Kofax Transformation Modules 6.4 Latest Version Release Notes
Kofax Transformation Modules (KTM) 6.4.0 Fix Pack 19 | Release Date: September 15, 2023
Problems Resolved in this Fix Pack
1951967: KBLS service crashes after enormous service memory increase. The Knowledge Base Learning Server no longer crashes due to memory issues because improvements were made to memory handling.
Problems Resolved in previous Fix Packs
1966776: Validation is not opening when running in a terminal or Citrix session. To overcome the logging concurrency issue, every module and process now creates its own log file. This makes the Logs Aggregation setting in the Service Configuration Tool obsolete.
1937643: Fix pack installation command brings error when path has a space included. Using a space when installing a fix pack no longer results in an error.
1890998: Security Vulnerability (CVE-2018-1285) log4Net. The log4Net dll version has been upgraded to version 2.0.14.
1839800: Update to newest SAL version for https support. The Kofax Transformation Modules now uses Kofax Sal version 6.5. This version resolves a security issue. To apply the new SAL version, use the updated sample applications and recompile your developed applications.
1891532: Batches stuck in KTM Server due to concurrency logging issue in KTM Server introduced in Fix Pack 13. Batches are no longer stuck in KTM Server due to logging issues.
1883694: PDF Document: Format Locator: Fox-Exception: Index (-1) out of range. The error is no longer encountered in PDF documents using a Format Locator because Unicode NONCHARACTER U+FFFF is no longer included in the extracted text.
1871196: Certain PDF will break in Project Builder as well as in the Validation module when zooming in and out. Increasing and decreasing the magnification of PDF documents no longer causes issues in Project Builder or the Validation module.
1865760: XValues are lost after KTM Server 1 when running it for classification only.
XValues are no longer lost when using multiple instances of KTM Server. If two Server instances (Server1 and Server2) are used for a project and one instance performs classification and the other performs extraction, then the following script sample shows how to copy the XValues so they are available in KTM Server2. The following script sample calls a function from the project script for the Document_AfterClassify and Document_BeforeExtract methods.
1858258: Fuzzy database lookups are not working since Fix Pack 220.127.116.11. There are no longer issues using a fuzzy database for scripted database lookups.
1840840: Real error behind "Cannot open file xyz.txt" error message is hidden. The Windows error is now included in the error message that is displayed to the user.
1783452: Fuzzy database lookup button hides columns if they were not selected for searching. A new setting called Show All Columns is now available when configuring a fuzzy database lookup. When selected, all database columns are displayed in the Database Lookup Window in Validation, even if they are not selected and included in the fuzzy search. This setting is cleared by default.
1819108: Document Review Class List not refreshed when you delete the class name using backspace. The Class List combo box now refreshes when the Backspace key is pressed when filtering the class names.
1818892: Project Builder crashing with structured exception when loading a customer project. Project Builder no longer crashes with an error when loading a specific customer project.
1816583: Page recognition can hang forever under certain circumstances. Page recognition no longer hangs in certain circumstances.
1816365: Project Builder creates new empty ImageCleanupProfile while opening project. Project Builder no longer creates empty image cleanup profiles when saving a project.
1807218: Document Review Class List Behavior Changed in 6.4Document Review Class List Behavior Changed in 6.4. When filtering the list of classes in the Document Review Class List combo box, the entered text filters the text in two ways:
- First, any classes that start with the filtered text appears in alphabetical order in the filtered list.
- Next, any classes that contain the filtered text anywhere in their name are displayed at the bottom of the list, also in alphabetical order.
For example, if you have 5 classes called Invoices, Purchase Orders, Service Orders, Order Forms, and Accounting Orders, and you type ‘order’ in the Class List, the results are as follows:
- Order form
- Accounting Orders
- Purchase Orders
- Service Orders
1782705: When Rotating a Multipage TIFF pages are lost. Pages in a document are no longer lost after the document is rotated to correct its orientation.
1780461: PDF document index is out of range. After an upgrade to PDFIUM the transfer of atypical characters from the PDF document to the extracted text is now prevented, and errors are no longer encountered due to these characters.
1779566: In Document Review, when user enters a value and clicks the down arrow, all class names are being displayed. When a user enters a value in the Class combobox to search for a class and then uses the down arrow to select a class, the full results are no longer displayed. Instead, the entered value filters the class list based on the entered string as expected.
1761847 – Edit Training Document Window Causes Errors. The Edit Training Document window is now displayed as expected each time the window is opened.
1761031 – Document Review Caches Last Keyboard Entered Document Class. The last class entered by the keyboard is no longer cashed when the keyboard focus is lost.
