Error when Logged in to Windows with limited user privileges

Dec 16, 2009 at 12:37 PM


I receive an error when performing ocr on an image file when I am logged in to Windows with limited user privileges. I have tried the multiple ways to OCR like the RecognizeToString(), RecognizeToFile() and also by specifying the TempFile but with no success. Is this a known problem? Is there a way around it?

Looking forward for a working solution.

Hello Codie,

  Unfortunatelly there's currently no work around this issue. Recognition COM server can't work with restricted permissions.

Hi Maxim,

Thank you for the quick reply.

I solved the problem for now by giving MODIFY permissions to "Authenticated Users" on the folder in which the supporting COM DLLs are located.

Hope it helps someone.

Best Regards
