[size=3]Hi all, my MUSTEK scanner worked with 98 but was not compatable with XP.
Mustek sent me instructions as to how I could make it compatable.
Firstly they sent me a new driver via ZIP file with instructions.
INSERT THE OLD INSTALLATION DISC WITH THE ATTACHED XP TOOL AND RUN THE APPLICATION.
IF THE XP FILE DOESNT OPEN THE RUN FILE, (WHICH IT DIDNT) THEN I SHOULD DO THE FOLLOWING.
GO TO THE REGISTRY- FIND HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS NT/CURRENT VERSION. (WHICH I DID)
CHANGE THE PRODUCT NAME FROM "MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP" TO "MICROSOFT WINDOWS 2000"
THEN INSTALL THE CD WITHOUT THE XP TOOL.
RESTART THE PC AND CONNECT THE SCANNER WITH THE PC.
THE SCANNER MUST BE RECOGNIZED.
THEN UNDO THE CHANGE MADE IN THE REGISTRY.
Ive found the file BUT dont have a clue how to AMEND it from MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP TO
MICROSOFT WINDOWS 2000
AND how to put it back to where it was after the installation?
Can you please give me instructions as how to do this? I need it in real basic step by step instructions,
as I dont want to cock it up. Thanks guys. CYCLOPS (TED)
