When the "Create Tesseract OCR Engine" Action is used in a Compiled Process,


then in order for the Tesseract OCR Engine to be initialized properly, the following folders/files should be copied to the same directory that the executable is located (no renaming allowed):


  • "C:\Program Files\WinAutomation\x64" or "C:\Program Files\WinAutomation\x86" folder according to the system's architecture.
  • "C:\Program Files\WinAutomation\tessdata"
  • "C:\Program Files\WinAutomation\Tesseract.dll"
  • "C:\Program Files\WinAutomation\WinAutomation.Actions.Runtime.OcrActions.dll"


NOTE: The above paths apply on machines that WinAutomation has been installed on the default location - Program Files of the C drive. Feel free to change them according to your installation.
