make sure you uninstall all versions of paperport before running the driver programs. I spent a long
time getting the right files to run my paperport onetouch 5300 scanner running under xp. It finally works!
Make sure your parallel port is set to ECP mode in the bios
setting. Also plug in your scanner to your parallel port and leave it on the whole time.
first run 5300.exe
it will create c \paprport and it will reboot
second unzip 5300usbXP.ZIP to c \paprport reboot again
you can now run fbdirect.exe the scanner initialization
program without any problem.
I use scansoftpaperport 8.0 to run my scanner, paperport 5.3 the one that came with my scanner would not work at
all under xp. I am not certain if it works with other scanner programs. Good luck!
