I have a flatbed scanner (an Epson perfection 1660 photo) that I cannot use at all. I have a manufacturer's disk labeled "Scanner Software", but when I tried to run that, it gave me two different errors, which I'll outline below:
Error Number: 0x80040702
Description: Failed to load dll: OS info
Component Transfer Error:
File Group: _EW_Profiles
Error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
So, I uninstalled everything Epson on my PC, & reinserted the disk. Still got these same two errors. I Googled my model number & found a driver (located here), installed that, &...nothing. I can't even find anything Epson-related on my PC at all now. The scanner shows up under my list of devices & printers, but if I click on it, it says I need a WIA driver to use this device. I don't know what else to do. Please help?
