Windows xp problem

I've borrowed a Microtek ScanMaker 4 machine from a friend. I installed the hardware and software on my laptop which runs on Windows XP. HOwever, whenever I try to run the program, I get an error message: "This beta version is out of day" which I think should read "This beta version is out of date." I have also received this message: Can't run 16-bit Windows program: insufficient memory to run this application. Quite one or more windows applications and then try again."

Hi

It seems you installed an outdated (16bit Program) for the ScanMaker 4. 16Bit applications/programs and generally DOS based (Windows 3.x and 95) and will not run properly from Windows XP.

First, check http://support.microtek.com/product_dtl_2.phtml?prod_id=23 and download and install Drivers and Plugins for Windows XP.

You may need new 3rd Party Scanner/Image Applications that work in Windows XP. However, if you still want to use the 16Bit application then you will need to run the program in 16Bit Compatibility Mode. To do this, right-click the program executable or shortcut, choose propertise from the drop-down menu, go to the Compatibility Tab and put a tick in "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" From the drop down menu, choose Windows 95 or 98 and apply.

Finally, check the the User's Guide or ReadMe file(s) (if you have it) for more info. Especially, check the recommended OS for the Applications.

I might be wrong, but i think ScanMaker 4 has a SCSI interface. If this is correct, then your laptop or port replica must have a SCSI port. NB: SCSI is not the same as Printer LPT Port.

Regards
Mike

Microtek 3840 - Drivers for Windows 7


The scanner in question is not supported under Windows 7 as it is quite aged. I've seen reports of people getting drivers for the same scanner under windows XP and running them in compatibility mode, but these are hackish at best and may or may not work.

As it stands, there is no supported driver for the Microtek 3840 under Windows 7.

My scanmaker 3600 doesn't work on windows 7, It worked alright on xp. do you know what driver i can use to work on windows 7?


There's no driver for Windows 7, But you still can install it so it can work by install the driver for Windows XP in "Compability Mode". here's the steps :

1. Place the applications installation file on the Desktop.

2. Right Click the applications installation file and select Properties/Compatibility Tab. Select "Windows XP"

3. Click Apply/OK.

4. Right Click the file and select the Run As Administrator option to install.

I am having windows 7 installed in my PC.


The scanner is not supported by Microtek for Win7. But in Windows 7 Pro and Ultimate. Download and install the virtual XP mode (two programs are needed), then use the XP drivers and install the scanner to the "XP computer". You may need to store files on external media to transfer them between the "two" computers.

The XP drivers are here:

I hope this helps.

Microtek scanmaker 3800 windows 7 compatible


You can download: ScanWizard 5 version 6.63 Here: ftp://microtek:microtek@files165.cyberlynk.net/microtek/pcfiles/drv_sw5_v6_63_ad.exe
Extract to folder on desktop. 1. Plug in your Scanner 2. Go to Control Panel (Windows 7 - 64 and 32 bit) 3. Go to Device Manager 4. Go to Imaging devices (or Other devices) 5. Find what windows have installed Right Click 6. Update Driver Software.. 7. Click - Browse my computer for driver software 8. Click - Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer 9. Click - Have Disk 10. Browse to your desktop or position where you extracted 6.63, point to "....drv_sw5_v6_63_ad\Disk1\Vista\AMD64\..." Pick any of INF files I picked first 11. You will see 4800 Scanner and USB 2.0 Scanner, I picked first 4800 then USB 2.0 and both works.
I managed before to do it with simple install but well, it works .. ;)

I have a microtek scanner model #4900 which I gave to a good friend who has the new windows 7 operating system how do I get the driver files to enable it to work on her machine?


On the Microtek web site, I only see an XP driver. Your friend could try installing a generic TWAIN compliant scanner that is included in the Windows 7 OS or try to install the XP driver using the XP SP3 compatability mode (right click on the file, choose Properties and then the Compatability tab). Those drivers are at http://support.microtek.com/downloads/drv_specific.phtml?slct_os=8&prod=14&bymdlnme=1 .

A different method is available on Win7 Pro or Ultimate. Download and install the XP mode to create a virtual computer running Windows XP. Install the scanner to this "second" computer. Your friend will probably need to save the files to external media to transfer them between the two "computers".

I hope this helps.

Microtek Scanner installation issue


If running XP SP2, then try clicking Start > right click My Computer > properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > expand Imaging devices > right click on your Microtek ScanMaker > uninstall > Re boot > and let XP pick up the device and let the found hardware wizard configure it.

I have seen plenty of hardware that when following the devices manufacturer's instructions for install, such problems as you're having occur and XP SP2 usually will cure it, though you may still need the device manufacturer's CD (for the driver) in your optical drive.

This link: http://support.microtek.com/downloads/bymodelname.phtml?viewtype=2&srch_in=ScanMaker+5950&frmsearch.x=10&frmsearch.y=11&frmsearch=Search&frm_rqst=2&axn=1 will allow you to select between the 5950 and 5950 Pro then on the next page you will be able to download the latest XP driver for your Scanmaker among drivers for other Operating Systems also.

I hope this helps, and Good luck.
