  • Cannot save scanned doc after Windows update

    I just upgraded to Windows 10 1809 without any problems except I cannot save a pdf after scanning with Foxit and the Epson scanner driver. I can create a preview, but when I scan the document, it scans and then just spins without bringing up the OCR notification window or completing, and I have to abort Fxit to end it. I can scan and save successfully using the Epson software. I'd appreciate any suggestions as to how to track down the problem.

    Sorry for the trouble. What's error you get when you cannot save the scanned doc? If possible, would you please help to make a video to show how to reproduce the problem for our referencing?
    And run Foxit, go to Help>About Foxit PhantomPDF to check the version you use.
    Also, please try to perform a fresh reinstallation of Foxit PhantomPDF to see if it helps.
    1) Uninstall PhantomPDF from the control panel.
    2) Press "Window + r" input "regedit" press Enter, find folder "Foxit PhantomPDF" under the directory "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Foxit Software\Foxit PhantomPDF" and delete it.
    3) Go to the installation folder of Foxit PhantomPDF, somewhere like:C:\Program Files\Foxit Software, delete the folder"Foxit PhantomPDF"
    4) Run the installation file of Foxit PhantomPDF as Admin to install the program.

      Thanks for getting back with me. I uninstalled the app and cleared the registry and files as per your instructions, but the system is still responding the same way. I am running There is no error message; after scanning the document, the system just spins without ejecting the document. To stop it, I have to use the task manager to end the foxit task.

      Thanks for your help. Any suggestions?
