: : : 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
: : here:
: : ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj263en.exe
: : Download the patch for Windows 2000 here:
: : ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj269en.exe
: : Download the patch for the copy utility if you own an USB printer here:
: : ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj536en.exe
: : Download the newest
: : EPST driver here:
: : ftp://ftp.scmmicro.com/connectivity/drivers/epstw2k.exe
: : Instructions:
: : 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
: : test"
: : 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.
