Downloading the DataScanner


Application



The DataScanner portion of the DataDirector™ system
must

be downloaded onto the PC attached to the
scanner prior to scanning any answer documents into DataDirector.


Getting Started




Ensure that the TWAIN driver

(usually part of the software bundle that comes with the scanner) is
downloaded on the computer you will be dedicating

for scanning.



Verify that the LAN cable and the power cord of the scanner are connected.



Note: the person setting up the scanner
must

ha
ve a DataDirector username and password>



Recommended System Requirements for the PC attached to the Scanner




Microsoft® Windows XP, Service Pack 2



Microsoft®

.NET Framework 1.1, Service Pack 1 (Not .NET 2.0)



Intel® Pentium® D Processor with Dual Core Tec
hnology or AMD Athlon™ 64 X2



1 to 2 GB system memory (RAM)



500 MB free disk space



The more available memory, the faster answer sheets scan and process. Removing all unnecessary
applications and background processes on the dedicated computer should improve

scanning speed.
