XP Drivers for Epson GT-7000USB scanner

By HBB ·
I am desperately looking for some scanner drivers.
OS = Windows XP
Scanner = Epson GT-7000 USB
It appears epson are not providing these drivers and forcing clients to upgrade by doing so

Many thanks

It's not just Epson.

Most manufactures have not written XP drivers for printers and scanners that were past the warranty period when XP was released.

Have you tried installing the Windows 2000 driver?

I have a Mustek scanner that I do not wish to replace. They have the following work-around posted fro installing the Windows 2000 driver on a XP box. Perhaps it will work for you.

You can try the following solution:
(This should be attempted only if you are comfortable with the Windows Registry)

Start menu run program "Regedit.exe".
in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
rename the key "ProductName" from "Microsoft Windows XP" to "Microsoft Windows 2000".
Install the driver for Windows 2000.
Undo the changes in the Registry, when you have finished the scanner driver installation.

Try this site. These drivers are for Win 2000. They state they might work with XP. give it a shot if not rollback back the driver
