Can't figure it out.
Try to select XP SP2 for compatibility and see what happens.

OK, I'm at a loss as well, did you check to see if Omnipage has an upgrade?

Yes. Not for free. They want you to purchase the new version and it's too expensive for me. I still have a feeling there has got to be a way to install it.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

My OCR needs are very minimal but I have a version of Abbyy Finereader that came with my Lexmark AIO printer that SEEMS to work pretty well with Win7 64 bit even with my Canon LIDE. They have a trial version and the Express version is $50 USD.
