Microtek Scanmaker 4850 not compatible with XP

When I tried to load the software to my scanner on my new computer I received the message that it was not compatible with the version of XP that I have as an operating system. It said to change the file Udnt.sys to Udnt.bak, however when I tried to restart the computer shut itself off and I had to restart and use the F8 key to get to the last configuration that worked. Is there something I can do? I have a Dell Inspiron 531s with XP professional. The scanner is a Microtek Scanmaker 4850 with software UMAX vistascan.

HP Scanjet 4300c wont down load the driver for Vista OS


The following instructions were posted by Harlandas on the HP support forum:

 

Here are the directions:

 

1. If your scanner is connected to your computer (USB) uninstall it using the device manager, be sure to check the box that says "delete the driver." And, unplug the USB when it is uninstalled.  When I did this had never installed the software previously in my Win 7 operating system.

2. Download the sj657 installer packaged from HP. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&softwareitem=sj657en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Extract it to a folder.  If you double click on the downloaded file it will try to open the setup file automatically and you will get a message saying the software only works on Windows 98, etc.  Just cancel and go to the folder (Default location is C:sj657) and continue with the next step.


3. Select the "setup" app and right click on it to get properties, change the compatibility to XP (I did service pack 2). Then run the it and click "OK" on any warnings from Windows 7.

4. Go to the Hewlett-Packard folder now in your Program Files directory, there will be a "HP Precisionscan" folder. It will be the only one unless you have other HP products. Open the Precisionscan LTX folder and change all apps to XP compatibility.  I also checked the administrator check box on each app (there are several) just in case.

 

5. Restart your computer.

 

6. Plug in your scanner via USB and let it in install.  Windows 7 should give you a notice that your 4300C was installed successfully.

The scanner will now work using the LTX software installed on your computer. The buttons on the front do not appear to work, nor can you do anything with it by going to "scanners and cameras" in your control panel. BUT otherwise, it seems to work great and all the functionality is there in the LTX software.

I have an old windows xp laptop. I use xerox documate 510 as a scanner with it. I just bought a new laptop with windows 7 and tried installing the cd so I can use the scanner. I am getting error messages...


I would say that the software will not run on Windows 7. You'll have to go to the Xerox site to look for Win7 compatible software.
There are several good 3rd party scanning programs that will probably work.

I think you are talking about Microtek ScanMaker 3800, if so, you can download the driver's from this website (click here). I can't make anything specific since you didn't mentioned any specific information like the exact model and the operating system installed on your computer.

If you need further help, let me know with more details.

Good luck.

My computer died. Had to buy new & went to Windows 7. Several CDs that installed programs on Vista and XP now won't load. E.g., Lotus Smart Suite displays "error accessing the system registry", then...


I have Win7 and am running Lotus Smart Suite 95 with no problem except for Approach which pops a message that I ignore.

Did you got to the CD and tell the install/start to run as administrator?
