    I have tried repeatedly to install a Visioneer 8600
    scanner to my new computer with Windows XP but it will not
    install correctly. I have downloaded the driver from the
    Visioneer website but it still does not work.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to make it work?

    Thank you.

  2. Remove all the Visioneer software what you have
    installed. Disconnect the scanner. Re-install the
    software. Install the WinXP Driver. At this point the
    system will prompt you to connect the scanner. Try this
    out because I have the same scanner working
