X9 VIEWER lets you view data and check images as well as analyze, edit and perform data entry and correction of dollar amount and MICR line data in ICL files. X9 VIEWER supports ICL file variants of all of the major exchanges in the U.S. and Canada as well as those of the over 50 bank-proprietary RDC formats. X9Viewer lets you print IRDs and extract check images in TIFF file format from ICL files.
X9 VIEWER can help ensure error-free interoperation with your exchange partners. Financial institutions are ramping up production volume of Image Cash Letters (ICLs). A production X9.37 file can routinely contain 30,000 check images or more and can be well over a gigabyte in file size. One "bad" item can stop the reception, transmission, or processing of a multi-million dollar Image Cash Letter.

All My Papers has evolved various and flexible licensing models for the deployment of the X9 VIEWER application to meet customer demand and requirements.
X9 VIEWER and X9 VIEWER DE are Windows-based applications for the viewing, analysis and editing of check Image Cash Letter (ICL/UCD/187/X9.37) files (VIEWER) and rapid data-entry and correction of MICR data and dollar amounts (VIEWER DE).
Because check image cash letters contain sensitive financial data, organizations may want to restrict some users to viewing only and permit others users to edit the check ICL file data. Access to editing and data entry functions may be controlled on a workstation license basis.
The X9 VIEWER can be also be licensed to work with ICL files with fewer than 10,000 items or with any number of items per file.
ICL file size can approach the 2GB limit and contain over 40,000 check items and images. The X9 Viewer can efficiently access files located on other network resources but is most efficient if the ICL file is on the same hard disk as the application.
X9 Viewer can be purchased and installed on individual desktop workstations. This is the standard license.
Organizations that use Remote Terminal Services (E.g. Remote Desktop, Citrix) can install both the VIEWER and the license manager on a Remote Terminal Services server to conveniently provide Viewing or Viewing/Editing at any workstation from one to 62 users at a time limited only by the number of concurrent user licenses purchased.
Similar to Server Licensing described above but used when AMP applications are installed locally on workstations and licensing is provided from a server. Provides Viewing or Viewing/Editing at any workstation for up to 62 users at a time limited by the number of concurrent user licenses purchased.

Each instance of license server can support one version of viewer. To mix within a network, you will need one license server per Viewer version
Mixed Server and Distributed deployments
Applications can be installed on workstations
Applications can also be installed on License Server and other Servers
Administrative rights required to install
Workstations, Terminal Services and/or VM sessions must all have read/write permissions to access small semaphore files used in server and distributed licensing models
