File Name

Additional Notes

These files are from the file, 832k, from Artec USA and dated 10-17-2002. The files have not been altered other than extraction by WinZip. This group is the Win2000 folder for the PV8630.* files. If you need WinME or Win98...look for the next two uploads of these folders with them included. All these files work together with the appropriate PV8630.* files as noted. There are two files Scanu32.INI and .PRO that must be expanded with windows expand tool, or WinZip. You will also need your original AS6U disk for a prior install of those drivers, before using this upgrade for 2000 and XP.

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.
