25. How to load EzeScan DESKTOP to Start a Specific job or UPLOAD Task

If you wish to open EzeScan DESKTOP and go directly to a job, you can use the following samples below to create a shortcut and EzeScan will load and go directly to that job.

You can copy the Windows desktop shortcut that is created by EzeScan, Select the Properties and modify the target Path.


  • Scanning Mode: Use C:\Program Files\Outback Imaging\EzeScan\EzeScan.exe -scan the_scan_job_type_name

  • Import Folder Mode: Use C:\Program Files\Outback Imaging\EzeScan\EzeScan.exe -import the_import_job_type_name

  • Job Button Mode: Use C:\Program Files\Outback Imaging\EzeScan\EzeScan.exe -button the_button_number

(Note: the button number starts at 0. E.g. Button 1 is 0)


  • Use C:\Program Files\Outback Imaging\EzeScan\EzeScan.exe -route the_route_type_name


  • Use C:\Program Files\Outback Imaging\EzeScan\EzeScan.exe -upload the_upload_type_name

If running as a scheduled task add the following switches -uploadindex "name of index file.txt" -closeotherinstances -closeafter .

This will run the specific KFI output file, close any EzeScan instances and will also close EzeScan after the batch upload has completed.

e.g. Use C:\Program Files\Outback Imaging\EzeScan\EzeScan.exe -upload "the_upload_type_name" -uploadindex "output.txt" -closeotherinstances -closeafter

Please refer to the EzeScan UPLOAD documentation for more information.

For EzeScan DESKTOP 32bit version the paths above would be C:\Program Files (x86)\Outback Imaging\EzeScan
