The link in the other post has a "what can I do" with some alternative programs to try to get it running. The "fix" may simply be to get a newer USB scanner with Win 10 support (if that is what you are running). Assuming there is always a fix for something is not correct, were you able to find one before you did the post? If you could not find a fix with a web search not much else to try.
