I have been trouble trying to connect my scanner, a paperport 7600USB. It goes through the whole process of trying to install but when it get done, it says cannot connect that MAXKERNL.DLL is missing and all the time it is naming paperport. I have other .dll’s missing. I went to a site where you can download all kinds of dll files,. I have tried to download the MAXKERNL.dll file but it comes back and says the same thing that it is missing and names paperport. I have tried everything that I have read in how to retrieve this dll file, but nothing seems to work. I even went to the paperport site and tried to use the patch in dowload and install but says the same thing. How can I retrieve this MAXKERNL.dll so that I can install my scanner. If I were to purchase another scanner of a different brand would I receive the same message. After receiving this message that it could not complete installation because of the dll file missing, I then go to add remove to remove the paperport installation, so even though it is showing installation could not be completed it is showing that it is. What can I do, like I ask, could I just get another scanner, would this help the problem? Or is the MAXKERNL.DLL used for a variety of other installations and applications. I just don’t know what to do, Begging for your help.
