Windows 7 - Driver for Agfa SnapScan e52

Asked By Bernd Leutenecker on 09-Jul-07 11:59 AM
Hi!

From time to time a scanner can be handy - but
as I am using XP x64 and own an Agfa SnapScan e52-
Scanner I lack a driver to use my own scanner.
I know that Agfa has stopped any support for their
scanners. But maybe somebody found out another way
(anotherdriver) to use that scanner with XP x64!??

Thank you!

Bernd:
These guys make drivers and software for your "outdated" Agfa scanners.

Here's the proof that your scanner is supported.

There's a trial version available for download so you can try before you buy.
Best of luck.

One last resource would be to install Windows XP 32-bit on VMWare server
(freeware) and install your 32-bit drivers there.
In case you don't have your 32-bit drivers at hand, go here:

Hi!

Thanks for the hyperlink! VueScan works with my
Scanner and XP x64.
Although as expensive as a cheap Win32-Scanner
I will (have to ...) buy it.

Bye
