The below details how to configure an EzeScan Job or Route to use MicroSoft Office 365.
EzeScan 4.3.197 (Version 4 platform) or 5.0.28 (Version 5 platform) or above is required.
Firstly an App Registration is to be performed in the Azure Portal. This is to allow EzeScan to be able to connect to the mailbox to download email items.
Note: A registration by default will allow access to all mailboxes. Upon completion of the registration follow this link to restrict access to the mailbox (or mailboxes) that EzeScan require.
Perform App Registration
The administrator would choose the account type (this needs to be noted for EzeScan configuration later). We would recommend using Single Tenant.
The redirect URI needs to be configured. We recommend http://localhost (this needs to be noted for EzeScan configuration later)
The client secret needs to be created this needs to be noted for EzeScan configuration later.
Please note: When creating the secret, we require the secret value, not the secret ID. This needs to be copied upon creation as it can’t be retrieved again. If in error, delete and create a new secret.
The API permissions to be configured.
Select Microsoft Graph
Select Application permissions and choose:
Once all this is completed the EzeScan configuration can be performed.
The following information needs to be noted to be passed on to whoever is responsible for configuring in EzeScan:
- Tenant ID (If Single-Tenant ID)
- Client ID
- Client Secret (It is a good idea to internally document when this secrect will expire so you can update EzeScan in the future with the next one generated).
- Redirect URI (should be http://localhost)
If possible. The Azure administrator can approve the registration. Otherwise it will be performed later in the EzeScan connection.
The next step is to configure EzeScan to connect to the mailbox.
This step will also require an Azure Administrator to grant consent to the new app registration (if not yet approved).
Note: If an Azure administrator is not configuring EzeScan, the person configuring EzeScan will provide a URL link for the Azure administrator to approve.
- Load EzeScan as an administrator
- Select Admin -> Jobs -> Import Tab or Admin -> Routing Import Tab
Functionality is added as Import Folder “Import Sources” as shown at right and is applicable to both an EzeScan Client and EzeScan Server configurations
Note: Previously you may have a IMAP Import Profile, and may be migrating to Office 365. Unitck the IMAP profile (for now) and click and plus icon to add a new connection
Click the plus icon to add a new connection and select Microsoft Office 365 outlook from the pull down list.
Change the OAuth Registration to Custom
Change the OAuth Registration Type to Single Tenant
Set the Authorisation Type to Client Credentials
- Complete the Tenant ID, Client ID, Secret and Redirect URI (from the registration process).
- Then click on the ... for the admin consent. A web page will display asking for approval.
Once the wizard above has been completed this screen may return an error
This page isn’t working
localhost didn’t send any data.
Close the tab and the connection has been completed.
The operator can then configure the rest of the Import Documents Settings below.
Note: If migrating from IMAP to Office 365, you can flick between the profiles to note the previous settings and then apply to the newly created Office 365 connection.
When complete you can leave the IMAP settings unticked or remove that profile completely.
For more information about this connection method please see the below Microsoft links which provide more information:

If you look at the scanned image and you have an unwanted solid band/slice of black pixels on the top, bottom, left or right sides of the mage then this FAQ is for you.
Here's our top tips to help you troubleshoot and fix your problem.
1. If the black edges are on the left and right sides of the image, your paper width is most likely set to be larger than the physical width of the paper. Either:
a. Make sure the scanner input tray guides are locked in the centered position and that images are not being skewed due to loose guide positioning.
b. Make sure the paper orientation (portrait/landscape) in the scanner settings is set to match the physical page orientation in the scanner in-tray.
c. Make sure the paper size (e.g. A4, Letter, Legal, A3) in the scanner settings matches the paper size of the physical pages being scanned.
d. If an exact match for the paper size does not exist, then use a custom paper size and set the paper height and width settings to exactly match the physical page size.
e. If the scanner supports 'Auto' paper size, try turning that on to see if it fixes your problem.
f. If the has a separate 'Auto crop' option try turning that on to see if it fixes your problem.
2. If you have black edge on the bottom of the image you need to check:
a. The paper height setting is set incorrectly. Use the correct paper size for the height of the pages being scanned.
b. The paper height setting is set incorrectly. Use a custom paper size and set the height setting to match the height of the pages being scanned.
3. If you have a black edge only on the leading edge of the scanned image (i.e top edge in most cases) then check:
a. The upper paper feed rollers for wear and tear. If the pick roller/first roller is too slow to start scanning the page, the lamp turns on and starts producing a slice of black pixels until the white paper actually moves over the lamp. This is caused by worn rollers in the scanner throat. Try replacing the main drive rollers which are easily replaced consumable parts. They are usually the top rollers when you open the scanner throat.
b. The lower rollers for wear or tear. Also on Kodak Alaris i2900,i3000, i4000 and i5000 series scanners if the brake roller is too hard or seized completely it can slow down the picking up of the paper, and cause the same issue as 3a above. Try replacing the brake roller on the lower section of the scanner throat.
c. Feed and brake rollers are consumable parts meant to be purchased as needed and replaced by the customer. These rollers only last somewhere between 100,000 to 250,000 pages scanned. Many have visible tread pattern that wear's out muck like the tread wears out on a bald car tire/tyre. They are the biggest cause of scanner mis-feed problem and paper jams.