1749306 – Field re-read causes connected words when there are multiple lines. Using the re-read option no longer connects individual words found on two lines because a delimiter is applied.
1729751 – Information incomplete regarding Bug 1670255 – OCR results decreased from FineReader engine. The description of bug 1670255 has been updated to include information about using the necessary script reference.
1718389 – Patch code not correctly recognized. By default, Patch codes should be recognized with the default FineReader recognition settings. However, if FineReader fails to recognize a Patch bar code using the default settings, you can improve the chances of bar code recognition by making use of the UseSpeedRecognition behavior via scripting. If you want to recognize Patch bar codes, you can add the following code to the BeforeLocate event.
1705619 – Multiple selected languages in OmniPage Error: Could not perform recognition due to an internal OmniPage error Bronze2. OmniPage21 has been updated and this issue no longer occurs.
1697743 – ValidationForm_AfterTableRowAdded is not raised when table rows are interpolated.The AfterRowAdded event is now raised each time that table rows are interpolated.
1699794 – Make Omnipage soft timeout configurable. A new Timeout property is available in the MpsPageRecogProfileOmniPage and can be set via script. The Timeout value uses milliseconds for its unit. Use the following syntax example:
1698551 – Report Viewer shows more documents than pages and also negative document count
1682236 – Perform check in Document Review for pending changes before closing a batch. It is no longer possible to close a batch in Document Review without being prompted to save any unconfirmed changes.
1670255 – OCR results decreased from FineReader engine 11.1 to 12.2 in KTM 6.3. It is now possible to use the FineReader “ProhibitModelAnalysis” property in script to improve OCR Results in some cases. This option is available via script only and does not appear on the user interface. The value for this option is set to True by default. When this option is set to False, the recognition engine uses model analysis to improve recognition in some cases. Note: This property can be saved in the project. This means that the script does not need to be executed each time a project is processed. Execute the script from Project Builder and then save the project. The setting is then set when the project is used in production. Use the following script sample to set this option, modifying it for your specific needs.
1669604 – Document Review takes significantly longer to load a 400 pages document, if the image path is on a UNC path. Page updates have been optimized to improve document loading.
1663171 – Failing Datamatrix Bar Code Locator sends batch to Quality Control. If there is an issue recognizing a bar code using the FineReader recognition engine, batches are no longer sent to Quality Control, even when extraction has no results.
1662470 – Local Exception error thrown when OCR is performed with mixed print profile on some images.
1648370 – Mixed Print Recognition Profile Crashes Project Designer and DIC Server On some Images. Project Builder and Server no longer crash when processing a project that uses a Mixed Print Recognition profile.
1667310 – The ValidationForm “Button”‘s “Enabled” Property in Script Does Not Reflect The Button’s Correct Enabled State. The ValidationForm control properties are now properly reflected in script and behave as expected.
1641005 – The ValidationForm Field “Enabled” and “Visible” Properties Are Not Properly Reflected in Script. The ValidationForm control properties are now properly reflected in script and behave as expected.
1663059 – Memory leak when loading the project. Locator methods are now successfully unloaded when a project is closed. Because of this, memory issues no longer occur when a project is closed.
1659362 – Retain Open Batch Windows Position for Dual Monitor Display. When using dual monitors, it is now possible to save the location of the Open Batch window. The next time you open a user module, the window appears in the same location.
1644013 – useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy parameter is missing in some .config files. The useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy property is no longer missing from any configuration files. If the configuration files are not updated for any reason, add the property “useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy=true” to the startup tag for the configuration files in <%ProgramFiles%>\Kofax\CaptureSS\ServLib\Bin and then start the Scheduler service and relaunch the module.
1641004 – Validation Form Button hot key does not work as expected. Buttons and their associated hot keys on the Validation form now work as expected.
1644760 – Licensing Error Causes Server to Stop Processing, “License info is null”. Server no longer stops processing due to a licensing error.
1644682 – ValidationDocking3.xml can get into blocked state after starting many instances of Validation quickly one after the other. It is now possible to successfully open several back-to-back instances of the Validation module from the Batch Manager.
1642967 – Enhancement Request – Save KTM user settings in CaptureSV. It is now possible to redirect user settings for rich-client user modules so that they are saved in the APPDATA folder, rather than the default LOCALAPPDATA. This is done by editing the %ProgramData%\Kofax\CaptureSV\Config\ACConfig.xml file. Once this setting is in place, user settings related to docking or toolbar customizations are redirected to the APPDATA folder. Add to the configuration file using the following syntax. Create the node if it does not already exist:
1634072 – MCAP 18.104.22.168 – Object Reference Error When Validating UB04 Documents.
