  • Stop the Processing Server
  • Stop the IIS
  • Adjust the FC <connectionStrings> in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\FlexiCapture12\Server\web.config file for using the installed OLE DB driver (
    Example: It should like similar to "Provider=MSOLEDBSQL;Data Source=<SqlServerListenerNameAndOptionalPortNumber>;Initial Catalog=<AbbyyDbName>;Trusted_Connection=<true>;MultiSubnetFailover=True".
    The parameters highlighted in bold are important and need to be changed or added if missing. 
  • Start the IIS
