Corrupt Access databases (mdb files) can cause problems in a Kofax Capture system and are the reason behind some types of stuck batches. In the case of publish.mdb, empty.mdb, or local\pubtypes, corruption may cause publish or batch creation problems. In other cases they can simply fill the error log with Microsoft Jet Database Engine errors.

Because they are passworded and because Microsoft Access may not be available on a given system these can be inconvenient to check. This utility tries to open all mdb files on both the server and local workstation and lists any that throw errors. It also provides a command line accessible alternative to DBUtil for running a Repair and Compact on Capture mdb files.

To go with this utility, I wrote Kofax Knowledgebase Article 12661.
