Question about Mustek Be@rPaw 1200CS Flatbed Scanner
I tried to install the cd that came with the Mustek 1200 cs be@rPaw scanner on my new laptop which has home Vista op system and it want install. It works for XP system but not with Vista. I looked for a "fix" or download but could not find any. Suggestions to get it to work with Vista. Thanks.
Very simple: download from Mustek site ONLY VPDriver.exe. Then open it and store files in a directory. Open Hardware directory on System properties, locates the unistalled item related to USB scanner, select reinstall drivers and point to the directory previous. Vista locate drivers, intall them and our scanner runs correctly with all programs (ex. OpenOffice Draw, etc).
Try it ...

Go to Mustek.com and get the basic "generic scanning module" drivers at the bottom that don't have the PANEL program you originally had for this scanner.. Then using Photoshop (7 is what I have) try file/import/WIA Bearpaw Scanner - this works in Vista (I have the same scanner and Vista) - The buttons will no longer work but the twain driver works just fine..

I put the installation disk into my Dell Inspiron Laptop (with Vista). I pluged the USB into the laptop and when the dialog box appears I get it to search the installation disk for the drivers for the 1200cs.
I use the PhotoShop 5 and Paintnet with no problems at all! See #3 above for instructions on how to use this scanner with programs like PhotoShop.
Thanks Bertkel USA!
