When FineReader (or Hot Folder) is started the following error occurs:
XML parsing failed: line 0 character 0. XML document must have a top level element
XML analysis was unsuccessful: line 0, character 0. XML document should contain the highest level element
Third-party software could corrupt some XML files of the program.
In order to solve the issue do the following:
- Delete the content of the following folders:
- fineUI.CommonSettings.XML from the folder C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\ABBYY\FineReader\<version>
(for PDF Transformer: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\ABBYY\PDFTransformer)
- Launch the application anew.

Can you please check the validity of this information?
Hello Pit H,
Thank you for your comment!
I edited the article to make the instruction shorter and convenient. The path is the following C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\ABBYY\FineReader and you can copy it and paste to Windows Explorer address line.
Works for me. But make sure you backup your Hot Folder tasks before deleting the contents of the FineReader directory...
