Re: Fastest computer build for Scan Tailor?

Ok many thanks. One other thing why do you say it needs Scan Tailor enhanced? Won't it work with the standard Scan Tailor?

Re: Fastest computer build for Scan Tailor?

I just discovered that I had something weird going on with my firewall which was interfering with the script. I have now disabled the firewall and edited the script to remove the extra character "%xdir The script now runs perfect and uses all 4 cores on a test system I am running. Thank you very muc...

Re: Fastest computer build for Scan Tailor?

Thanks for helping with this
In test 1 it works perfect from the command line and starts generating images.

In test 2 the the popup message is exactly the same as the string in test 1 (except the ʺʺˏˏhideˏxpid ending.

Re: Fastest computer build for Scan Tailor?

Yes I am completely certain. The Task Manager does not show any scantailor-cli.exe processes started. There are no Tif images outputted and the progress bar is on zero even after 20 minutes. The only way the progress bar starts to show is if I open up each part file and manually start the processing...

Re: Fastest computer build for Scan Tailor?

Thanks for posting this new script. I installed Scantailor enhanced and did some testing using method A and B. With both methods the script successfully divides the project into part files, however it does not process the part files automatically. It is always necessary to click on each partfile and...

Re: Fastest computer build for Scan Tailor?

So is it just a matter of modding this?

Code: Select all

if cores = 2
{
a := xpages // 2	
b := xpages 
}
if cores = 4
{					;example 103 pages							
a := xpages // 4	 ; 25 
b := a * 2         ; 50
c := a * 3         ; 75
d := xpages        ; 103

Re: Fastest computer build for Scan Tailor?

dtic wrote: That would be easier. If you have coded anything in autohotkey before you may be able to modify the parts of the code that covers 2 or 4 cores yourself to allow for 8 / 12 cores.
Any idea how to do that as it does not look obvious from the script?

Re: Fastest computer build for Scan Tailor?

I have tried the autohotkey multi core and it is a definite improvement on speed, although the problem is it only works on the last stage. Is there anyway of using multicore at the select content stage as well?

Also is there anyway to support more cores, such as if someone is using 8 core or 12 core?
