    I have been having problems with my Epson Perfection 1660 Photo Scanner.
    I tried reinstalling the software. As its being installs it detects
    the original software & says that it will remove it first. During the
    instillation the I am advised that a file 'EPPRINT\english\set.exe' is
    missing. It continues installing but once finished the program won't
    start because some file is missing. The name of missing file is just

    I have done a search of the Epson disk & there is a folder called
    EPPRINT on it but no instance of EPPRINT.setuo.exe.

    How do I fix this problem?

    Thanks in advance

    I completely deleted as Epson entries from the PC using uninstall,
    search & delete those still found & then removed 2 references to Epson
    using regedit . Then I installed the newly downloaded driver & finally
    installed Epson Smart suite. During the latter instillation I still got
    the message that 'EPPRINT\english\set.exe' is missing. The instillation
    continued. Once completed I clicked to open SmartPanel only to get
    message that 'The procedure entry point
    [email protected]@@[email protected]@@P[email protected]@[email protected] could not be
    located in the dynamic link library.

    Despite this I opened Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 & selected get pictures
    from scanner & the Epson scanner application opened & I was able to do a
    scan. Even though this worked it isn't as easy to scan as when using
    SmartPanel How do I fix the error?
