Epson Epson Stylus Color 600

Epson color Stylus 600+ Visioneer Scanner

Hello, I cannot get the Twain part of Visioneer
Paperport 6100B to install w/ my Epson Color Stylus 600. The software installs and then the system says there is no actual scanner installed. Tried to use ME to locate and install the hardware but the OS keeps trying to install an non existant digital camera.
Ran Belarc on my system and it indicates both the printer and the scanner installed to LPT 1.
Has anyone else had this problem? What to do???
Thanks, Barbara
The Epson driver uses a status monitor program that "captures" the printer port. You will find that if the printer port is captured by the printer nothing else will work on the port.
It is normaly possible to run the printer off the port without the status monitor, in which case your scanner should work.....as long as it doesn't capture the port too! In which case hardware profiles are the way to go.

Hi, How do I turn off the status monitor? Thanks, Barbara

You'll probably find that uninstalling it through add and remove programs is the best way.
This should re-instate control to the Windows Printing System, rather than the Status monitor but you might still have to edit the system files!!
