It doesn't.

I suppose it is too much to ask but do you by any chance have any win 7 solutions to using the CanoScan 5000F scanner?

Ok, having owned a copy of Vuescan since 2002 I just downloaded the latest version 9.0.93 (both 32 and 64-bit) and gave both (32 and 64-bit) a try and they worked....

1- Yes, you can import scanned files into Photoshop through Vuescan if you have at least version 8.6.66. However this is not a Twain (WIA) driver per se - that is you still can't use the scanner under Devices and Printers.....

However you can use it under Photoshop CS5.... open, click File, Import, choose Vuescan and Vuescan will open and allow you to scan and import to PS....

So yes, you can do this if you use Vuescan.

With regards to Vuescan though.....

As I've said, I've owned a copy since 2002 and when I purcahsed mine I bought the Professional version that comes with lifetime updates. Today that version costs 79.95 for Pro, 39.95 for Standard. Standard comes with a 1 (one) year upgrade subscription - VueScan Scanner Software for Windows 7, Mac OS X Lion, Linux, iPhone, iPad, iPod. I believe you can also try it out for 30 days (used to be) but I'm not sure now.

BTW even though I have Vuescan I don't use it. Never really liked the way it worked. I keep my scans simple, just scan and edit in PS.

Anyway that's the deal. Later.

Agree.
But many people do not.
Now it's said to scan Kodachromes far better than NikonScan ...don't know, I've already scanned and dusted off (edited in PS, healing tool) all of my KMs using my Coolscan 4000ED, and won't do that twice ... life's too short.

Completely agree Sygnus. Reality is, these older devices are just lucky to get to perform with Win 7. But they are great scanners, and little work arounds aren't the worst thing. I picked up on the PS piece, and wanted to be sure that the OP knew of the option. It isn't Twain, but it's at least it works.

It still works

Borrowed a Super Coolscan5000 ED from one of my customers who's using it on XP.
I have W-7 Pro.

Took me a couple of tries to finally get the scanner.inf and the NKScnUSD.dll in the right spot but once I did it works like a champ.

Many thanks,
Pete

Was it something you didn't understand at first?

Getting the NKScnUSD.dll and the scanners.inf files into one folder, then into the NkScan4 folder.

Something wasn't right in my mind but after deleting everything 3 times and then just follow your instructions, it fell into place.

I think I was dizzy from reading all the "other fixes".

I don't do any imaging work at all and my techie imaging software is Picasa.

Thanks again.

You can actually put those files anywhere you want as long as they're in the same folder and you point to it when looking for the driver (step 9). I just used the "Nikon Files" folder as an example.

Anyway thanks, and good luck.

Peace

Corrupted registry?

Andrew,

I just completed a new build, upgrading from XP to 7 Pro x64. I installed my Coolscan 9000 per your instructions and got it it working immediately. Did a couple of scans to prove the point and went on to other things. When I came back a couple of days later, I got a positive POST but NikonScan did not find the scanner, although it shows up in Device Manager. When I checked Properties, I got the following message:
Nikon SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED Properties
General
Driver
Details
Nikon SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED
Device type:
Manufacturer:
Location:

DIY Software
LUN0
Device status
^Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration
information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)
OK
Cancel


I uninstalled and reinstalled NikonScan to no avail. I did not do any registry editing during this period. Any thoughts about how to proceed?

Hi cdiem, welcome to sevenforums.

Sorry to hear about your issue. Don't know why that happened unless the scanner sudenly went bad. Is it possible to test in on another PC, possibly an XP PC?

The other thing you can do is make sure the cable is secure at both ends. Sometimes a loose cable can cause problems.

Let me know. I'll keep an eye out for you.

Later.
