I don't know the situation on PC.  But on Mac OS 9 and earlier, there is an
issue.  The Nikon Scan software installs a group of files into the
Extensions folder.  These files conflict with VueScan.  To run VueScan you
need to turn off all extensions whose file names begin with "Nikon..." (by
moving them out of the Extensions folder) and then restarting the Mac.  To
run Nikon Scan, you need to move the extensions back, and restart.  A pain
in the ass if you use both programs.

The issue does not exist in OS X.  I have run VueScan and Nikon Scan in X,
without rebooting.  But I have not tried running them at the same time.
