Fredmallow,

You probably are onto the problem yourself. Try downloading drivers for Vista. If that does not work then the device is just not going to get along with Vista.

I am tryingto install an Epson Perfection Scanner 1260 without a CD. I have installed the driver on my PC but can't seem to go any further


If you installed the driver then your half way there. Now with your scanner powered on plug in the cable from your scanner to your computer. A window should pop up saying a new device or driver is being installed. If it doesnt prompt you to do anything after it installs then reboot (restart) your computer. At that point you should be able to scan once the computer comes back up again.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES that I did help you. Thank you

    Not sure if they are around. I do know there is an alternative in VueScan from Hamrick though. Might be worth a consideration if you don't find the drivers.

    Unable to install scanner


    Cant find such a scanner, are you sure of the model "performance", If it is not Vista compatable, ie if Epson have not released a Vista driver, then it is not going to work with Vista.

    See Epson web and download driver if available, if not change scanner or operating system or purchase software

    Check your Epson product CD to see if it already contains Windows Vista drivers. If the CD indicates support for Windows Vista, follow the instructions that came with your Epson product to install your driver and other software.

    If your Epson CD does not indicate support for Windows Vista, DO NOT INSERT YOUR EPSON PRODUCT SOFTWARE CD IN YOUR WINDOWS VISTA COMPUTER because the setup program is not compatible with Windows Vista. Instructions for installing additional software from your CD may be available with your driver download.

    Note: If you already have ArcSoft PhotoImpression™ 5 installed on your Windows Vista computer, you may need to install a "patch" program. Go to the ArcSoft website to download and install the patch.

    Products that are not Vista compatable are not capatable with Vista, who would figure hey!!

    Umax Astra 2200 scanner needing to run in Vista


    Hi, The Umax Support/Download (http://www.umax.com/download/index.jsp) do not have any patch/updated drivers for your scanner compatible with Vista. If the only issue that you would downgrade your operating system back to XP is because of the canner, it may not be necessary. It is possible to dual both allowing you a choice of Vista or XP. This is better explained at (http://apcmag.com/5485/dualbooting_vista_and_xp). This way you will retain the use of the new features of Vista in your new computer and yet when necessary make use of your previous devices that will only run in XP. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn out or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
