I too have upgraded my PC to Win 98 and recently purchased a Relysis Avec II scanner.  I have the same problems as the other guys I looked up with the same setup.  The software is not compatible with Win 98 and it does not install the scanner.  In fact it fails to recognize the scanner to its lpt1 port and when I run the disk from drive C i cant see any installation files.  I dont know how to install and deinstal and do all that other stuff that was previously suggested and i havent contacted the relysis online yet but if there is anyone that maybe has the upgraded version of the installation program for Win 98 that i can download please let me know if it exists and If i can get it. Thanx

mamicho,
Yor scanner driver can be downloaded here:

Apparently, the scanner requires an enhanced parallel port (EPP) for its operation.
Be sure this mode is enabled for your printer port in the CMOS setup.
Let me know if you need more.
Regards,
Ralph

i finally figured it out ralph,  if you have Corel draw 8 you can install the printer from there also.....i contacted the company over the phone and they gave me the same exact answer as you so you rock!  if anyone else has this problem ask them to try it through Corel draw and it will work also.
