That's the correct file version and location. NS doesn't replace it by 
design insofar as I can tell.

NS will always use the one in its local directory and not the version in

This usually isn't necessary with Win2K. Two suggestions come to mind:

1) Go to a command prompt windows and run SFC. It's the system file 
protection utility. First just execute SFC without any parameters to see 
its options. Then do SFC /SCANNOW. That will ensure that you have the 
correct versions of all system files installed and that none of them are 
corrupted. Be sure to have your Win2K installation CD handy before you do this.

2) Install a Win2K Service Pack, either SP1 or SP2 to update all your 
system files. The bugcheck message with Vuescan isn't normal and probably 
not directly related to Vuescan. It may indicate a bad system file somewhere.

Unless you're using a special DV capture card with a firewire port 
(Pinnacle, for example) all firewire cards use the same built-in system 
driver in Win2K. If you want to make sure that the driver is installed 
properly use Add/Remove hardware in Control Panel to remove the firewire 
device. Then when you reboot it will be reinstalled automatically.

I agree with Ed, though, I think you have something wrong with Win2k. I

Yes, I agree also. I don't use Vuescan much but when I do it never crashes. 
It's a very robust program.
