The most promising solution would be as follows [from the Visioneer site - ref above]
" I downloaded the scanner package from the Visioneer web site and installed it on my Vista business in windows XP mode.
Then I opened up device manager right clicked the scanner icon and clicked update driver
And selected search for the best driver automatically and a driver was downloaded and installed.
I went to the scanner and fax program in Vista and now I have a working Visioneer 7100
Next I went to control panel and selected Programs and Features and removed the Visioneer software and not the visioneer drivers as you remove the software a menu will appear asking if you want to remove the drivers as well with a menu.
my scanner worked after I removed the Visioneer software it seemed to take a minute or two for Vista to finger out that the scanner was still there after I removed the software but now I have a perfect working scanner.
I remember installing this scanner in XP sometimes it turned into a driver nightmare and
Other times the install went smoothly."
I'm not sure what is meant by: "I downloaded the scanner package from the Visioneer web site and installed it on my *Vista business in windows XP mode*."
I have installed the software - but when I go to device manager I cannot find a scanner listed.
