How do i store Scanner and Printer Settings?

Scanner and printer settings (incl. TIFFMAKER) can be either stored in HKEY_CURRENT_USER or in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. If individual users need to store their settings, they must be stored under HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

To define the storage location for scanner and printer settings in the registry, go to DocuWare Administration General – Miscellaneous – General Settings – Storing Scanner and Printer Settings.

The default location is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

If TIFFMAKER is running in Server Mode, the settings cannot be stored in HKEY_CURRENT_USER since the Server cannot access this section.

If you change the location to store scanner and printer settings while TIFFMAKER is active, the previous storage location will at first be retained. Only after re-starting your computer TIFFMAKER will write these settings into the new location in the Registry. The same behaviour applies for ACTIVE IMPORT as well.

When you start the Viewer from within DocuWare, the printer and scanner settings are read from the organization settings.
If however you start the Viewer as a separate application without DocuWare, the default printer and scanner settings are read from HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
