Having just up-graded to a new computer which runs under M/S Vista, I am disappointed to learn that my Visioneer 9020 (bought 9 months ago, I find that there is no Driver for Vista provided by the manuafacturer. In fact, on their website, it states against the model entry "At End of Life". I take it that that means that no suitable driver will be provided to use it with Vista. Apart from the obvious i.e. replacement, has anyone, please got any ideas for a solution to overcome this obsolesence? When I try to install it, it is listed as a "Xerox Scan Pro".
Have a look at a program called Vuescan, it claims that it will enable a large number of scannens to work under Vista. It lists the scanners it claims will work. I found my scanner listed, which is a SCSI scanner obsolete after W2k listed; even though Vista did not provide a driver for my SCSI card. Can't say how good it is as I decided to stay with XP; but they do a trial period, so there is nothing to lose. click here
