How do I get Viewing Packages working in PrizmDoc?
Viewing Package Full Setup Instructions
We recommend pre-converting documents through a feature called viewing packages and it can be turned on in PAS Configuration.
viewingPackages – default: disabled – Enable Pre-Conversion Services and APIs, which allow you to pre-convert documents and cache on-demand document views in PAS, to improve the speed at which documents can be viewed, as well as reduce the processing time in PrizmDoc Server for repeat document views.
Enable Viewing Packages Feature
Since viewing packages also use a database you will need to create a database for PAS, configure a database, and run the scripts that are included to create the tables necessary for viewing packages to work.
Install Microsoft SQL Express
Note 1: If you have Visual Studio installed, you might have to uninstall the recent versions of C++ that are installed before MSSQL Express will successfully install.
Remove Visual Studio C++ Redistributables
Note 2: When installing, use all default install settings except for setting a custom database instance id and set mixed mode authentication so a custom password can be set.
Turn On TCP/IP For Database Instance
Set Port 1433 for TCP/IP Connection
Restart SQL Express Instance
Right-click and select "Restart" or double-click and select "Restart".
Install Microsoft SQL Management Studio
