I've been using PaperPort 14 on Windows 10 since it was introduced. With virtually no problems. My issues with paper port started earlier this year, with loading the program. So, I've been using alternative apps to accomplish many of the tasks I used to run using PaperPort. Particularly, scanning documents to be stored.

PaperPort desktop will not install on Windows 10. Direct scan works but when I scan to desktop, it will not open. Unusable on Windows 10.

I'm a long time user of PaperPort but the latest version (14.0) will not run under Windows 10 and I have found the supposed update to 14.5 is impossible to install so I've lost the use of this program and can no longer recommend it to anyone unless you're still running XP.

I purchased an ADS-1500w Brother Scanner and the software on CD was included. I find it disturbing that Mac and Windows OS's are supported and no Linux OS options. I purchased the Scanner for Linux compatibility and your bundle is totally useless.

I think it has various versions that you will find useful.
