You can download the manuals here.
As minimum system requirements we recommend:
For best results we recommend the following system requirements:
Omnitapps Professional uses Adobe Air, Adobe Air must be installed on the system to install Omnitapps Professional.
You can download Adobe Air for free at the Adobe website, download.
During the installation of Omnitapps, the system must be connected to the Internet.
The main differences are that the applications in Omnitapps Desktop only can be used in landscape mode.
Professional in landscape and table mode, Professional has also more applications.
Desktop is cheaper.
You can install different Omnitapps versions on the same computer, but you can only license one of the versions. However, you can deactivate a licensed version and then activate another version.
Omnitapps does get its touch input from the Windows operating system. This is called "Native touch".
If you have a multitouch screen connected to your computer Windows must recognize this display as a multitouch input device.
Some (multitouch)touchscreens are installed by plugging in a USB port (Plug&Play) and some need to have a software driver installed.
(Please refer to your touchscreen manual)
When Omnitapps does not respond to your touch inputs: The touchscreen is not recognized by Windows as a native (multi)touchscreen.
You probably can't draw lines in MS Paint. Please contact your touchscreen hardware supplier for a possible solution. You have a touchscreen that uses a special technique where the touchscreen software driver "talks" directly to your windows applications and simulates gestures as mouse events, or the software driver communicates with application by the TUIO protocol. This technique is not compatible with Omnitapps.
It's not windows 7 native touch compatible. Make sure you don't have software drivers installed like from Wacom or other drawing tablet manufacturers. These "trick" windows believing the system is multitouch enabled.
You can download Omnitapps Launcher here: Omnitapps Launcher
Rightclick on "My Computer" select "properties". You see a list of your system specifications.
You will see a item called "Pen & Touch". There you should read something like this "Touch input available with xx touchpoints"
This indicates Windows native multitouch.
Open the Windows application MS paint. You should be able to draw 2 simultaneous lines.
NOTE: You can test your multitouch capability with the TEST application in Omnitapps or visit this website:
If Windows has a multitouch screen device connected Omnitapps cannot be operated by a mouse device.
First disconnect you multitouch screen USB cable and restart Omnitapps. Note: Even when your multitouchscreen is disconnected it is possible that the installed software driver "tells" windows that it is still multitouch enabled.
Rightclick on "My Computer" select "properties".
You see a list of your system specifications. You will see an item called "Pen & Touch".
There you should read something like this "Touch input available with xx touchpoints". This indicates Windows native multitouch.
If this message is still displayed you have to shut down, or uninstall the multitouch software driver before you can operate
Omnitapps with a mouse device.
Omnitapps has a built-in onscreen keyboard, but Windows also has a onscreen keyboard.
Bring up the windows Onscreen keyboard, then select "Input Panel Settings",
De-select "for touch input, show the icon next to the textbox" and De-select "Use the input panel tab". Click OK.
This is a rare behavior and only happens on systems that had a previous Beta version of Omnitapps or happens when there was previous Omnitapps version that was uninstalled incorrectly. Uninstall Omnitapps again, and also delete all Omnivision and Omnitapps folders in //My documents/ and //c:/program files/ (32bit Windows os) //c:/program files(X86) (64 bit Windows os) Then reinstall the latest version of Omnitapps. Don't forget to backup your own project folders because with this method the whole projects folder is deleted.
When you have a licensened Omnitapps, goto the configurator and click on the button "Deactivate License".
Then you also have the option to save the serial number in a text file on your desktop.
Now you can re-use your license key to your new computer.
You can re-install Omnitapps (your license data is still saved on the computer) and then deactivate again in the configurator.
First make sure you are connected to internet.
Then make sure you entered the whole key, thus including the dashes "-". Notice that the license key is Caps sensitive.
You can also copy/paste your code into the textfield.
When it keeps rejecting, please contact us to check our activation server (it's possible that there was already another activation before on this machine).
You probably downloaded an Omnitapps installer without content, you need to manually add new content.
OmniSwipe needs at least 3 images to work. When OmniSwipe loads it needs at least 1 image to swipe to. (Forwards and Backwards) Thus 3 images are needed.
There are different reasons:
In the Omnitapps configurator you can select a predefined localized keyboard. In Omnitapps 2.0 you can choose the following onscreen keyboards:

When you create a new configuration with the configurator [CREATE] button a new folder is created.
Omnitapps cannot work if every setting would be left blank. That's why every new configuration is filled with Default content.
This is a good starting point for you to begin.
No, this is not possible. However, if you are the developer of the Flash object you can call use to discuss a custom integration in Omnitapps.
When Omnitapps first starts a application that has PDF files to be viewed, it converts the PDF file into another object to be used in Omnitapps.
You don't see this process happening, but you can however notice that it takes some time before a PDF thumbnail and file a visible in the application. When you have a lot of PDF files (e.g. OmniRequest) it takes some time to convert all PDF files. This process only takes place once.
This can have several causes. In basic Omnitapps cannot read the description file that belongs to that application. This can be caused by sudden power loss of the computer, misconfiguration, manual editing of the XML description file (went wrong) or when you made changes to the application folder structure.
Omnitapps replaces an application when it is missing. You can delete the application folder which has the white screen in your
//my documents/omnitapps/yourprojectname folder (Never delete anything in the program files folder)
When Omnitapps is restarted it detects the missing application and copies a new one from its own storage. It is filled with default content.
You also see white screens when did not use the EXPORT function in the configurator to transfer content from computer 1 to computer 2. On computer 1 all application description files (XML) have paths that point to local folders of computer 1. When you just copy your project folder to computer 2 all paths are problably wrong. By using the EXPORT function, Omnitapps makes a copy of the current project folder and modifies those unique paths that belong to computer 1.
It is not possible to open Powerpoint files directly through Omnitapps, but you can easily create a PDF or JPG file from your Powerpoint files. To do this, select the option "save as" in Powerpoint and select the desired file format.
Yes but this is not an Omnitapps setting. This must be adjusted in Microsoft Windows.
Yes. It is possible to have special custom build applications.

Omnitapps uses Acrobat Reader X for print jobs. When you never used this program before you have to open the Acrobat Reader and accept their license
agreement first. You can find Acrobat Reader in your programs list.
After accepting the Adobe license agreement you can close the Reader and start using Omnitapps again.
Omnitapps has a built-in onscreen keyboard, but Windows also has a onscreen keyboard. Bring up the Windows Onscreen keyboard, then select "Input Panel Settings" , Deselect "for touch input, show the icon next to the textbox" and De-select "Use the input panel tab". Click OK.
This occurs when Windows wants the focus. You can lock the taskbar or hide the taskbar to resolve this behavior.
This is a strange behavior when working on a computer with a touch-screen and the mouse emulation enabled.
To resolve this problem you have to disable mouse emulation in the configurator.
When you delete a file that is already sent to an e-mail address you get this behavior.
This behavior also occurs when you delete a configuration including files that are sent.
To de-activate your license you need to delete the system from your account.
