Hi Shugs81 , welcome to the forums, get the driver here browsing: then follow these instructions

How to get the Artec 1236USB/Ultima 2000 scanner working in Windows Vista. Note that this how-to skips the various UAC prompts that occur throughout the process.

1. Right click on the Setup executable (whatever the name is, also assumes the full 22MB file) and then select the Compatibility tab. Set compatibility settings to Windows XP (Service Pack 2), and set the program's Privilege Level to run as administrator.

2. Install the scanner drivers and reboot the computer.

3. Go into Control Panel, select System, then select the Device Manager. Select the scanner, which should appear as an unknown item on the list. Right click on the unknown and select Properties, then select the Driver tab. Select the Update Driver button and let it search for the Artec drivers. A warning will appear regarding the lack of a digital signature. Tell the OS to install the driver anyway.

4. Reboot computer.

5. Search for Scan32.exe or open an Explorer window and drill down to c:\windows\twain_32\artecusb\.

6. Right click on Scan32.exe and select the Compatibility tab. Set compatibility settings on scan32.exe to Windows XP SP2 and make sure the executable can run as an administrator.

7. If desired, repeat this process with ScnPanel.exe in c:\program files\artecusb\scanpanel\. My personal opinion is that ScnPanel.exe is redundant, the aforementioned scan32.exe file being far more flexible. It only serves to use up resources, so I wouldn't bother with making the file compatible and would just remove it from the Startup group.

8. Start scanning.

Artec is unlikely to ever produce updated scanner drivers, as they are apparently out of the scanner business altogether

Hi pebbly, nice tutorial.

Check your "scanner" link as it just goes the the seven forums main page.

BTW it's always nice to have these scanner how to tutorials, I've had to write one myself for the same issue - no driver support

Doesn't find drivers

I have followed these instructions backwards and forwards, upside and downside and when it searches for drivers it always says it can't find them. Needless to say I am getting very frustrated as I have tried this at least 6 times since yesterday. Any other help would be greatly appreciated before I go postal.
