✔ Best Answer
Yes, unfortunately Epson decided not to include that model for Windows 8 support.
My 1240 model doesn't even have Windows 7 drivers but I managed to carry on using it by installing a third-party scanning application called "VueScan" which installs it's own generic driver for USB scanners, and the application is Windows 8 compatible.

However, there's a catch. Unlike an Epson driver, VueScan is not free but it's user-interface is far superior to anything you get with a scanner. You can download the trial version to see if it works with your scanner but their compatibility list shows the Epson 1260 as being compatible anyhow so you should have no problems with it.

Then you can buy a serial number to unlock the trial to a non-expiring version: Get it here:

It's currently the only way I know of which avoids having to replace your scanner.
