There's only one way I've found to run this scanner on a computer with Vista, but its cheating since you really don't use Vista. Look at Knoppix 6.2 (www.knoppix.org). It has a scanner app (Xsane) that will run the Astra 3400 (using Plustek USB driver). The catch is you have to boot from the Knoppix CD (or DVD) which lets you run LINUX in your RAM, but won't mess with Vista on the hard drive. Save your scanned work to USB flash memory when done, then boot back to Vista and do whatever with those saved files. You have the option of various file types and even multipage PDFs.

    The Linux live CD approach can also be run through virtualization easily on machines capable of this. There are probably some smaller versions than Knoppix that will run faster in virtualization, but I ran the full DVD version in Win7 with 1 GB RAM for the VM. Here's a link on how to do this.

I am sorry according to their website I don't believe Vista will work with this scanner, it was meant for windows 98 / 2000 and can work on xp as well.

Have you tried running it in "compatibility" mode for xp? Right click on the file and select "properties" then "compatibility" and select each one to try and see if it will work for you.

Sorry I couldn't be the bearer of good news!
