    I installed the drivers on my new Windows 7 64 bit system. Works like a charm. I also pulled Epson's scanner software off their website and the two work very nicely together:

    Epson GT-20000, Drivers & Downloads - Technical Support - Epson America, Inc.
    Select epson13539.exe

    Thanks a lot for your help. I felt terrible about not being able to use the scanner anymore. Now everything's great!

    Hi, I just joined this thread to say thanks!

    Epson told me tough luck, but your driver installed without a hitch!

    Now I upgraded to Windows 7 and got the message that my scanner was not compatible, but after re-installing your drive again no problem!

    Epson should be ashamed of themselves.

    Thanks for the driver. I have it installed on my Dell Studio XPS 16 with Vista Home Premium x64 and it works great on that machine. The only thing is that I tried to install this on my home PC with Win7 Ultimate x64 and it does not work. I have tried uninstalling via windows, re-installing, removing with Total Uninstall and re-installing or even installing over a previous installation of the driver.

    I have attached a screen capture of the error message when I try to initiate a scan. If you select yes it just opens a help file to which I have exhausted all troubleshooting possibilities. It doesn't matter if I use the included utility, ACDSee or an online Java utility with my bank.

    Please advise. Thanks again.

    I tried to install my software for my Epson 1660 onto a new PC which has Windows 7 64 bit on it & it would not install. I looked for a 64 bit driver for Vista & found this thread. I also downloaded the driver from the link & tried installing it.

    I just clicked the setup application file in the downloaded from the downloaded file. When I put my CD in the drive to install smart panel all I get is the message that the driver isn't compatible & I can't install the scanner. Where does on go from there?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello - I only registered to also say thanks. It has been frustrating not being able to use my Epson 1660 due to getting a new computer with Vista 64 and your driver combined with downloading the Epson scan program worked great, zero problems.

    Wish I could find a better scan program though, the new Epson one has a lot less options then the old one did. :/

    Again, thanks much.

    I have the unofficial driver now installed & my scanner is working OK. I also got Smart panel installed by selecting the correctly by opening the CD in Explorer & selection the correct file rather than just putting the CD into the drive & letting windows open the disk & try to install.

    To Vista64user

    Let me thank you for your software that allowes me to use my EPSON 1660 Perfection Scanner on my Windows 7 64bit OS.

    I spent about two weeks trying to find an update driver that would work on Windows 7 64 bit through EPSON techs and got quite a run around, until after quite a few E-nails and downloads they told me to use what never worked.

    The last one told me the truth there will be no 64bit software for the 1660 scanner on Windows 7 and I should go to there store to see which scanners work on my OS. Like I should buy another new scanner from them.

    So again thank You for the Software that works.

    That driver didn't work for me. What did work was installiong the x64 driver from Epron for their Epson Expression 1680 Professional scanner instead. I had to force the Device Manager driver install to use the .inf file for the 1680.

    Here's how:

    Download and run the Epron file.
    It will extract to here:
    C:\EPSON\epson12203_twain_driver_and_epson_scan_utility_304a

    Then cancel the install process.
    Open Device Manager.
    Right click the scanner (will have yellow "!")
    click update driver, click click :Brownse my comp", click "let me pick from list..." , click have disk, then browse to here:
    C:\EPSON\epson12203_twain_driver_and_epson_scan_utility_304a
    pick any inf, and it should go from there.
