Files for redistribution are installed by the LEADTOOLS setup. For more information on the installation directory structure or redistributing your application, refer to Installation Directory. Unless otherwise noted, file names are the same for both Win32 and x64 versions.
The OCR files that need to be included with your application depend on the OCR and draw engines being used, as well as the platforms on which they will be deployed.
There are three OCR Engines:
There are two draw engines:
The LEAD OCR engine can use either draw engine. The
DefaultEngine for Windows is an internal rendering engine which uses Windows GDI/GDI+. It produces the fastest results for Windows. Use the
DefaultEngine when creating Windows-only applications.
For other platform environments (platforms such as Linux, Android, macOS, iOS, and Universal Windows Platform (UWP), specify the
DrawEngineType.Multiplatform. It, too, is an internal rendering engine, but uses code independent of the operating system. When specified, this engine will always produce the same exact rendering results on other platforms that it produces on Windows platforms.
Note: The LEAD OCR engine is the only engine that can be used when targeting platforms other than Windows.
Note: Both the LEADTOOLS OmniPage and Arabic engine OCR Modules require .NET Framework 4.0. Also, they require the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Package and Windows 10 Universal C Runtime.
Because of the above requirements, the OmniPage and Arabic OCR engines are not supported on all platforms. The following operating systems are supported in both Win32 and x64 versions:
