaperPort 11

ECHO Please wait...

REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\PaperPort11\PaperPort.reg

start /wait %systemdrive%\PaperPort11\ISScript10.Msi /qb! ALLUSERS=1

start /wait %systemdrive%\PaperPort11\Setup.msi /qb! ALLUSERS=1


The PaperPort.reg file looks like this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00





Anbody have any ideas?

i see that you are importing the registration info before you launch the setup routine. try importing it but after the setup has finished installing paperport to see if it works now.

also you can try to use a MST file to install it. Search for Wise InstallTailor its free. you launch a msi setup routine, answer all the questions and then save this answer to a MSF file. then you launch the msi using this: setup.msi TRANSFORMS=mstfile.mst /qb /norestart.

hope this helps.

It doesn't matter if I import the registration entry before the install or after.

Also, on the PaperPort11 CD is a tool called MkMst.exe. This will supposedly make the transform file for you. However even this says invalid serial number. What's going on?

Also, the little app you mentioned - InstallTailor - is no longer available. See http://www.appdeploy.com/tools/detail.asp?id=293

Anyone have any other ideas? I've even tried using AutoIt, but the script is unrealiable (it works on some PCs but not others) and it will not run from the network drive for some reason.

Surely it's possible to script PaperPort 11?

Does it matter that I'm using the standard version rather than pro version?
