Epson Smart Panel and XP

  Newuser283 10:55 09 Dec 2003

I have an Epson scan 2500 combination printer/scanner which worked perfectly on Win 98,
since upgrading to XP it seems that XP has hijacked the scanner controls so that I can no longer scan directly into application.I can scan from the scanner controls within xp
Does anyone have any idea how i can get control back

there doesn't appear to be a patch for this version(V1.10E).I have left a meesage on their site in the hope that they can come up with a solution

According to Epson technical support there is no patch which will allow the use of Smart Panel on XP, but they are "working" on the problem as it is a known fault. I will just have to use the windows interface for now until they come up with a solution
