[filmscanners] RE: large scanning project



Tony, the question, for which I do not know the answer, are the existing
ASPI layers 32 bit only, 64 bit only, or neutral with respect to the bit
architecture.  I suspect that like drivers the currently available ASPI
layers from Adaptec and Microsoft may be written to 32 bit architectural
specifications and therefore not usable by 64 bit devices, systems, or
software.  Moreover, Ed's software may be written to 32 bit
architectural specifications and not work in 64 bit systems or recognize
64 bit hardware if such hardware exists.  (As an aside, I do not think
that the hardware in the case of peripherals is 32 or 64 bit
intrinsically but that will depend on the hardware's firmware).
