TotalFlow BatchBuilder reverts to grace period

The TotalFlow BatchBuilder host name was changed after registration. Go to https://www.ricohsoftware-entitlements.com/ems/customerLogin.html and login into the account to retrieve the new license file. After you downloaded the new license file, use the Manage Software Keys application to add it.

TotalFlow BatchBuildercannot determine the number of pages in a file from an input hot folder

The hot folder name contains double-byte characters and the operating system language does not have DBCS support. Rename the folder using non-DBCS characters if the operating system is not installed in a language with DBCS support.

The TotalFlow BatchBuilder mapped network drives are not visible in My Computer

You are logged in with a user account different than the account used for initially mapping the network drive. Make sure that you are logged in using the same user account you used when you mapped the network drive. Some operating systems do not start the same services for different users. By default all services are running under the system credentials that are different than any other user account. A service that manages the mapping drives may create mappings that might or might not be visible to the other users, depending on the operating system.

The Volume Estimates section does not display the estimation
