    MODI and Windows 10

    Hi all

    I used to have a beaut little app when I was on Win 7. It was Microsoft Office Document Imaging, and it was brilliantly useful. You could scan documents as TIFFs and OCR read them with MODI. I recently transferred the MODI folder from another machine on which MODI still works (and which also had the Win 10 upgrade, from Win 7) to a newer laptop which had previously been Win 8.1.

    A popup on the new machine informs me "Win 10 is not yet configured to run this program" or words to that effect.

    Any thoughts as to how to "configure" Win 10 to run MODI?

    MODI and Windows 10

    OK, there being no replies I'm going to assess there's either no expertise or no interest out there.

    For passing readers hoping for help themselves, I found this and (am using OneNote as my OCR facility on my newer laptop):

    Hello ausgumbie,

    Read your post about MODI, a wonderful little tool indeed, that I'm missing now in Windows 10, but only on my new X64 machine. In Windows 10 32 bits (Home/Pro) there is NO problem whatsoever using MODI

    Strange thing though, in X64 when you start the App from the desktop or Appview it does open a blank Image Viewer-screen as we know it.
    When you navigate and select any .tif or .tiff file, it does open just like in W7 and other previous OS-ses !
    And you can use the OCR still too on the edited page, even save it after OCR has scanned the document.

    This suggests there should be some registertweaks that can make it work to open a particular file with MODI straightaway in X64 machines as well, but I'm no nerd at that kind of sports

    Unfortunately, as you mentioned, there seems to be little interest for this nice little toy

    Thank you for your suggestions in OCR ! I wonder , what OCR program do you use these days in W10 ?

    I know this is an old post, but since it sits at the top of results on the search engine I use I'm guessing there are still some people interested in this topic.

    With regards to MODI on W10 64 bit I was able to get the document viewer correctly installed and functioning with W10 64 bit by performing a new install from scratch using Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2007 installer available for free from MS.

    PLEASE NOTE : Prior to performing this install you need to go to Windows Features and enable .NET 3.5 in Windows 10 or you will be prompted to download it during the install. I had an error while enabling the feature but it seems to be enabled and software worked in spite of it.

    To perform the install follow the directions in this article from MS ->

    After the install you probably want to find Microsoft Office Document Imaging in the start menu, R-click on it, choose More, and Run as Administrator. Once you have the application running with Administrator privileges go to the menu and choose Tools/Options select the Other tab and click on the Reset button to make it the default app for TIF and MDI files.

    Hope this helps,
