    Epson Perfection 4990 Photo - Vista driver needed

    I spent several hundred dollars for this scanner not too long ago. It is the
    only hardware I have that I cannot get to work in Vista (Ultimate). Does
    anyone know where I might find a driver for this scanner?

    If it didn't come with Vista, you need to go to Epson's web site and
    see if they have it. It really is up to Epson to create a driver for it,
    if they are going to. Some hardware makers might say no to Vista
    for certain models / types.

    Hi,

    Try this:

    I've got a 3590 scanner and it worked for me.

    I've just seen a suggestion to check the Epson UK website for VISTA
    drivers.

    Here's their entry page for VISTA:

    http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ViewFAQ.aspx?lng=en-
    GB&ID=KB070001EN&data=22EF90957417DDBB2C76F17A441127E53333E27B1C3A5A6F9
    8373BC06379405F

    but that just indicates << Download available in January >> for a
    listing of scanners including the 4990.

    Here's a link to a VISTA version of their Epson Scan 3 software:

    http://esupport.epson-europe.com/Fil...d.aspx?lng=en-
    GB&ID=31731&data=22EF90957417DDBB2C76F17A441127E53333E27B1C3A5A6F98373B
    C06379405F

    EPSON Scan (3.0u)


    EPSON Scan directly controls all of the features of your EPSON scanner.
    With this software you can scan images in color, grayscale, or black
    and white and obtain professional quality results. This program is the
    standard cross-platform interface between your scanner and most
    applications. You can access it from any application that supports the
    TWAIN standard.

    You will note that like other suggested solutions it uses TWAIN.

    Good luck.
