Canoscan LiDE 600F twain driver?

I have an HP Laptop with Vista Home Premium Installed. To do quick scans of bills, invoices, statements, etc. I prefer to use Irfanview ver 4.0. When I try to use the aquire function only the WIA driver is shown, not the TWAIN driver. The WIA driver works fine, however the settings are extremely limited. Of all the image editing programs on my PC only MS Publisher 2007 displays the TWAIN driver in a dropdown listbox, so I know its installed and working.

I've downloaded the latest Vista drivers from Canon's web site and uninstalled, reinstalled to no avail. I've used this scanner on a desktop PC with Vista beta 2 and RC1 without problems.

    Very simply Microsoft have decided that TWAIN is no longer going to be supported in Windows.  WIA with all its comparative limitations is all you are going to get for the time being :(  

    Developers for scanning software have effectively been given white papers from M$ in migrating users from TWAIN to WIA.
