Windows 7: Epson Scanner s/w won't remember settings

Epson Scanner s/w won't remember settings

I have an Epson 4990 scanner installed on my Win 7 machine (build 7100 w/latest updates installed). I d/l'd the latest drivers for Vista from Epson's site -- v3.04a. The s/w installed fine, and the scanner works.

In Epson Scan's config section, there is a box one can check to have the s/w remember the various settings/changes/enhancements one makes to the image after preview, but before scanning. This box is checked.

As near as I can tell, the Epson Scan software has a memory problem. It does not remember the settings so I have to scan the images one at a time. Annoying.

I suspect that this is a compatibility issue. But I do not know if it was a problem with Vista or if it might be unique to Win 7.

What I'm hoping to find is some sort of tweak or workaround that someone here might know that will help me get the scanner working the way it should.

Any chance of that?

I am running an Epson Perfection 4490 with version TWAIN driver v3.0.

Where is the configuration option you are referring to?

Edit: Double checked - the 12119 download is the v3.04 driver as listed in the Epson site)
