    Hi all

    Does somebody knows how to make my 1220 Umax scanner fonctional
    with win XP. I want to use the software that came with it not the one with
    XP.

    I did install the driver for it but still can't use the software.

    Thanks

    Pat

    Umax are a pain to use their Vistscan thro' XP! Also you'll needed is their
    XP patch as well.

    Unplug scanner from PC remove scanner from device manager. Shutdown, boot up
    with scanner UNCONNECTED. Then install Vistascan 3.55. Finally patch.

    Shutdown completely and THEN plug the scanner in. With luck & hope XP will
    recognise Vistascan. This can and might take many attempts but it eventually
    works. When it's up and running, set a restore point!