4. Most issues are fixed by going through troubleshooting steps 1a-1f, 2a-2b and 3a-3c. If you still have a problem there are some issues to consider.
a. Sometimes the scanner vendors driver settings for paper sizing and auto paper sizing have quirky issues during scanning. Paper sizes end up wrong or things get cropped off that you don't expect to and nothing seems to fix them. The first thing to try is download the latest scanner driver (with TWAIN support) and install it on the PC. Then retest to see if the problem is fixed. In most instances these will help solve some of your issues.
b. If you get to here and your images are still wrong. Create a new scan job and try carefully setting it up one step at a time. After each change of setting is made, make sure the whether the problem is fixed, still occurring or has gotten worse.
c. In rare circumstances the transistors in the main scanner drive circuits are blown or are defective, so that the scanning is no longer fully synchronized with the image capture system. We have only seen this twice in 15 years and we are dealing with 1000's of scanners.
We hope you found these tips useful. Please check out FAQ 126 if you are having a problem with small thin vertical lines appearing on your scanned images.

1. This depends on which version of EzeScan Desktop software you are using:
EzeScan Desktop V5.0 and higher
Yes - The 64 bit version of EzeScan Desktop v 5.0 supports only 64 bit TWAIN drivers
No - The 32 bit version of EzeScan Desktop v 5.0 supports only 32 bit TWAIN drivers
EzeScan Desktop v4.3 (Now superseded)
No - EzeScan Desktop v4.3 is available as 32 bit only. It only supports using 32 bit TWAIN drivers.
2. The second consideration is how old your scanner is?
As a rough guide:
Scanner models introduced new to the market before 2013 are likely to only include 32 bit TWAIN drivers. They only work with 32 bit versions of Windows Apps. download options are restricted to 32 bit scanner drivers only.
Scanner models introduced new to the market between 2014 and 2018 will most likely include 32 bit TWAIN drivers as default but some may optionally provide 64 bit TWAIN drivers.
Scanner models introduced new to the market from 2019 to now will most likely include 32 bit TWAIN drivers and 64 bit TWAIN drivers
3. There is one other big gotcha here.
For some older models made, Scanner vendors are providing scanner drivers that seem to be advertised as supporting 32 bit and 64 bit. This often relates to the underlying Windows OS, not whether it is using a TWAIN 32 or TWAIN 64 bit driver to communicate between the scanning software and the scanner. The key thing to remember is that a 64 Bit version windows scanning application requires a TWAIN 64 Bit driver.
The Canon DR-G1100/1130 scanners don't work with a 64 bit version of a scanning application. These CANON scanner drivers are able to be installed on 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows OS, but the scanner driver code is expecting to be called only from a 32 bit windows app only. If you try and use a 64 bit version of a windows app to access the scanner it will never find the scanner. However the newer Canon scanner models like the DR-G2110/2140 do come with TWAIN 64 bit driver support, and will work properly with 64 bit windows scanning application like EzeScan 64 Bit version.
The Kodaki3200/i3400/i4200/i4600/5200/5600/5800 scanners don't work with a 64 bit version of a scanning application either. These Kodak scanner drivers are able to be installed on 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows OS, but the scanner driver code is expecting to be called only from a 32 bit windows app only. If you try and use a 64 bit of a windows app to access the scanner it will never find the scanner. However the newer Kodak scanner models like the i3x50, I4X50,,i5x50 do come with TWAIN 64 bit driver. support, and will work properly with a 64 bit windows scanning application like EzeScan 64 Bit version.
Fujitsu did release updated TWAIN 64 drivers for some of it's older scanners like the fi-6X70, fi-7X60 and fi-6800 ranges of scanners. So those scanners will work with a 64 bit scanning application like EzeScan 64 bit version. The newer range of high end production scanners from Fujitsu that use Paperstream IP TWAIN drivers now all include TWAIN 64 bit support and will work properly with a 64 bit windows scanning application like EzeScan 64 Bit version.
The TWAIN drivers for older scanner will never be retrofitted with TWAIN 64 bit drivers by a scanner manufacturer. It's unreasonable to expect them to do that on scanner models that have been made 'End of life'.
