    Totally new and completely different computer problem

    OK, so I finally got my new computer, which works wonderfully thusfar, except of course with it being vista and not compatible with much yet. And my problem is that my scanner software doesn't work with Vista, and I checked mustek's site and they just got the same as what I got on disc, so now I don't know what to do, I cant scan with out the software. Anybody know a solution?

    It would be nice if you could supply the model of scanner, but this discussion may hold the key to your solution:

    This may also help:

    The installer appears to check the operating system *name* and flat out refuses to start the installer if it's something other than intended, regardless of the fact that the drivers apparently work as normal when installed.
    TWAIN drivers are pretty much standardised across windows versions iirc. Getting them out of that installer is the nasty part. You should be able to use the scanner through any twain acquisition interface, such as the one in photoshop.

    HOly God, it worked! Used the second one, super appreciate it. Oh, and I have the same scanner as is in thepic there, just the A3 USB.

    My pleasure. Just make sure you undo the registry name change if you haven't already done so.
