My Windows XP installation went flawlessly - with one exception: My Mustek 1200 CUB Scanner wouldn't install. I could manually get the driver to install so that Device Manager would recognize it but the Twain Data Source wouldn't install.

It seems that Mustek checks your operating system and will only install if it detects that you're running Windows 98, ME or 2000.

Mustek's USA support says there will be drivers available some time in the next 30 days.

ˇˇˇHAPPY DAY!!!...

I found on Mustek's German website the following solution:
http://www.mustek.de/html/faq/faq_gen_pc.html#winxp

This links to a program at:
http://www.mustek-driver.de/driver/winxp/fixwinxp.exe

Basically you run fixwinxp.exe. This prompts for a language then gives you a prompt to locate the driver you wish to install. This can either be on your original driver CD or from a downloaded driver. The program then fakes out the installer, making it look like you're running Windows 2000. The driver installation program then runs normally.

I posted a message to Mustek's USA support folks telling them their German cousins have already posted a solution.

Hope this works for others with the same problem.
