uninstall the program, reboot and then reinstall it following the instructions and on-scree commands and prompts. if the result is the same, maybe consider changing the version of your os, maybe your os somewhat conflicts with the program. try using oem os'
It depends on if you have the full software installed. The MP160 documentation indicates it came wth ScanSoft OmniPage SE. Open MP Navigator and choose this program, you can output the scan as a text file. If you did a custom install, you may or may not have installed the program. If you omitted the program, do a new custom install. OmniPage is an OCR program and will output to a number of formats (you will choose File, Save as) after scanning. Word can import RTF and most other choices as well as .doc files.
If you don't have the software disc, the software can be obtained from this URL: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=13368
Alternatively, there is a free OCR program (simpleOCR.com) that will do the same thing. However it doesn't handle text in columns (newspaper or magazines) very well.
Go to the Omnipage sight, they should post the scanners that have problems with their software. If you ahve the packaging, the guide should tell you or direct you a site that carries this information. Call Epson DX scanner or go on line to their site and query them about the problem, they should help. Go to the Contact Us. This should help you good luck
Hi, Unfortunately, Nuance most likely doesn't have a Vista patch to sort the problem with Omniscan. The best advice I can give you is to remove Windows Vista from your system and install Windows XP. Vista is riddled with bugs and incompatibilities with many software packages and has been replaced with Windows 7 which is due to be released soon. Rather use windows XP until Windows 7 becomes available and save yourself many further headaches. Let me know if you would like any further assistance. Best regards, Graemevm
My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it. Fast Forward: Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available. I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.
It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.
When unistalled the previous Omnipage SE 4.0 and try to install new update vresion, an error message keep poping up saying a previous version of Omnipage is still installed in the computer and can not install the new version. No more trace is found for old version in Add/Remove screen. The problems are in the registry area. Just run regedit (export the registry as backup) and look for Scansoft under the software directory. Deleted all the Scansoft omnipage traces then restart the computer will solve the problem.
