FineReader PDF 15 update

Question

How can I update FineReader PDF?

Answer

Update on a single PC

All recent products have a built-in update system. To update product follow the steps below:

  1. Start the program on your computer.
  2. Click on Help > Check for Updates

 Update in LAN 

To update FineReader PDF 15 on Workstations (installing updates "over" the installed version), complete the following steps:

  1. Download and extract the files from the distribution kit of the latest version of FineReader PDF 15 (the link) to the folder, which can be reached from the workstation. 
  2. Install FineReader PDF 15 update on workstations from the latest distributive (step 1). You can use one of the supported installation methods (interactive (running setup.exe), command line, using Active directory or SCCM). Updating the administrative installation point is not required. 

You should update the administrative installation point (create it from the latest distribution kit) only if you are going to install the software on a new workstation from this installation point while updating already installed copies of FineReader can be done "over" the existed installations.

Note. Uninstalling the previous version of ABBYY FineReader PDF 15 is not required for installing an update.

    Personally I'd like to see the version number in the download filename. This helps ensure I know what the heck I'm downloading and installing. Example:  ABBYY_FineReader_PDF_15.0.114.4683.exe

    Are the corporate and standard FineReader install files the same?

    Hi John,

    Thank you for your suggestion regarding the name of distribution kit file! I have forwarded it to our R&D department.

    We have different distribution kits for Standalone and Multi-user version. I will create a support ticket in order to process your question further.

    Hi. I've just updated my FT12 to FR15 .

    Should I delete the old installations of FR9 and FR12 now?

    Hello bobR,

    Every FineReader version works independently from others, so you can remove old versions from your PC using standard Windows methods. If you purchased FineReader 15 as upgrade then you can use the previous version only on the same PC (cannot install it on another one).
