Fujitsu ScanSnap Update For Mac OSX Snow Leopard Now Available

Just got notified from Fujitsu so I am posting now. I haven’t tried it yet so I am sure there will be updates later.

Fujitsu announces ScanSnap Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard Update for ScanSnap S1500M, S300M, S510M, and S500M.

Updating select ScanSnap models listed above is a two part process. The first update restores features associated with ScanSnap Manager and the second update restores features assciated with FineReader for ScanSnap.

Note: These updates are for compatibility with Snow Leopard only. If you are using an earlier Mac OS, do not install these updates.

The updates are available here. Good luck and please let us know how your installation goes.
Update #1 Nov 14/09: Some users are reporting that the patch won’t install because it is saying “…could not be installed on this computer because the target ScanSnap Manager is not installed”, even when it is. User Bob in the comments below reports:

Make sure your old ScanSnap Manager folder is at the root level in your Applications folder – otherwise the updater will not see it and give you that error message.

Thanks Bob!

Update #2 Nov 14/09: As others have mentioned, so far only the ScanSnap Manager portion has been fixed, not the FineReader OCR part. Looks like that will still be coming. From Fujitsu’s website:

Step 7: The download for FineReader for ScanSnap update to Snow Leopard will be hosted by ABBYY but is not yet available. If you have already subscribed to be notified by Fujitsu regarding the Snow Leopard updates, an email will be sent to you when it is posted.

Please click on the following link to be notified by email when the Snow Leopard update for FineReader is available for ScanSnap S1500M and S510M.

So, if you are still waiting for the FineReader update, you can sign up for notification from Fujitsu by clicking the link, or, of course, stay tuned here.

Update #3 Nov 19/09: The ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap Snow Leopard Update is now available.
