Particularly step 12.

If you post back exactly what you are attempting to do as well as
exact error messages etc, someone may be able to give a more specific
answer.

Hi, Lou.

"Free system resources" is a term that pops up often in Win9x/ME, but you
should seldom if ever see that phrase in WinXP. WinXP handles hardware so
much differently from Win9x/ME that any driver written for one system almost
certainly will not work with the other.

Are you sure the drivers you are trying to use for that scanner are
WinXP-compatible? Have you checked at the scanner maker's website to be
sure you have the current WinXP drivers?

What is the make and model of the scanner?
