DemoShiled runtime error

  swapper 16:42 03 Jul 08

I have a Canon Canoscan D1250U2F installed and working fine until recently when I started to get "insufficient memory" just as it would start to "copy", the "scan" option still works fine.

After many attempts to sort this, I uninstalled the whole programme, but I now find that when I attempt to install via the original CD, even when I open the CD to install manually, when I click on the .exe file I get a Message "DemoShield runtime error.....etc"

All of my other CD's will open o.k.

This has been going on for wome weeks, and I now seem to have lost the plot, i.e I cannot remember what I have tried or not!!

Any suggestions please?

After uninstalling the old software it is always a good idea to clean out the old files and registry entries. I use CCleaner click here

You may find that your original software and drivers on your CD have been superceded. I have the same scanner which works fine on XP and Vista. All the latest drivers and software are available from click here.

chub_tor, thank you for your response, I did exactly as advised, cleaned the Registry with ccleaner and Eusing, but got the same result.

I'm at a loss at the moment?

Did you download the drivers from the Canon site or did you use your original driver disc?

This seems to be the relevant section from Halmer's link click here

Halmer, I did my best to follow that but the resuld was the ssame?
chub_tor, I have had a look into that, the file version on the Disc is version, Description Multi-CD Launch.

In the Link that you refered me to Version 6 is not even mentioned, have you got any suggestions (polite ones please)?

Thanks to you both.

What OS are you running 98, XP, Vista?

  chub_tor 22:09 05 Jul 08

click here is the latest driver for all OS's on the Canon website. This is the one that I am using successfully.

chub_tor, thanks for that, I'm sure that I have done that lot, but I'll uninstall and retry with them again.

This all started when I tried to "Copy" and got an error message "Insufficient Memory" Have you ever had that? as I said, the scanner side workds o.k. but not the Copy side.

Marg7, 128 Ram, I suppose I could do with more, I followed your link and did double the size of the vm to 1500mbytes, but I still have the same problem.

I can scan and then print a document, but I would have liked to resolve the problem that I have with the "Copy" option.
