: 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.

: Jef
