Disclaimer: This is not a windows mailing list and some people may become
angry for seeing replyings to these kind of posts. So, I'll give you some
advice here but if you are still facing problems, contact me by e-mail,

First, have you installed the full software suite?

Second, have you followed the installation step instructions?

And third, have you tried to adquire an image from the scanner by using
TWAIN interface? (this can be done from any software program capable of
handling TWAIN imports).
