: First, i cant find these drivers at all and nobody else can. I baught this scanner off ebay and there are no drivers for it an di cant get the damn thing to work without it. I think i got jipped. the files that i need are hpsjrreg.exe scsimap.sys hpsjvxd.vxd scisscan.sys hpsjusd.dll hspjvxd.exe Please please if any one you guys have the drivers plz e-mail them to me. (i doubt anybody does but its worth a shot)

I have been working on this problem all morning.
I finally got my HP5100c to work !!

I had the red x on the scanner button in the toolbar. Reloading the software didnt help.

When I would re install the software, I would get error messages stating that I needed hpscnmgr.dll etc. The installer said to insert windows 98se into the CD Drive and install the drivers from that. (I tried doing that and several different methods for hours, but it wouldn't work.)


After you put the win 98 CD in the computer and the message comes up that it can't find a specific file - Get out a Piece of Paper and write down the filename and extension. Then press the button that says skip this file. Another message should appear that says you need a different file as well. Write that down.

These are the files that it said I was missing on my computer.













Even though the set up process could not find these files on the win 98 CD - THEY ARE ON IT!

(I clicked on the start button > Find > Files or Folders, and entered the filenames and searched the windows 98 CD, but that wouldnt locate them for me.)

SOLUTION: Put the windows 98se CD into the CD Drive.

In My Computer, Right click on the Icon for your CD Drive, and select Explore.

Select the win98 folder. The files are lacated in the folders labeled DRIVERS11 thru DRIVERS20.

hpscnmgr.dll Located in folder # 11

hpscntst.dll # 11

hpsj32.dll # 12

hpsjusd.dll # 12

reg32.dll # 12

hpsjinst.dll # 12

hpsjsrc.ds # 16

hpsjrreg.exe # 17

scsimap.sys # 20

scsiscan.sys #20

hpsjvxd.vxd # 20

hpsjvxd.exe # 17

As you find each one of these, Right Click on it and select Extract.

The 'Browse For Folder' Window will appear, then Double Click on (C:) then double click on WINDOWS then double click on SYSTEM.

Do that for each file that you need. That places them in the C:\Windows\System Folder for that stupid HP5100c Scanner to Find.

NOW DO THIS. (I already had my scanner software installed before I moved each file to the system folder.) I checked the Device Manager to see if there were problems. There was. Under the Other Devices section there was a YELLOW EXLAMATION MARK on the HP5100c Scanner, meaning that there was still a problem.

SO DO THIS: Right Click on MY COMPUTER, select the PROPERTIES tab, then DEVICE MANAGER. Click on the + sign next to Other Devices. If the scanner has a Yellow exlamation mark then Right Click on the scanner and select REMOVE. If there is something called C5190A Remove this also. (C5190A is your HP5100c Scanner also).

Look in the Device Manager under IMAGING DEVICE. Click on the + Next to that and remove any scanner items that have a yellow exclamation mark. I would probably remove any scanner item, even if it didn't have the yellow mark.

Restart Your Computer.

Hopefully it works for you too !!!

PS. Check in the device manager again and select SCSI Controllers. Make sure that the HP EPST Parallel SCSI Adapter doesn't have a yellow mark.

If it does remove it, Restart your computer. Go to the control panel, select Add New Hardware.
Select NEXT, and NEXT again.
Select NO to windows searching, then select NEXT again.
Select SCSI Controllers, then select NEXT.
Select Shuttle Tech from the manufacturers list, select HP EPST Parallel SCSI Adapter from the models list, select NEXT.
Select Finish.
Restart your computer.
It may ask you to insert your win98 CD. Choose OK.

Good luck, and Shame on you HP For your Lack of Help on your website.
