Agfa E25 Scanner driver for Vista

  Esc4p3 11:43 10 May 2007

I am absolutely convinced that I looked on here a little while ago, and did a search for any topics related to Agfa scanner drivers. Although there are a couple of threads, I am sure they are not the ones I remember .... anyway.

Does any one know whether my E25 will work with Vista? I have done some web searching, and found Vuescan who produce a generic driver and claim to support a myriad of scanners, but you have to pay $39.95 for the privilege (which is still cheaper than a new scanner).

I note Agfa do a driver for XP, would this work?

ps. new computer not yet ordered, I am trying to check in advance what will or will not work.

Obviously I won't know if it works until I get the PC. My only concern is the file downloaded is vuesca84.exe, so it might be the vuescan product I found that is chargeable.

Being a cheapskate I love free option.....

Is it plugged into your current XP machine? If so, run the Vista upgrade advisor.

Its currently plugged into my Windows ME machine. I did run the XP upgrade advisor a while ago, and I would have been OK for an XP driver.

I am not upgrading my current PC to Vista, but buying a new PC with Vista pre-installed. As I said above, the Vuescan software may be my only option, and still cheaper than a new scanner.
