    I am currently using Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (32 bit) as OS on my PC. I also have Umax Astra 4100 Scanner for which I have the orignal driver CD ver 1.0 which was working well with windows XP Home my previous OS. Now I need a driver for the new OS. Where can I find it:confused:? I have searched the www.umax.com website without any success. Will driver on the orignal driver ver 1.0 on the CD work with win 7?:confused:
    I will appreciate knowledgable suggestions to resolve this problem.
    thanks.:):adore:

    It's hard to say if it will work or not. The best way to know is to try it out. If you have issues installing, you can also try Compatibility Mode (righ click the .exe and find the Campatibility tab and select it to be compatable to XP)

    I wasn't able to get my old UMAX Astraslim scanner working in Windows 7 (although I could in the RC, but it just kept crashing in RTM).

    You could give the old drivers a shot, as it's not going to do any harm - but UMAX don't seem to be supporting old scanners anymore :(
