Hello  Abdul-Baqi,


When it comes to the authentication issue, please make sure that the correct authentication credentials are specified in your code:

  • Application ID  - the name of your application
  • Application Password - the password to the application that should have been sent to your account email together with the Application ID right after its registration.


The credentials should be specified in the AbbyyOnlineSdk.py file:
