Installing the ABBYY FineReader Engine Library in Automatic Mode
The runtime installation of the ABBYY FineReader Engine library in automatic mode can be performed only from the command line in silent mode. Run the installRnt32.exe (for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows) or installRnt64.exe (for 64-bit version of Windows) file from the distribution package with the command line options described below.
Important! When installing the library, the registry keys are created in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_LOCAL_USER subtrees.
The path to the folder where the ABBYY FineReader Engine library will be installed.
Important! This parameter is required.
|DeinstallRuntime=Yes | No||No||Specifies if the existing runtime installation of the library must be uninstalled.|
|MODULES=<list of library modules> | None | All||All||
The list of library modules that you want to install. See the list of available modules below. The modules must be separated with commas (,). For example, MODULES=ICR,PDF,BasicLang. If you do not want to install any of these modules, set this option to None. If you want to install all the modules, set this option to All.
|WIBUDR=Yes | No||No||Specifies whether hardware key drivers (CodeMeter) must be installed.|
|LICENSESRV=Yes | No||Yes||
Specifies whether Licensing Service must be installed. If WIBUDR=Yes, the Licensing Service is installed automatically and cannot be excluded from the installation. The Licensing Service is installed to the %ProgramFiles%\Common Files\ABBYY\SDK\12\Licensing folder on a 32-bit operating system, and %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Common Files\ABBYY\SDK\12\Licensing folder on a 64-bit operating system.
Important! Licensing Service is required for working with ABBYY FineReader Engine library, and for correct installation you must do one of the following:
|SERVERNAME=<the DNS name or IP address>||
The DNS name or IP address of the computer where the Licensing Service is installed.
Note: When specifying SERVERNAME, LICENSESRV is automatically set to No.
|LICENSEDATADIR="<destination path>"||The path to the folder where auxiliary information about licensing will be stored. By default, it is the %ProgramData%\ABBYY\SDK\12\Licenses. You may change the folder with this option when performing Runtime installation or after, through the InitializeEngine function.|
|RegisterCOM=Yes | No | Force||Yes||
Specifies whether the COM wrappers should be registered. The registration is performed by calling the DllRegisterServer function from FREngine.dll. If the library is already registered with the different path:
If the MODULES option contains VC or is set to All, the library must be registered. Setting this option to No will cause an error and the installation will not be completed.
Silent mode without a progress bar. This is mandatory option because the runtime installation can be performed only in silent mode. Use the /passive option if you want the progress bar to be displayed during the installation. No other dialog boxes will be displayed.
If these options are not specified, the /passive option is used by default.
|/extract||Specifies whether the ABBYY FineReader Engine files should be extracted from the distribution package to a certain folder without installation. No entries will be made in the Windows registry, services, or package cache. However, the procedure requires administrator rights. Use this option to unpack the ABBYY FineReader Engine files and create your custom package.|
