Using Vista Home Premium with Canon Canoscan LIDE 70.


Suddenly I cannot get the Scanner to work. I keep getting the message "ABBY Fine Reader OCR Engine. C\Program Files\New Soft\ Presto Page Manager 7.15\ rpp371.jrt\ was not found.
I then get another message " Microsoft Windows. Presto Scan Button Has Stopped Working"
I have checked all connections and they seem okay. Unfortunately I cannot find the original installation CD so unable to uninstall and re-install.
All suggestions gratefully received.

James

Thank you. Contacted Canon help-line. It seems that there is a weakness in the particular software that sometimes causes my problem
I was shown how to get around it by ignoring the controls on the scanner itself and just using theScanner Toolbox programme. Happy to say it works.
