I have been running MS Office Small Business Edition 2003, which under the shared MS Office tools option includes MS Document Imaging. This is a great way to OCR a PDF and send it to Word. However it no longer seems to exist in MS Office Small Business Edition 2007. Can anybody tell me how to retrieve it or install a similar app?

I think this happens Nov 19, 2007

because “Microsoft Document Image Writer” feature is not installed by default when you run Office 2007 setup. In any case, in Office 2003 it did not install by default, you should choose the custom installation. I would recommend checking additional Office elements to be installed: I am sure you'll find MDI there.

It has always installed by default for me with Office 2003, but you are right that it is available as an option on the Office 2007 CD. I've now successfully installed it - thanks very much!

Why does it not recognize pdfs? Nov 20, 2007

Hi Eutychus, I followed your instructions and found the MS document imaging feature. However, it does not seem to be able to detect any of my pdf files...

What happens if you open a pdf and click "print...". Don't you get it as an option in the list of printers? (I think of MODI as a virtual printer, basically).

I tried doing this and it worked...

I spoke too soon Nov 30, 2007

I don't know what's happened, but although I can now get it to print to MODI it does not display in MODI but in Picture Manager, which does not have a "send to Word" option. I can create a *.mdi document but the system cannot find an application to open it (ie it seems to have installed only the driver and not the app itself).

Any other experience/ideas from anyone??
