    I have an Agfa Snapscan 1212u, and it will not run in windows Vista. Will any other twain driver do?

    I've fixed mine so it works with vista fine. If you download the latest driver from the agfa site (the SnapScan software), or install your original from the disk that came with the scanner, it will work with Vista if you right click on the program, go to properties and change compatibility mode to windows 95. You then have to run the scanner software in admin mode. Mine now works fine and I've been scanning in all day... Hope this helps.

I from Chile and the solution I write in Español

tienen que descargar el driver de la pagina de agfa

luego renombrarlo cambiando la extensión exe a zip y descomprimirlo en alguna carpeta,
colocan instalar manualmente y dan la dirección de la carpeta donde descomprimieron el archivo,
win da una alerta que el driver no esta firmado, proceden y con esto queda el driver instalado sin incompatibilidad, pueden revisar el “administrador de dispositivos”.
Para scanear, sobre el icono del scanwise, colocan propiedades (boton derecho del mouse) y en compatibilidad colocan con win95

no olviden instalar el driver para que se instale el scanwise
suerte y saludos

Agfa will not make XP or Vista drivers in the future for these scanners as it stopped its desktop scanners and digital camera business in September 2001.

16v adaptor for agfa snapscan 1212p scanner


I have one of those, but I doubt that you're close enough for us to meet. (Toronto, On.)
What you're looking for is a 16V, 900ma centre positive adapter. Try your local Goodwill stores. They often have adapters.

Good luck,

Windows Vista

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)
