does anyone know if its possible to get this scanner working with xp?

i can get win2000/nt drivers but they dont work, i know scanners are not that expencive but i would rarther not go and buy a new one as ill only use it once or twice a year.

any help would be appreciated.

Did you try this:

Says on Primax’s website, they don’t support XP.

The advice seems to be the standard - if you can’t find an XP driver, try a Win2000 driver.

http://www.primax.nl/documents/xpmedocs/19200english.htm - this link is from the front page of the primax site.
The procedure seems a little odd?

i tried the install again as per instructions here http://www.primax.nl/documents/xpmedocs/19200english.htm but when i do step 3 the pft7~tmp folder is empty and it should contain the OT1 drivers. like intructed.

NOTE: The “pft…” folder must contain a folder called “OT1Drivers”. and i can`t seem to find them anywere, anyone got anymore ideas?.

Hi,
I tried just about everything but could not get the primax 9600 to work under windows xp.

I then tried installing winxp service pack 2 and the scanner worked fine with the exception that taskbridge could not preview (but the actual scan worked as required).
