In Reply to: scanner drivers for MUSTEK 1200 CU, with Windows XP posted by Juanita on December 13, 2001 at 15:23:05:

Hello Juanita and Troy...

i did some research and found out that you can use the Windows 2000 driver but you have to play with your registry first. this is a simple task and i will walk you through it. First, head over to and download the Win2k driver for your scanner.
-When it's finished, hit your Start button, the Run, and type REGEDIT and click OK.
-Now on the left side, click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
then Microsoft
then Windows NT
and on the right side, right click CurrentVersion
-click Modify and change it from "Microsoft Windows XP" to "Microsoft Windows 2000"
-Close REGEDIT and run the Windows 2000 driver you downloaded
-restart, on the next load hardware manager will pop up. let it do it's think, install, ok, finish.
-now run REDEDIT again and (if it's not already there) follow the above steps, only this time change it back to "Microsoft Windows XP"

and there you have it. good luck and enjoy.
