Recognition Server 4 specification

ABBYY Recognition Server on the single computer

  • PC with Intel® Pentium®/Celeron®/Xeon™/Core™, AMD K6/Athlon™/Duron™/Sempron™/Opteron™ or compatible processor with a minimum clock speed of 2 GHz and 2+ cores.

    Note: It is not recommended to use computers with over 12 cores for ABBYY Recognition Server. In this case, the addition of new cores does not lead to a linear increase in productivity. To further increase productivity, use the processing stations ABBYY Recognition Server, installed on other computers.

  • Operating system: Microsoft® Windows® 10, Microsoft® Windows® 8.1, Windows® 8, Windows Server® 2012 R2 + Desktop Experience, Windows Server® 2012 + Desktop Experience, Windows Server® 2008 R2 SP1 + Desktop Experience, Windows® 7 SP1, Windows Server® 2008 SP2 + Desktop Experience, Windows Vista® SP2
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Hard disk space: 20 MB for installation and 2 GB for program operation *

Important! Productivity of ABBYY Recognition Server is heavily depends on the speed of the disk drive. Despite the fact that the claimed productivity is achieved on standard discs at 7500 rev / min, it is recommended to use faster disks.

  • The account under which the server is running must have read/write permissions to the following registry branches:
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ABBYY
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ABBYY
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 is required for:
    • processing documents, stored at Microsoft SharePoint,
    • exporting processing result to Microsoft SharePoint,
    • working with WEB API of ABBYY Recognition Server
  • Microsoft Outlook 2000 or later (х86) is required for processing and sending e-mail messages via Microsoft Exchange Server and MAPI protocol. Still, you can process and send messages via POP3/SMTP protocol without Microsoft Outlook installed at the computer
  • Internet Information Services (IIS 7 or later) is required for hosting WEB API of ABBYY Recognition Server.
  • Scanner supporting TWAIN, WIA or ISIS is required for Scanning Station work.
  • MSXML6 is required for Scanning Station work.
  • For SharePoint Document library processing and for publishing to SharePoint library you need to use Sharepoint 2010 or SharePoint 2013.
