Agfa haven't updated Windows 7 drivers for SnapScan E40, but you can still install it in Compatibility Mode using the Windows XP driver. First of all, download the Windows XP driver from HERE. After that, perform the steps given HERE.
Let me know if you need further help.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Hi keswickgatle i
Agfa stopped its scanners and digital camera business in September 2001. The XP-drivers are the last for your scanner from AGFA.
Here is a workaround if you don't want to buy a new unit : solution one: If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/ solution two : If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html. Back up your data first. solution three: I have Win 7 on my primary and installed Win XP on my secundary . Works like a charm .
Have a nice day , Best regards, fanaudi .
Although Agfa no longer supports their scanners with drivers and software updates, some Vista and Windows 7 users say they are still able to install the XP software and get it to run. In another thread, broccauley said: 'I got my Agfa Snapscan 1212U scanner to work fine with Windows 7. All I did was to install the XP Agfa Scanwise 18.104.22.168 software FIRST (available from Agfa website). Then I went to Devices and Printers, right-clicked on the 1212U and chose "Troubleshoot" - Windows then found and installed the driver automatically.' Good luck!
As far as I can tell, the driver has not been updated for either VIsta or Windows 7. If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, you have a workaround option. Install the XP mode and then install the scanner to that virtual PC.
The VueScan program will work, but you have to go into device manager (Right-click "My computer" choose "Manage" select "Device Manager")
In device manager, you will probably see the scanner detected with a yellow triangle. Right-click the scanner and choose "Upgrade Driver" then choose "browse my computer for updated driver" and browse the the "VueScan" folder on your C drive.
Once you do that Vista will update to the VueScan Driver and you'll be ready to go (once you pay the nice folks at VueScan so that your scans don't have watermarks on them)
