Hi I have just installed a Canon 640pex on my win 98 machine and it causes the workspace to become locked. My thoughts is it is the enviroment manager for the printer which now runs through the scanner. Any hints or maybe a compatibility list for canon scanners

I have a 640P scanner and an Epson SC880 on the same cable. This setup has run well under 95, 98 and NT4. I'd be surprised if there were a generic incompatibility.

Check what is running in the backgrond (Ctrl-Alt-Del). Sometimes installing a printer will result in some managemental software starting up automatically. I haven't found out what these programs are good for; I usually make sure they do NOT start and I cannot say printing has suffered noticeably.

It apears that the enviroment manager which loads at startup is to blame.
