ECMS - General Known Issues - Technical Documentation
This document explains known issues with ImageNow clients.
General Known Issues:
Issue with Perceptive Content client launching in an unusable, "minimized" state
Issue with Perceptive Experience when accessing documents without a file extension
In 2004 and 2005 some documents made it into the Imaging system without file extensions (e.g., .tif). Perceptive Experience does not render documents without file extensions - the portion of the display that would normally show the document page image will instead remain blank. The workaround for this issue is to open the document in the Perceptive Content desktop client. A support issue has been opened with the vendor. The issue has been placed on hold pending development efforts (by the vendor) to correct the problems associated with the missing file extensions.
- Documents without file extensions will now render in Perceptive Experience in the TEST environment, and in Production after the August 8th update.
- Documents without file extensions still do not have thumbnails that render in either Perceptive Experience or Perceptive Content (client).

Issue with Perceptive Content v7.1 installing more than one ImageNow Printer on a single workstation
Lexmark provides instructions for installing multiple image now printers:
A file needed to install a second image now printer on a single workstation "SetupImageNowPrinter.exe" is not installed with the ImageNow client ver 7.1 build 378.
For folks just needing a standalone way to convert documents to pdf, they may also try installing the ver 6.7 image now printer and using that.
