Program Launched with Scanner Button

I like to use Irfan View for scanning images, but if I press the scanner button on the front of my scanner, Kodak Imaging launches. Is there any way to change this to launch Irfan View instead?

I'm using Windows ME, and an Epson Perfection 1250 scanner.

I dont know if its the same but my scanjet, in properties, there are three options,

start in this program, and you can set the default there.

Prompt for which program to run Which is what i use and you get a list of what you can choose.

do nothing.

Maybe you have similar.

I renamed Kodakimg.exe as kodakimg.bak, and copied i_view32.exe to the Windows directory, and renamed it to kodakimg.exe. Pressing my scanner button now launches Irfan View, which is a help, though the twain interface is no longer launched.

Other suggestions are welcome.

I was just poking about in my C:\Windows folders and found an .inf file that appears to be launching the twain interface.Can you not locate the similar one for your scanner and modify its contents to launch twain at same time as IfanView?
