How to Configure Anti-Virus Applications with PaperVision Capture and SQL Server


In some scenarios anti-virus software (AVS) may inhibit the proper functioning of PaperVision Capture and SQL Server. The purpose of this article is to provide general guidance on excluding directories from AVS scanning in order to avoid potential conflicts.


Most conflicts with AVS can be avoided by excluding certain directories from real-time scanning. In general, it is best to avoid scanning resources which may be used by PaperVision Capture or SQL Server.

Possible directories to exclude are:

  1. The PaperVision Capture master batch path & local batch paths.
  2. PaperVision Capture Export path(s)
  3. Any paths accessed by the PaperVision Capture automation processes such as monitored auto-create batch directories and data import directories
  4. The %AllUsersProfile%\Application Data\Digitech Systems directory
  5. The C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\ directory
  6. The C:\Program Files\Digitech Systems\ directory
  7. The location of your SQL Server MDF & LDF files.
