Re: filmscanners: 1640 SU Re-Install Question
I had the same problem a while back and I believe I deleted the
folder "EPFB5" in the Windows\TWAIN_32 folder but I'm not sure.
About a year ago I had a similar problem with the Epson 1200
scanner and an Epson support tech instructed me to delete an inf
file in the TWAIN_32 folder. With the 1640 things look a little
different and I think I deleted the EPFB5 folder and reinstalled
the software. I've got a good memory, just short. There is also
one file in the TWAIN_32 folder - WIATWAIN.DS - that also may be
Epson related. The only thing I see that can be uninstalled from
Add/Remove is the Epson Smart Panel and I don't think that will do
it. I also rebooted with scanner on to install. I used the
installation CD and then installed the update. With the 8000
there also I'd think its data would be in a separate folder.
Hope this doesn't steer you wrong,
