Hi

I was trying to make my Epson Perfection 1250 scanner work under Windows 10 64 bit. The closest I have come was when I installed a driver (VueScan), which, admittedly, is free to download, but produces pages with watermarks all over, at least as long as you have not purchased it.

Does anyone know if there is free software available that will make my scanner run under the 64-bit Windows 10? I do not use my scanner that much, so I am reluctant to spend a lot of money on software for an old scanner.

Hi Jeppe,

Welcome to the Forum.

Have you installed the latest Event Manager for your model?

Released on 14 April 2017
https://ftp.epson.com/drivers/epson18709.exe


If not, download, and once saved, right-click on the download and Run as administrator. Make sure to allow it to run through the Windows Firewall [ this option will be the last screen you see during installation; just remember to check the box! ]


Regards,

Hi Regedit32.

How would Event Manager improve my chances of having my scanner run under Windows 10 64 bit?

imho $29.95 does not seem like a lot of money for an old scanner. That Vuescan is a good product. I used it to revitalize an ancient Canon scanner for Windows 10 for a friend.

I agree, Tim Locke, 30 dollars may not seem a lot of money, especially if you already have the scanner that would fulfill your scanning needs for many years to come, if driver problems had not got in the way. However, $ 30 (Hamrock.com says $40) is the price of VueScan only if you are satisfied with the sheer basics, viz. flatbed scanning and 1 year of free upgrades. If you need to be capable of slide scanning, OCR, and so-called advanced features plus lifetime upgrades, the price is $ 90.
