Mustek 1200 UB Vista Drivers

February 20, 2007 at 23:12:16
Specs: Vista Ultimate, 1gb
I have an old Mustek 1200 UB scanner that I use from tie to time, but I haven't been able to use it lately since I switched to Vista. Are there any ways of getting the drivers to work with Vista?

Have you tried the XP drivers?

It is tricky but I did it.

Download the newest XP drivers from this german site:

You will need the SN ofyour scanner (it is on the scanner).

Get the one file instalation.

You will not be able to install the drivers but you can trick them to work.

The procedure is simple:

Do not plug in the scanner, start up the

Empty your systemroot\windows\temp folder

Srart the instalation and when it asks "Select Language" stop there. Then copy the all contents (files and folders) of Windows\Temp to another folder (e.g. systemroot\1)

Then plug in the scanner and windows should be able to find the drivers there if not guide it to that location and let it install Mustek Twain drivers.

Enjoy your scanner. :-)

Another way is to use regedit.

Be careful, you can destroy your system if not careful.

1. Click the Start icon, then type regedit [enter]
2. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
3. Note the values for CurrentVersion and ProductName. You can right click the CurrentVersion folder icon and click Export to make a backup.
4. Change CurrentVersion to 5.1
5. Change ProductName to Microsoft Windows XP
6. Run the web.exe installation program - ensure you run as administrator!
7. After completion change currentversion and productname back to original. This can be done by double clicking the .reg file you exported in step 3.

Done that but still not working.

This is the message I get after it searches for the driver.

Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device.

Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.


Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.
