HP Scanjet 5300c Drivers

Hi

I use an HP Scanjet 5300c, which works fine.  I have been using VBA to operate the scanner semi-automatically, using the 2.5 version of the drivers and scanjet utilities, but I have had to upgrade these to work correctly with Windows XP SP2.  The 'old' Scan utlitiy had a tick box that could be set during first use to remember many of the settings, thus avoiding the need to change these if the scanner were used in a particular way each time.  The 'new' Scan utility does not have such a tick box and requires the imaging settings to be reset each time.  I can't find a way of overriding this - does anyone know how I can do so?

Regards

You could try using a utility like DriverMax. http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/
It will search for drivers and maybe find one that will give your scanner the desired functionality. However, your question seems to indicate more of a scanjet utility software issue rather than the driver itself. Anyway, it's worth a try.

It's possible that the settings you are wanting to set may be somewhere in the registry?

Thanks for the input, but I can see the available drivers.  The question is whether they can be configured.  It may well be that the settings are in the registry, but I don't know where.

That's why I asked the question!
