I am looking for the NT driver software for my ScanMan color scanner by Logitech.  As near as I can tell.  None exists at this time.  If you know of one let me know.

Here are links for three files that are all needed for the software drivers. They mention windows 95, but don't state that there are additional drivers for NT.

I loaded those file as of 1/7/97.  It didn't make any difference.  The software under DOS was upgraded, but it still would not work under NT.  As a note, this new software may have bugs.  The 400 dpi does not work any more.

The Logitech scanman isnt supported under WindowsNT, almost no scanners are unfortunately... So I myself just built another machine for my scanner and CD-R needs...

What I do today is reboot my computer in DOS when I want to use my scanner.  What I want is NT driver software for my           ScanMan color scanner by Logitech.  That way I can just stay in NT.

Yes, and no such software has been published by Logitech since they do not support WindowsNT

No way If you are using scanman color 2000, logitech doesn't
and will never develop nt driver for that piece of cake.