4. Still not sure if your scanner driver comes with a TWAIN 64 bit driver?
Luckily, we've worked out some quick and easy ways to verify if the scanner vendors 64 bit installer package is actually installing a TWAIN 64 bit driver onto your computer.
a. The simplest way is to check if a 64 bit TWAIN driver file was added by the Scanner manufactures software installer into the c:\windows\twain_64 directory. There has to a be driver file for that model or series of scanner located in this directory for it to work with any 64 bit version of scanning software (like the 64 bit version of EzeScan Desktop V5.0). If there is no driver file for the scanner in the c:\windows\twain_64 directory then the scanner will not appear in 64 bit version of EzeScan Desktop v5.0 when you browse TWAIN Sources for available scanners.
b. Google search on-line for a download link for the TWAIN org's twack64 bit test application. Find a download link that you trust, download and install the program and run it. Then use the Twack64 app's 'Select Scanner' option to browse a list of installed 64 bit TWAIN scanner drivers. If you can see your scanner model/series in the list of available TWAIN Sources, then you know that the Scanner Manufacturer's software installer has supplied and installed 64 bit TWAIN drivers. The scanner should now also be browse-able as a TWAIN Source in the 64 bit version of EzeScan Desktop v5.0.
c. If your scanner does not show up in Twack64 list of available 64 bit TWAIN scanner sources then the either you've installed the wrong TWAIN driver installer package from the Scanner vendor website, or the scanner was never released with real 64 bit TWAIN driver support. Scanner manufacturers of old scanners that are not providing 64 bit TWAIN drivers by now, will not provide a new driver update to support 64 bit TWAIN. So realistically you have will have 2 options:
1. Use your old scanner with a 32 bit scanning application that will use the 32 bit TWAIN drivers. You could then use your licensed copy of the 32 bit version of EzeScan Desktop v5.0 to work with the scanners 32 bit TWAIN driver. You can run the 32 bit version of EzeScan 5.0 desktop software on either the 32 Bit or 64 Bit version of Windows OS.
2. Upgrade your scanner to a model that includes TWAIN 64 bit drivers. You could then use your licensed copy of the 64 bit version of EzeScan Desktop v5.0 to work with the scanners 64 bit TWAIN driver. Obviously this requires the PC to be running the 64 bit version of Windows OS.

First lets start with some useful background info on rollers.
Scanner rollers that pull paper into document scanners are a consumable part (i.e. they wear out over time). They need to be replaced at the scanner owners expense.
Roller that are worn will often slip on the paper being scanned resulting in paper jams, significant pauses during paper feeding, slower scanning speed, and large black edges being displayed on the top edge of scanned images.
There are typically 3 consumable rollers that are designated as being user serviceable/changeable parts.
Scanners that pull paper in from the top of the ADF stack of paper will have one roller on the bottom of the scanner throat, and a pair of rollers (2) on the top section of the scanner throat.
Scanners that pull paper in from the bottom of the ADF stack of paper will have a pair of rollers (2) on the bottom of the scanner throat, and 1 roller on the top section of the scanner throat.
The pair of rollers (2) are usually known as the pick roller and the feed roller. The job of the pick roller is to grab the next page from the stack of pages in the ADF. The feed rollers job is to grab the page fed in by the pick roller and move it deeper into the throat of the scanner. The pick roller and feed roller are both driven by a motor via geared teeth.
The 1 single roller is normally known as the brake roller. The purpose of the break roller is to inhibit the scanner from picking up an extra sheet of paper during scanning. The brake roller is not driven by a motor. It's usually fixed in place, doesn't spin, or is difficult to rotate. A worn or faulty brake roller will often causes paper jams to occur, with more than 1 sheet of paper being pulled into the scanner
Now that you know what the rollers do, there are several easy ways to tell when the rollers should replaced.
1. Simply look closely at them. Just like a car tyre,scanner rollers often have a tread pattern cut into the roller. Some times the tread pattern going vertically round the roller and other times it just horizontal grooves across the width of the roller. As the roller scans the tread pattern or grooves slowly begin to wear out becoming harder to see.
2. At about 100,000 pages scanned many consumable rollers are no longer in good condition..Just like with car wheels, the rollers can have low to no tread pattern visible, wear unevenly forming bald spots on one edge and even flat spots on the roller.
3. Some scanners provide a software scanner management tool that allows you to see how many pages a set of rollers have scanned (e.g. Fujitsu SOP, Kodak Alaris SVT) or even alerts you that the rollers need changing (e.g. Fujitsu Scanner)
4. Some scanners provide access to the roller counters from the front panel of the scanner itself (e.g. Canon scanners)).
Most production scanners (high volume, high speed, higher cost) have other fixed rollers (that are not user serviceable parts) and they are typically good for scanning up to 1.5Million pages before a factory service is required.. A properly maintained high volume production scanner is capable of scanning millions and millions of pages.
Remember to keep your scanners clean. They should be cleaned everyday of use and the paper input tray, scanner throat and output tray should be carefully vacuumed to remove unwanted paper dust buildup.
We've seen many a good scanner discarded because the customers think they are faulty, when it's really just a case of replacing the rollers, giving them a good clean and returning them back into Service.
