TWAIN error (TWCC_BUMMER)

    Hello,

    I'm having a strange problem that has come up on a Windows XP Home
    with SP2. It has a TWAIN scanner connected to USB. It comes up with
    a TWAIN error (General failure. Source immediately unloaded.) This
    error happens when the twain scanning applet is called from another
    program. If I run the program at the command line it functions
    perfectly. Nothing that I know of has been changed on the computer. I
    tried System Restore to go back a few days, but that didn't fix the
    problem. It seems to be a Windows issue with the way external
    programs are run and the resources available to them.

    I tried to uninstall and reinstall the scanner driver, but that didn't
    seem to help.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Mike

    I suggest going to the
    scanners home site
    and download any updates
    they have available.

    they usually have their
    proprietary software for
    use with the scanner.

    so I would download the
    entire package they have
    provided for their scanner.
