Reinstalling Epson software - OneTouch button doesn't work any more

    My system recently had a meltdown so I had to reload Windows XP and
    all my apps.

    I have an Epson 1200U scanner which has this convenient "One Touch"
    button for starting a scan. It's great to make scans and copies.

    When I re-installed the Epson software, the One Touch button no longer
    works. The scanner does work fine IF you load up an application that
    uses the scanner, but the button itself is "dead."

    Checking around in Windows, the Hardware | Device Manager shows that
    the scanner is installed properly. When I opened My System, the
    Epson appears under Scanners and Cameras. But when I right-clicked
    and checked Device Properties, the Events Tab shows the following:

    Event: Start Button (no other events are shown in the drop-down
    list).

    No Applications are registered for this event.

    The Take No Action button is selected.

    The Start This Program and Prompt For Which Program To Run buttons are
    grayed out.

    So, how can I fix this setting? I'm willing to get into the Registry
    if necessary.

    I'm using the latest drivers available from the Epson Web site:

    Scan II 32 Utility 2.35E (ScanII2.35.exe)
    Driver 5.53A (Epson 10245.exe)

    By the way, these drivers are both pretty old. If there are newer
    drivers available for other scanners that will also work with the
    1200U, I'm willing to try them out.

    In the same vein, I'm also interested to know if there are 64- bit
    drivers for either Windows XP or Vista that will work with this
    scanner.

    Thanks,

    According to the manual you click that box to deselect it and then the
    other buttons will no longer be grayed out. I don't have this scanner
    but is seems logical.

    Keep in mind "The one touch function only works with programs that are
    OneTouch compliant, like Presto Pagemanager and Windows 98 Imaging.
    These applications support linking scanner events with the Start button
    on Windows 98 and enable the scanner monitor utility. For details on how
    to set up one-touch scanning, see "Using the Start Button" in your EPSON
    TWAIN User's Guide."
