You don't say which type of computer and operating system you are using. However, the answer is similar, regardless of the computer you're using. You probably updated your operating system, and the Agfa software no longer works. Depending on your operating system, there are various solutions you can use. Agfa no longer supports their scanners with new drivers or updated software. That's too bad, because they made some really good scanners for years.
A common solution I'm seeing on Mac, Linux, and PC platforms is to download and install SANE files on your computer and use graphics software, a different scanner program, or a direct interface with the scanner to continue using it. I'm on a Mac, and I'm using the Scan functions in Graphic Converter 7. I understand VueScan, OmniPage, Image Capture, PhotoShop (under some circumstances), and even Word will work, if the SANE files are properly set up. What works for you will depend on your own system.

Launch Roboform. It will open in Internet Explorer. Open the settings option.Under the default proflie window select 'applications integration', then uncheck 'automatically attach to Windows applications'. Reboot your system. The program should now close after scans.

A quick to fix to most communication problem is to reboot your system. Disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your computer. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Try to scan again. When scanning using the scanner glass, the scanner light will move across the glass to scan your original document. The printer will then process the image and sends it to your preferred application on your computer.

How do i fix "Application


Normally, this error message indicates either your firewall or anti-virus program is blocking the application, or you have a deeply infected machine.
Scanning your computer with trusted spyware and antivirus software may find infections that are causing the problem.

If this doesn't help trying finding your firewall or antivirus' settings and look for an exclusions settings. Add the program you are having problems opening to the list and then reinstall the application.

Are you scanning from Toolbox? Make sure the correct scanner is selected in the Settings section.

What OS is this? Try scanning from various applications.
Does the scanner react at all at any time?

Make sure you have installed ScanGear and not just Toolbox.
