Yes, download and save, then run.

So I have created a folder "Nikon Files" just as you have instructed, but I cannot continue with the sequence of instructions as specified in the Example.

Am I taking this too literally? Please help.
Yes, you'll need to install the software (Nikon Scan) first. This will then create the folder structure - C:\Program Files (x86)\Nikon\NkScan4

After you've installed the scan software and the folder structure is created, take the "Nikon Files" folder you created and place it inside the "NKScan4" folder. Thus your new folder structure should look like this...

C:\Program Files (x86)\Nikon\NkScan4\Nikon Files

Please note - If you're running a 32-bit version of Windows 7, the folder structure will be - C:\Program Files\Nikon\NkScan4 instead. Other than that everything else still applies.

Hope this helps. Let me know.

Sorry about the misspelled name, but you really are a star!

Aha, the lightbulb went on. This still leaves me with the, possibly redundant, question: What action am I meant to take at step 4:

Quote:

4- </B>
Now install the Nikon Scan software you downloaded...


Have I not already done that by running the file "ns403en_vista.exe"?
The remainder of instructions at step 4 are perfectly clear.

Again many thanks for your patience and help.

If you already done that (which is what step #4 is saying) then you should have a Nikon Scan icon on your desktop, a folder in your "All Programs" list called Nikon Scan 4 as well as the folder in this path - C:\Program Files (x86)\Nikon

Nikon Scan icon.

Do you not have this??? If you do, follow the rest of my previous post. If not, re-run the scan software again. Sorry, am I not understanding your question?


Hehe...I'm familiar with Cygnus. When I was a kid I was interested in astronomy.

Sorry to be so dense.

I was only concerned that, after saving and running the Nikon Scan 4.0.3 drivers file ("ns403en_vista.exe") at Step 1, that there was another separate action required to complete the installation of the Nikon Scan software, as stated in Step 4.

4- Now install the Nikon Scan software you downloaded...

As I understand it now, this part of step 4 is already accomplished and I only need to proceed to the remainder of the instructions under step 4. viz:

after
the installation, go to C:\Program Files
(x86)\Common Files\Nikon\Driver\Scan1394
and copy this file NKScnUSD.dll to the same folder

(
Example: Nikon Files) that the scanners.inf file is in.

Again thanks.

Sygnus21,

i followed your directions to setup my Coolscan 9000 (Firewire) and indeed the system lists it now as a firewire device with the appropriate name.

i also can start the Nikon scan software but as soon as the application opens it freezes. looking in my taskmanager it says "program not responding".

i thus have managed to install the driver as per your suggestion, but now the Nikon software fails. i have tried various Windows Vista compatibility modes, all to no avail.

do you have any suggestion what makes the Nikon scansoftware freeze?

Regards,

Romke
