WinXP SP2:I've tried other systems too with no luck either. However, I've had this working (almost properly = every once in a big while it would hang and reboot was the only recourse) using an Intel D845GEBV2 motherboard with a 2.0GHz intel P4 w/ 1GB ram. I've found that the trick is the AGP card. The system stayed up long enough to play for hours. I had a Rosewill AGP Radeon ATI 9200SE video card. Apparently the 'rage' :) was AGP at the time this game hit the streets (1998) and this game is very AGP touchy.
I've also tried to run this on my P4 641 OC to 4.0GHz with 2GB ram with a Sapphire Radeon 9600 Atlantis AGP 8x video and ... no go. Similar issues with hand and config.
Right now I have it working on a just built Seattle 2 PII 440BX ATX motherboard (aka MICRON PC). It has a PIII @ 650MHz and 768MB ram. Boot to MS-DOS or Win98SE2. The video card on this one is an ATI Rage Mobility-L. A dinky little card, you can find one easily on EBAY for really cheap, but mine (bought on EBAY years ago for like $48) was out of an older MICRON system (not this Seattle 2 MB). Works fine. Really had to look on web hard to find a video driver for it ...This config also works great for these DOS games that I miss ... DOS Protected mode box within Win98 works perfect for Commander Keen and the original Duke Nukem!

If it is NOT compatible then there really is NO WAY to make it work. You may be able to run in compatibility mode, and try that. As Administrator, right click on the install .exe, then select the "Compatibility tab" and set it for XP SP2. Now also RUN the Insyall program as Administrator. This may work, if not then I am afraid you are unable to use it, unless you go back yo XP SP2.

3. on compatibility mode, check "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
4. choose between windows xp sp2 or 3 (sp3 usually works fine.), or windows vista sp1 or 2 then click apply.
5. run the driver installer, and see if it solves the problem.

You can try installing it in "Compatability Mode" for XP SP2 and Run As Administrator.
Windows Vista or Windows 7, has problems running some older versions of applications, just because so much has changed under the hood from Windows XP days.
To configure the compatibility mode for an application, just locate the installation directory and right click on the .exe, selecting Properties from the menu.
Select the Compatibility tab: Set it for "XP SP2"
You can actually hoose to run the program in Windows XP compatibility mode, or even all the way back to Windows 95 compatibility.
Probably the most useful setting to start off with would be to disable the visual themes and desktop composition, if you can’t get things working. If you are trying to run a video game, you will often need to choose “Run this program as an administrator”. You’ll have to play around with it, but most likely you can get your application working this way.

Is Software available for Vista?


According to HP, no. See link.

However, you might be able to install the Windows XP drivers and run the driver in 'Compatibility Mode' for XP SP2.

First, un-install any drivers you have installed for the scanner (if you have tried any).

Second, disconnect the scanner from your computer.

Download the driver and the software update from the provided link (above).

Once you have downloaded the driver (ps804en.exe) right click it, select the Properties/Compatibility Tab and check 'Use Compatibility Mode' and set it for Windows XP SP2, and also check 'Run as Administrator'
Then click ok.

Now run ps804en.exe and do not connect your scanner until the installation is finished (unless it specifically asks you to connect the scanner).

Now right click the updated software (ps803mu.exe),select the Properties/Compatibility Tab and check 'Use CompatibilityMode' and set it for Windows XP SP2, and also check 'Run asAdministrator'
Then click ok.

Now run ps803mu.exe


With any luck this might work.

My (Win XP SP2) command prompt does not work


First off, lets try a few things. This will help us narrow it down:

  • Try typing other known commands to see if they work (ipconfig for example)
  • Do a search on your computer for cmd.exe (you should only have 1, and it should be in the system32 folder.)
  • try typing cmd.exe instead of just cmd.
Give those a shot and report back. Depending on which one of these give you a problem, it could point to the correct fix.

The reason I say this is that your easiest solution may be to upgrade to SP3. The only times I've ever heard someone having this problem was also in SP2.

Get the SP2 back since you have worked with that well. If the win Xp still suggest for updgrade to Sp3 express you can ignore it anyway. Just click cancell to any install command from the XP SP3 xpress.
Hope it might help you.

Firewall settings


This usually happens due to missing or corrupt SharedAccess reg key, which represents the Windows Firewall Service.
Resolution

Download sharedaccess.reg (for Windows XP SP2 only) and save to Desktop. Then double-click the file to merge the contents to the registry. The Services entry will be created. Restart Windows (mandatory step, otherwise the following NETSH command will display an error message).

After restarting Windows, run the following from Command Prompt (cmd.exe)

NETSH FIREWALL RESET

Launch firewall applet from Control Panel, and then configure your Windows Firewall settings.

If nothing helps, as a last-resort solution (before reinstalling Windows XP Service Pack 2), give these two commands a try. Click Start, Run and type:

rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf

Restart Windows, and then run this command (from Command Prompt):

NETSH FIREWALL RESET

Attempt to start Firewall applet. Start the Windows Firewall service if prompted.
