Question about Umax PowerLook III Prepress Flatbed Scanner
Scanner software ceased working with latest system, found scanner software that did work and all ok, months later at next upgrade of system stopped working, contacted software vendor who managed fix. Next time operating system was upgraded (latest mac) scanner software ceased to communicate with scanner - it doesn't see it. Software vendor reckons the problem lies with apple. I have a very good scanner that I dont want to replace. Any ideas please?
Pity. Windows does the same.
Old machines need old OS because the manufacturer doesn't keep up.

Your OS is not compatible. Period. Either go back to what worked for you or get a new scanner that will work in new environment.

After checking the UMAX site for XP drivers, choose whatever is the latest drivers they provide, and then try to install them as normal. If it installs normally but does not run correctly, right-click on the executable for the scanner program and choose PROPERTIES and then adjust the COMPATIBILITY MODE to Win2000 or WIn98 and try running it again.
If the drivers for the scanner will not install, I had good luck tricking the operating system into installing the drivers by changing the OS description in the .INI file of the driver package, though this is something not so easy to do.

SOURCE: Umax PowerLook 2100XL - Driver
this download page on the UMAX site
and select your device (Scanner), then your scanner model (Powerlook 2100XL) , and your operating system, then press the "SEARCH" key.
Each page in the Download Area is in two languages - first German, then English, so page down to the English section.
Follow the instructions to download the correct driver for your scanner / operating system combination.
Note there is currently no driver available for Windows Vista.
