Hello everyone,

i got a problem regarding the initialization of the ABBYY FineReader Engine in Java. I created a java application which should extract text of pdf files. I found an example code which initializes the engine like that:

engine = Engine.GetEngineObject(AbbyyConfig.GetDllFolder(), AbbyyConfig.GetDeveloperSN());

If i run my application on windows everything works like a charm but if i run my application on unix (of course with other paths for the installation) the GetEngineObject call does nothing but suspend my application. Can anyone of you provide some help regarding this issue?

Thanks in advance, Loris

Could you please specify whether you use different FRE distribution kits and licenses for Linux and Windows?

I solved my problem. For everyone who has the same issues:

The problem is that the jar file for windows and for unix are different. So you can't develop for both OS in the same project.
