Old Epson Scanners and Twain software in XP

I have downloaded the updated drivers for Epson 1200 photo and 640U scanners but have been told by Epson that the Twain software for Smartpanel will not work under Windows XP. Does anyone else have any experience in getting the older Twain software to run under XP?

I always find,with older scanners and XP,that the original install software rarely works as it should due to a "Service" in XP called "Windows Image Aquisition" My scanner will work,but I have to disable this WIA or my scanner remains on until its lamp burns out.To use the scanner I re-enable WIA,and use the "Scanner & Camera Wizard"
