I need scanexpress a3 usb windows 7 driver pls

I succeeded into installing and using the Mustek ScanExpress A3 USB!

I downloaded the driver for Windows Vista from the Mustek website, then did the following steps:
1. left mouse click on the web.exe downloaded file and choose Properties;
2. in Properties I checked "Execute this program always as Administrator" and "Execute in compatibility mode for Windows Vista";
3. without any scanner connected I executed web.exe, gave the authorization even if recognized certificate;
4. allowed the system to restart;
5. connected the scanner;
6. directly used it into any program.

Please let me know if these instructions was useful!

Regards and good luck.

Need driver for scanmagic 1200 ub plus help

Mustek has the driver for your scanner but it only has it for Windows Xp, Windows 2000, Windows 98 or ME, plus you can install it on a mac.

Here is the page that has the drivers for your scanner:

Download the driver to your desktop and then install it. Keep in mind if your trying to run your scanner on some other operating system thats not on that page, then it won't work

Mustek 1200 UB Flat bed scanner

This scanner will not work with NTFS systems - it was built for DOS system [95/98]
You could try My Computer/Windows help/Program Compatability
and try resetting the computer to run as Win 98 - it may work.
Otherwise replace the scanner.
