Re: filmscanners: Vuescan - illegal ops?

I had lots of trouble with Vuescan yesterday, but  attributed it to my recent hard disk failure then upgrade, change from Win98 to Win98SE, and rebuild of my software. This is with a Scanwit and 192MB RAM.
I had many crashes, not on opening Vuescan, but during operation. I tried versions 7.0.21, 25, 26, 27 and 7.1, with careful expunging of the previous one each time. With odd exceptions, I was unable to do a strip of 6 scans without a full-scale hang, usually on the focus step of the second to fifth frame. I had to run Scandisk many times, and finally a total lockup caused my machine to want a surface scan. When I eventually allowed it, it took 8.5 hours to complete (40GB), so I'm not happy.
Before my recent upgrade, I had lately found Vuescan very stable, (up to V7.0.21), even when PaintShopPro was running as well. A further confusing issue is my recent upgrade from PSP7 to PSP7.02. I suspect PSP may have become more of a memory hog, in pursuit of greater stability (for itself). However, several of my crashes occurred with everything but Vuescan shut down. It's possible I'd never tried 6 continuous scans with PSP 7.02 before.
Interestingly, in most, but not all, of yesterday's failures, the scanner did a single uninterrupted pass, instead of its usual curious behaviour where it stops every 15% or so, steps back 1mm or so, and then restarts. It has been like that since v7.0.15. I asked Ed about it and he told me not to worry, it's just that the computer can't keep up. It doesn't affect the results.
So, I'm therefore worried that Win98SE's more rigorous checking of things has slowed things down, altered memory management, etc, so that my old stable setup is lost forever.
Any ideas, anyone?

Subject: filmscanners: Vuescan - illegal ops?

I am having trouble with all versions of Vuescan since V7-0-27 and including V7-1
Opening, or rather, trying to open the program gives a series of "Illegal Operation" boxes in Vuescan.exe.
Luckily I keep all previous versions so I have V7-0-25 up and running still.
Deleting the *.ini file has not helped.
Anybody else suffering or have any ideas?  Ed?
