Scanner Central Admin Agent

What is Scanner Central Admin Agent?

Scanner Central Admin is a server-client software that makes it easy to monitor and manage multiple scanners over a network from one point. This saves time and labor costs when performing large-scale administrative tasks like mass updates of scanner drivers and settings. Scanner Central Admin makes it incredibly easy to manage multiple scanners over a network by allowing administrators to install drivers and essential add-on software, perform updates, set user settings and more--all from one console. Scanner Central Admin indicates the current status of every scanner (e.g., running/idle, consumable part replacement required, error detected) together on one screen for convenient and efficient management. From that screen administrators can also get scanner details like model number and system/firmware/driver version.


The most common release is 1.00.0043.13, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named FMAService.exe. The setup package generally installs about 29 files and is usually about 15.53 MB (16,281,643 bytes). The installed file FMAUpdaterS.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
