    Try right clicking on the epson icon


    1. Click Properties.
    2. Click Compatibility tab.
    3. To run the program for a different version of Windows, check the Run this program in compatibility mode for box and select the version of Windows that this application was designed to run on (Windows 7).
    4. Click Apply.
    5. Click Ok.

      If you haven't updated any drivers, that may also need to be done.

    I did, but I thought it might be worth a 'try'.

    Hi all, Thanks again for your replies. I have no trouble scanning using the scanner's own app so don't need add-ons like VueScan. On further reflection when I was using Office 2007 to scan it was Publisher I used which at that version was in the old pre ribbon heading format i.e. still using the 2003 style and thus would allow direct scanning I don't think it was possible with Powerpoint 2007. The lack of Twain in the latest versions of Office seems to be the problem so there is probably no way round this unless I revert to Office 2007. I know of one computer, not mine, Which is running Windows 10 with Office 2007 quite successfully with no problems.

    It's not Office, but Windows so reverting back to an older version does nothing unless you're also going back to an older version like XP.

    I know about TWAIN because I had a Nikon Scanner that I could use to scan images directly into PS. Once Windows 7 came along that ability was lost.

    I doubt that due to the fact the machine is running "Windows 10".

    Edit: to add that the scanning device must also include TWAIN drivers for the OS it's running under.

    I am one of those successfully running Office 2007 in Windows 10.

    If there is something you need me to check for you then let me know & give me idiot-level instructions for what you need me to do [I have never used any part of Office 2007 to conduct scanning; I have always used specialist or bundled scanning utilities].

    I'll ask for the OP since this it the main issue ... can you scan an image direct from Word into it using any scanner?

    I have never done it.

    I would need to add the Office component Microsoft Office Document Imaging and that is an Office tool that runs separately to Word not as part of Word.

    So the answer to, "can you scan an image direct from Word into it using any scanner?", must be, No.

    Well that's what the OP is complaining about

    A Gray,

    I have a vague memory of there being a direct scanning facility in Word etc until Office 2003. Perhaps that's what you are thinking off. There is no such facility in Word 2007 as is evidenced by the relevant Word Help entry [notice, in particular, the opening sentence] -

    Scanning using Office 2016-microsoft-office-document-imaging-section.png
    {This Word 2007 Help extract is also available at Scan and edit a document - OfficeSupport}

    If you had a graphics application such as OmniPage then it might have added a direct scanning facility in your Office applications but it would have used its own software rather than anything native to Office.
