    Thanks for the info - This also works with my Win 7, 64 bit system.
    Photos are a zip, but when I attempt to scan a negative, the lid light switches off and I wind up with a lovely scan of the underside of the lid.
    Perhaps I missed a key step?
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!
    Did you select in the driver (Advanced Mode) to use the TPU to scan a negative/transparency?

    Followed Steve C's instructions and the scanner works fine, but when I am finished scanning and exit the scanner, the scanner displays remain on the desktop and process continues to be listed in the Task Manager. I have to use Task Manager to stop the process before the scanner screens and process disappear. So it works, but does not exit properly.

    Try changing the properties of the scan software to 'Run as Administrator'. This cures a lot of programs that don't exit gracefully on newer versions of Windows that they weren't written for, especially when Compatibility Mode doesn't have any effect.

    Tried this, but get the same result. Not sure how to use Compatibility mode.

    Thanks, just wanted to say this worked perfectly for me


    This worked for me and I'm delighted to have my scanner back working again. I deleted everything Epson before starting, and my scanner showed up as an unknown device before I started, but otherwise I think all the steps went as shown here. Thanks again.

    I've been experimenting with Windows 10 using a VM (VirtualBox) before upgrading. One challenge has been to see if I could get my old 1999 Epson Perfection 1200 scanner working in Windows 10 since Epson do not provide any 64 bit drivers.


    I discovered you can use the Epson 64 bit drivers for the Perfection 2400 and they work fine with the Perfection 1200. The Epson Scan program is fully functional for normal reflective scans and film scanning (if you have the attachment). The built in Windows scan program also works. This fix also works in Windows 8.


    Here is how to do it:



    • Download and install the Perfection 2400U drivers from Epson USA, version 3.04A http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/s...rm=OSF_W_10-64
    • Connect and turn on your scanner
    • Run Device Manager
    • The Perfection 1200U will be shown under under Other Devices
    • Select Update Driver
    • Choose 'Browse my computer for driver software"
    • Choose 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'
    • UNCHECK the 'Show compatible hardware'
    • Click on 'Epson' in the Manufacturer box, and the scroll down through model until you find "Epson Perfection 2400', and choose that, and press Next
    • Ignore the 'Update Driver warning - choose 'Yes'; to continue to install.
    • The Perfection 2400 will now be shown in Device Manager. Note that the Perfection 1200 will still be shown under Devices & Printers
    • Run Epson Scan and test the scanner. You may need to log out and log in again for program to work

    Old Epson 1200 Scanner in Windows 10


    Steve, will this solution work for an Epson 1240u scanner?

    Thanks!

    Looking at Epson's site, the 1240U does have a Windows 7 driver listed so I would try that first. - https://epson.com/Support/Scanners/P...ndows+7+64-bit

    Still a problem with a SCSI interface

    Thanks for all the help in this thread but I still cannot get my 1200S to work. I presume the 1200U and 1240U models are USB connections but I have a SCSI i/f. I have managed to install a SCSI driver that shows (correctly?) in the device manager under other devices as "EPSON Perfection 1200 SCSI Processor device" but after installing the driver for the 2400 the scanner s/w fails to start - even after several reboots. Has anyone managed to get an EPSON SCSI scanner working under Windows 10?

    Partial success with SCSI i/f

    I persevered and tried several of the Epson driver downloads and managed some success with GT10000 driver. My SCSI controller was showing as the Perfection 1200 SCSI (as in the post above) but this was due to an earlier trial installation of Vuescan which works but on updating this driver to the GT10000 installed from the epson31729eu.exe download and rebooting the scanner does work with Epson scan. I am getting an error noise as the scanning light returns to its rest position after each scan but will experiment with the settings as well as try a few other downloads too for scanners with a SCSI i/f. All in all thanks to Steve for pointing me in the right direction.
