filmscanners: 1640 SU Re-Install Question
I can't for the life of me get my 1640 SU
TWAIN driver re-installed on my machine
(Win 98 SE.) It was happily working a
while back, but was deinstalled when I
got the 8000. I had a need for it this
evening and tried to reinstall it, with
Strange thing is, the scanner itself is showing
up nicely in Device manager, and all seems well
with it -- no warnings, exclamation marks, or other
signs of foul play.
A download of the TWAIN driver from Epson
(v. 5.00A) yields a self-extracting .EXE
file. When exploded, this file yields
a single .INF file and two .CAB files. I
can unzip the .CAB files with WinZip, but
not sure if I should.
So now what?
I tried installing from the scanner's distribution
CD, and no luck there either. There's
a directory on the CD with the same 3 files
as in the download (a .INF and two .CAB files.)
Taking the simple "dummy" route gets me no closer.
It says (alternately)
"Installing TWAIN driver."
"TWAIN Driver deleted."
-- but in any case, I can't see the TWAIN driver
listed in PhotoShop (Select TWAIN source) for the
life of me.
Any ideas? Epson documentation (FAQ on web site)
suggests that Plug and Play should have a role here,
but it doesn't seem to. I've not seen any windows
"Wizards" kick in to ask for that .INF file.
