FSCrawler - OCR not working anymore in 2.9 without Tesseract location in PATH


Upgrading FSCrawler from 2.7 to 2.9 I noticed that with our configuration OCR wasn't working anymore. In our _settings.yaml file we set the path to Tesseract we like below:

    language: "eng+nld"
    path: "D:\\opt\\Tesseract-OCR"
    data_path: "D:\\opt\\Tesseract-OCR\\tessdata"
    enabled: true
    pdf_strategy: "auto"

The logging from FSCrawler 2.7 shows OCR working correct:

Using the same configuration the logging from 2.9 shows OCR not working anymore:

After adding the location to the PATH variable on the system the OCR works correctly again.


Could you try with 2.10-SNAPSHOT?
