Omnipage Pro 8 removes scanner driver.
Posted on 2000-04-10
Why does the scanner driver disappear in Windows 98 when I start Omnipage Pro 8. There is no error message.
Problem appear after change computer and OS to Win98se instead of Win95.
The scanner identifies by Win98 after reboot.
Windows 98se (swedish)
HP DeskScan 2.9 (latest driver from HP)
OmniPage Pro 8.
It worked ok in Windows 95 with shipped drivers. I have tried the shipped drivers but it only gives me a different error.
The Scanner works properly before I install Omnipage.
There is no problem scanning images. Installing Omnipage is no problem either. But the driver simply disappears in device manager after omnipage has beens started.So that documents cannot be scanned from Omnipage. It requires a reboot to get Windows to reinstall the driver.
