: I am attempting to upgrade to drivers for the 5100c on a friends PC to support iwn2k but when running the setup prog. I get 'need to have admin. privilidges to install this'. I have logged on as Administrator but still get this message - Any ideas ?

These are some instructions I dug up off a website...

1) You can get full scanning features by
installing the software for the 5100C scanner.
Be sure to have HP PrecisionScan 1.02. If you don't you can download it
Download the patch for Windows 2000 here:
Download the patch for the copy utility if you own an USB printer here:
Download the newest
EPST driver here:
1. Boot the computer with the scanner turned off or disconnected.
2. Install HP PrecisionScan 1.02 and DON'T reboot yet.
3. Run the Windows 2000 patch (sj269en.exe)
4. Reboot with the scanner connected and turned on.
5. Windows will complain about hpppt.exe not starting, so go to
Start-Programs-Startup and delete the shortcut to "HP Parallel port
6. Open the registry (start menu - run, type "redegit"), go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce and
delete the item with "hpppt" in it.
7. Open the device manager (control panel - system - hardware tab - device
manager button), open the "Ports (COM & LPT)" section,
double-click on the LPT port your scanner is connected to, click on the
"Port settings" tab and select "Use any interrupt assigned
to the port".
8. Reboot.
9. Extract epstw2k.exe in a folder
10. Open the device manager and open the "SCM PPort SCSI adapter",
which is found under "System devices" and update its driver
pointing to the folder with the new drivers in it.
11 (Optional) install the patch for the copy utility if you own an USB
printer. (sj536en.exe)
12. (Optional) If the hardware icon in the task bar annoys you, double
click on it and deselect the "show icon in task bar" option.
Happy scanning!
Thanks to Sebastian for the instructions
2) The fix listed on your site for the HP Scanjet 5100C for W2000 dated 5/00 does not work for me. My W2K Pro reports that the system cannot load the drivers (from epstw2k.exe) for the SCM PPort SCSI adapter.
