    Thanks for your quick response(WildOne). Yes, under imaging devices "Epson perfection 2400"is installed and shown working properly but the driver tab shown dated 8/26/2006 version 1.0.0.10. My scanner is Epson perfection 1640SU. How do I update to newer version? and what is the next step? TIA
    Yes uninstall and reinstall the driver as suggested by pkmicro.....be sure you are downloading the driver from link in my post above...

    I have uninstalled everything and using CCleaner to remove all files but after I installed the driver I kept getting the driver for "Epson Perfection 1640SU" instead of "Epson Perfection 2400". I have tried several times with the same result. What did I do wrong?

    Have you install using these instructions:

    Install software FIRST with scanner disconnected (USB). Connect scanner go to Device Manager (WIN + X) find scanner. Right click proceeded to update driver. Choose look in local files; let me choose from list...choose Image... Epson perfection 2400 photo...install....choose yes when asked about install wrong driver....reboot...check Windows 10 for updates just to make sure driver is not update or replaced by Windows

    Wow....I finally got it to work. I don't know if another driver or program "VueScan" that I had installed is causing these problem preventing me from installing it. I uninstalled "VueScan" and try following your instruction and it worked now. Thanks a million. Happy New Year!

    I managed to get my c. 1999 Epson Perfection 1200 scanner working by using the Perfection 2400 drivers. Epson state the Perfection 1200 is not supported in Windows 10 but it works fine if you use another driver. See my fix and see if the file I mention or other Windows 10 drivers will work with your scanner How to Install Old Epson Perfection 1200 Scanner in Windows 10
