Xp Mode Epson 1250 Scanner ProblemNov 26, 2009
Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Have installed XP mode, & V PC.
Have installed Epson Perfection 1250 Scanner in XP mode.
I am unable to access the scanner dfrom windows 7.
I have to restart XP mode, USB/Attach scanner. Then i can use the shortcut to the scanner from Win 7, but i then get error message;
Windows XP Mode - Windows Virtual PC
To open a virtual application, the virtual machine must be closed
Click Continue to open the virtual application. This will close the virtual machine and you will lose any unsaved data.
To avoid losing data, click Cancel and save any unsaved data. Then, log off from the virtual machine and try again.
[V] See details [Continue] [Cancel]
Once it has closed i can then use the Scanner. Which is fine for that session. Once i restart win 7, i have to go through the same again to be able to use the scanner.
Is this right.
I note that whenever i close XP mode, and then reopen i have to do a USB/Attach for the Scanner.
There are no 64bit win 7 drivers for the Scanner, hence XP mode.
