Can I lower the size of the distribution Kit of ABBYY FineReader Engine?
ABBYY FineReader Engine distribution package contains all files that can be used for different scenarios. If necessary, for example, if the storage space available in your environment is less than the required size of the distribution kit, you can delete the files that are not used for your particular scenario. E.g of a possible scenario: Open all types of image documents, and require a document analysis (to recognize tables, images, barcodes). The recognition language is only English.
The file FREngineDistribution.csv describes all files in Bin64 and the data folder of the ABBYY FineReader Engine distribution. . This file can be found in the Help folder (%ProgramData%\ABBYY\SDK\12\FineReader Engine\Help) after making the Developer installation.
The solution to reducing the distribution package is to create a minimal distribution kit based on the help article "Distribution → Distribution Kit" from ABBYY FineReader engine Developer's help.
