The curious Kabri | How to force VMware to generate a new MAC address for a virtual machine

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/06

[WayBack] The curious Kabri | How to force VMware to generate a new MAC address for a virtual machine

  1. Shut down the Guest OS.
  2. Open up the .vmx file.
  3. Delete the following lines (that begin with…):
    ethernet0.addressType
    uuid.location =
    uuid.bios =
    ethernet0.generatedAddress =
    ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset =
  4. Boot up the Guest OS again, and it should generate new details in the vmx file (I’d check afterwards to be doubly sure).

In my experience, start with the bold values.

If the address is the same, fiddle with ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset

Be careful with the other values, as it might force your OS to think so much hardware has changed, that license keys have become invalid.

Fujitsu PFU ScanSnap Home: “OnLine Update” to update ABBY FineReader or install OCR Packs does not work

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/06

According to [WayBack] Software for the ScanSnap:

ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap

This application can perform text recognition on the scanned images using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to convert the image data into Word, Excel, or PowerPoint files that can be edited.

Install ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap from ScanSnap Online Update after ScanSnap Home is installed.

Display the [WayBack] Main Window of ScanSnap Home and select [Help]  [Online update (check for updates)] in the menu to run ScanSnap Online Update.

The piece above is untrue if you updated, as instructed by [WayBack] ScanSnap iX1500 Before you buy 03 – Fujitsu Global

Adding a Fujitsu PFU ScanSnap ix1500 scanner to a Windows machine that already had a ix500 scanner workflow was cumbersome

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/06

I was hoping for a quick install of the ScanSnap ix1500 on a machine that had a fully working ix500 workflow, just biting the bullet after contemplating about [WayBack] Thoughts on ix500; should I get an ix1500? for a while.

That didn’t work as expected: the Windows machine would not recognise the ix1500 when connected over USB or WiFi:

Missing driver

One problem here is that with the Ix500 installed, only the ix500 driver is known to Windows (on my machine it was in C:\Windows\Inf\oem12.inf which is identical to C:\Windows\SSDriver\SSMini\SSiX500-x64.inf) and the ScanSnap Installer software did not copy all drivers to C:\Windows\SSDriver\SSMini:

Incompatible software

I later found out that the ix1500 is incompatible with the ScanSnap Manager: [WayBack] ScanSnap iX1500 Before you buy 03 – Fujitsu Global
