My Epson scanner Perfection 1200 isn't compatible with my operating system Windows 7

    The updates made no difference. Sadly Windows 7 still rebuts the advances of my scanner. They're not 'compatible'.

That is correct, sadly there is no way to make the Epson Perfection 1200 work in Windows 7. Do you have the original disks for the scanner? You can try installing in Windows Compatibility mode, but I do not believe that will work. But to try it, if you have the original software do:

Run the Program Compatibility Wizard

  1. Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button My Epson scanner Perfection 1200 isn't compatible - 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Use an older program with this version of Windows.
  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

Are you sure that your scanner is not supported by Win 7? Take a look at this link. Here are the updates for the copy utility for your scanner. I know that copy utility is not a driver, but I assume that since there are utility updates for Win 7, the win xp drivers has to be compatible with win 7. So, at the lower right change operating system (to win xp, 32 or 64 bit depends on your system) download and try the win xp drivers.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Thanks and regards

A huge THANK YOU to the person who did the work that Epson
should be doing.

Without the scanner turned on, I downloaded the file, unziped it
and extracted the files. I then ran the .exe
After that I turned on the scanner and let Win 7 install the device.
Simple as pie.

I can not install my Epson scanner perfection 1200 photo on my laptop vista 32bits OS?


It all depends on what driver you have, it would probably be best if you went to the Epson web site, followed links for support and downloads and downloaded the latest driver for you scanner/operating system.

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=14557&prodoid=8161&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows


When I say that, I've just had a look and it maybe the case that this scanner isn't supported for Vista and beyond.

My only other suggestion to use their contact us link and ask them.

Epson perfection 1200 photo scanner won't work now I have changed to Windows 7. I cannot find any software update to help.


Okay, after careful investigation I have found that your scanner is not windows 7 complaint there fore there is no driver solution for this scanner. If you read below the last operating system this worked on was NT

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=FAQs&oid=14557&prodoid=8161

Now if you have windows ultimate you can run a virtual machine on this and hopes it will work, Also a dual boot will be a solution as well. Otherwise its not compatable.

Thanks and pelase do be considerate when leaving a rting to this fact.
