Windows 7: Epson Perfection 1660 Photo

29 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 7 Professional

Hi madman77 - The instructions I was given were - Delete any Epson Scanner Drivers, Disconnect Scanner USB Cable, Install Vuescan, Reconnect Scanner USB Cable, wait for Windows to Install new drivers. log into Vuescan. It should then find your scanner.

Win 7 Ultimate

I will have to try that when I get home in a couple weeks. Have you tried using any online scanning utilities after getting it to work via Vuescan or does it only work from within Vuescan? Basically I am asking if it installs a TWAIN driver in Win7 or if it has it's own proprietary drivers from with the program only.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Operating System

Well from a retired old Phart's point of view, Hamrick VueScan costs more than my budget will allow.

Did anyone EVER get a sure fire way to use the scanner with tweaks?
The link to the version of an installer that someone had made is gone as it was on the servers closed by the govt.

This is a NEW system I have, reluctantly I had to go to it when my old Windows 2000 system had the Northbridge go South. Miss that old system. There are too many things abt 7 I don't understand yet. It took me a full six months to find out how to use a virtual machine & XP to run my Photoshop 4.x LOL

Any help would be appreciated.


EDIT: after two attempts to find the file that was kluged to make the drivers work with Windows 7 64 bit, and having to remove unwanted add ons from Firefox because of it, I bit the bullet and bought Hamrick VueScan. It seems to work pretty good! Now let's see if it also works with the virtual machine XP and Photoshop 4.

The wife is gonna kill me.
