Photoshop CS3 murder/suicide from scanning
Posted on 2007-07-30
I try to scan with Photoshop CS3. On the first occasion I scanned a picture a few times, last time in 1200 dpi. All was well until next day, when PS could not load the twain driver, Not only that, - two more things happen:
1. PS freezes, can not even close it, have to eliminate it from Task Manager end process.
2. PS does not release some process (the scanner) , and therefor the scanner is becomes unavailable for other programs until I reboot the computer. (Restarting the scanner no good.) When this happen and I go into the Control panel/scanners and cameras the scanner is not there. (The Wizard would in turn say that the scanner is busy with an other program...)
First I reinstalled an updated scanner driver (Epson Perfection 1200U) and then yesterday I bit the bullet and reinstalled the whole CS3 Master Collection. (I already did a repair install on PS.) Now I tested it, the only difference that in the past I got two errors in the event viewer I think 1000 and 1001 but now I did not.
The Twain driver starts loading, the first window displays, then goes, the scanner does a warm up run, and then it should relay back info and the twain window should open. That's where the glitch is, this second window does not open, just PS trembles a bit, (the last breath) and is dead taking the scanner with her.
This would be indeed a Master feet to figure what goes wrong. (WIN XP Pro SP2 and everything.)
