Visioneer VX & IX scanners and Win XP
Posted on 2002-07-10
I find it interesting that nobody has a answer to my problem. Oh well, I tried. Thank you all for your help.
This issue is very specific and despite what has been said below. I'm still looking for an answer.
I am looking for somebody who has had the following exact experience. I have gotten some replies but of a general nature.
I'm trying to get my Visioneer ix keyboard scanner or the Vx scanner to work in Windows XP with Paperport 7 or later upgrades. I've read some people have been able to get them to work in Win XP and 2000 and in this case it comes real close.
I've tried the Yahoo discussion board and ScanSofts PaperPort WebBoard to no avail. Lots of interesting stuff but not the answer I'm looking for.
It's interesting they will work with Paperport version 4.0 in Win XP just fine, but quit with version 7.0 and above upgrades. It's not so much a driver issue as the scanners drive with the later versions, it seems to be a software conflict issue with Win XP and the later versions of PaperPort. I get the following error message as stated by "James".

I followed your very clear instructions elsewhere to get my Compaq Scanner Keyboard, (which i love and have loved for some 6 years or so -it's a visioneer vx) going with XP and PP Ver 8. Thus far, i can get the scanning animation to open when i place a sheet in the scanner, after loading the loader, but it doesn't save to the desktop, giving me instead a tiny error button, with no
title (except "paperport") and a little ok button to close it, without saving the doc. Any ideas?
