Used Paperport HP v. B on older computer running win98. Would like to transfer PP program and files to new XP computer.

PP program loads OK and can be opened from "All programs" does not pick up older data files which were copied into new XP computer. I do not want to use PP to control a new scanner, just want to be able to recover all those old images in order to print or fax them from the new computer.

Any suggestions? Am I in the right part of the forum? Thanks for any help.

You're going to need a viewer for .max files. Then you have to find a way to copy them. Read here for suggestions

I did a little digging and your version of PaperPort translates to version 3.6. While the current version deployed is version 11. Since this was a Win98 app moved to XP did you install it using the XP Compatability wizard?

It may be as simple as incompatability and you need a .max file viewer, as garmanma suggests . Or XP may assist you by seeing it needs to emulate Win98.

OK. Had transfer from win98 to XP computer out of sequence. What worked is:

[1]Copied Paperport program and data files from win98 computer to CD folder "Paperport"
[2]On XP computer copied Paperport folder from CD to C drive (Dragged from disk to C; in Explorer.)
[3]Reinstalled Paperport from the original program disk to XP computer.
[4]All old folders and docs now on Paperport Desktop.

Thanks.
