If you're using a 64-bit edition of Windows (at least Win7 or Win8), then you cannot use Epson's software for this scanner.
But you *might* be able to use the open-source TWAIN alternative, known as SANE. See www.sane-project.org for info.
I DO KNOW that you can use VueScan with this scanner in the 64-bit edition of Windows 7. That's what I use, and I plan to buy it myself when I can afford it, but in the meantime (for things like documentation for my food stamp application:-(, I'm using the demo edition in a way that avoids the ugly 'Buy VueScan!' watermark (or nag-mark).
VueScan costs $40 for basic and $80 for full program, but the $80 edition includes lifetime updates. Or if you're super-cheap like me, and only need occasional scans of documents, you can use the VueScan trial edition -- and avoid watermarks -- by using the advanced settings to access the PREVIEW resolution setting, which you can then increase to 400ppi or so. After that, click the Preview button, not the Scan button. Then use a screen capture program (like Mouser's donation-ware Screenshot Captor) to capture an image of the preview (choose the capture-selected-region option).
And, if you click the VueScan button to rotate your preview 45 degrees, before you do the screenshot, the preview image will be much clearer -- otherwise it is purposely blurred just a bit to, I think, defeat this approach. BUT please, please note that I am serious about buying VueScan, and I hope anyone who uses this trick does so temporarily until they can buy VueScan too. :-)
