Deploying ABBYY FineReader 14 in a LAN (installation on more than one computer)

ABBYY FineReader 14 can be installed and used on a local area network.

The automated installation methods give you speed and flexibility when installing ABBYY FineReader 14 on a local area network, as you do not have to install the program manually on each individual workstation.

ABBYY FineReader can be deployed from any computer running under Microsoft® Windows® 7 (or later).

The deployment process comprises the following steps:

  1. Performing an Administrative installation
    • Installing ABBYY FineReader 14 License Server and ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager
      For detailed instructions, see Installing the License Server and the License Manager.
      Note. The computer on which ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager is installed becomes a License Administrator Station.
    • Creating an administrative installation point
      For detailed instructions, see Creating an administrative installation point.
      Note. You can change the network connection settings used by the License Server, the License Manager, and the workstations. For details, see How can I change the network connection settings?
      Note. The administrative installation point and the License Server can be located either on the same computer or on different computers.
  2. Managing the licenses
    Licenses are managed by means of the ABBYY FineReader 14 License Manager.
    For the licenses to be correctly distributed among the workstations when installing ABBYY FineReader 14, you must give certain workstations priority in obtaining certain licenses. For this purpose, reserve licenses and pools of licenses for certain workstations.
    A license pool is a set of licenses of the same type. Pools make it easier to manage licenses: for example, you can add multiple licenses to a pool and then reserve the pool for specific workstations instead of reserving each license individually.
    For details, see Managing Licenses.
  3. Installing ABBYY FineReader on workstations using one of the following methods:

Note. The 32-bit version of ABBYY FineReader 14 cannot be installed on a 64-bit system. The same is true for the 64-bit version on a 32-bit system.

Do not place the License Server into the same folder with the administrative installation point.
