On February 1 of this year, Kofax acquired the Document Imaging Division of Nuance, which included OmniPage, PaperPort, and Power PDF. Kofax recently released the first version of PaperPort under its stewardship — Version 14.7 — and is permitting users of a retail version of Nuance PaperPort Professional 14.5 to upgrade to Kofax PaperPort Professional 14.7 at no cost. There is, however, an important caveat, which is documented in my Experts Exchange article:

Free in-place upgrade of Nuance PaperPort Professional 14.5 to Kofax PaperPort Professional 14.7

Please be aware of that caveat before attempting to upgrade to 14.7.

As you can see from its title, the article is about doing an in-place upgrade of 14.5 to 14.7, while this video is about doing an installation on a system where 14.5 is not currently installed, but, of course, still using your 14.5 product serial number to upgrade to 14.7 at no cost.

Video Steps

1. Read my EE article about upgrading

There's an important caveat in there about doing the upgrade, as well as other valuable information that may be helpful prior to watching this video.

2. Download the free trial of PaperPort Professional 14.7

Visit the the Kofax website here:
https://www.kofax.com/Products/paperport/professional-trial-version

Download the installer for the free trial. Beware: it is huge — more than 1 GB!

3. Run the installer

The file downloaded in Step 2 is:

paperport-professional-trial-14-7-0.exe

Run it. It is a self-extracting zip file that will automatically run the installer when it is done unzipping.

4. Respond to all the prompts from the installer

The installation wizard is self-explanatory. Simply respond to all the prompts.

5. Run PaperPort Professional 14.7

After the installation is complete, run PaperPort. It will give you a Product Activation dialog. Activate it by supplying your PP14.5 product serial number.

That's it! You have upgraded to PP14.7 at no cost.
