Just a little background,

I have another application (which we custom wrote) which reads in TIFF files that Capture has scanned in.. this application then searchs the TIFF's for barcodes.. Afterwhich is dumps them back into Capture so it can so a Tiff to PDF conversion.

Now... every now and again there is some problem with a TIFF file inwhich our program bombs... but the TIFF is still viewable with MS Image Viewer ... but if you give it to Capture it causes it to halt processing without any error.

Also i've found that if you dump a few thousand of images into the Watch bucket to be converted to PDF, it submits hundreds of them at a time and then stalls. I've let it run for hours upon hours hoping that it was just bogged down and slowed up... but it turns out it's crapped out... If i shut it down and restart it most will process immediately... However now and again i get left with a couple that just stay as Processing... The worse part is the ones that remain as Processing, the original TIFF is now gone (read in by Capture)... and i get no PDF out... and the only open is to cancel the job... so now i just lost those images...

ANy ideas ?
