It seems that Epson don't have any specific Win 8 drivers. Have you tried using the Win7 ones as they often work.

It might be helpull regarding the scan software but I'm not hopeful.

Incidentally sometimes the RX, SX and TX drivers are virtually the same and it might be worth trying them from a similar model number.
