Extract the content of the ZIP archive somewhere on your hard drive, then launch the installer called “Homer-install.exe”, click “Install” and simply wait until the setup is finished. The process may take a while to complete, after which you will hear a sound alert and you will notice two new shortcuts appearing on your Desktop, called respectively “Homer” and “Scan Tailor”. Note that on Windows Vista and Windows 7 the setup requires administrative privileges, so you will need to enter your user’s password upon launching the installer.

Hi, I installed "Homer-install.exe on Windows XP. When I go to do a test, show the error below:

/c/opt/bin/homer: line 421: pdfbeads: command not found

and the system don't convert to PDF with OCR...

it looks like Windows does not see the /opt/bin path in its environment variables. Have you tried to uninstall the package and re-install again? Try not to interrupt the installation process, simply wait until it says it's complete - it may take a while to build the ruby gems from source.
If this does not help, I will try to look into in a few weeks when I'm done with my master's dissertation.
Thanks for trying out our little script and for reporting the issue.

Hi Rodrigo, try this steps
1 - Go to Windows CMD command line;
2 - enter the command: cd \opt\Ruby187\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\cache;
3 - run:
3.1 - gem install pdfbeads --local
3.2 - gem install rmagick --local -- "--with-opt-include=C:\opt\ImageMagick\include" "--with-opt-lib=C:\opt\ImageMagick\lib"
3.3 - gem install hpricot --local
4 - Try run Homer, if ok then go to step 6, else go to step 5;
5 - copy the directories hpricot-0.8.4, pdfbeads-1.0.3 and rmagick-2.13.1 from C:\opt\Ruby187\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\gems to C:\opt\Ruby187\lib\ruby\1.8;
6 - Good look!
