Hi,

I have a old scanner Agfa Snapscan 1212. It worked fine on my old HP, but I could never get it to work on my Dell. I have a new laptop, can the scan program be upgraded to work in Windows 7?

I can send you in the general direction:

http://www.silverfast.com/scanner-software/

http://www.hamrick.com/

You can look around there. I don't know of any free software out there that will work. If it is a generic TWAIN scanner I think there are freeware options out there, I have no experience with them though. I have used Vuescan with an older Epson when I moved to Vista64 awhile back and it worked fine. Main thing is you have to verify that the sodtware supports your scanner.

As old as that scanner is, it may be time to upgrade. You can find scanners for the price of Vuescan.

Thank you for the information. You may be right, that it is time to upgrade.
