I have an EPSON Perfection 3170 Photo scanner which I have been unable to use in Vista Ultimate x64 (RTM Build 6000) for lack of a device driver.
During my daily check of Vista drivers today, I was excited to see that EPSON has released a TWAIN Driver and EPSON Scan utility Version 3.04A for Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit Editions.
I quickly downloaded it and attempted to install it.
In the middle of the installation, the following error message is displayed in the "EPSON Scan Setup" dialog window: "Could not copy files. Check the setup disc, then run setup again. C:\Users\Gerry\AppData\Local\Temp\\setup.ini"
OK. Maybe I have to run the setup as an administrator, so I tried again. The same error message followed by another error message in the "EPSON Scan Setup" dialog window: "An error occurred during setup. Restart your computer, then run setup again."
OK. Maybe restarting my computer will fix the problem.
Wishful thinking on my part. I encounter the same exact error even after restarting the computer!
What has happened to Quality Control and Quality Assurance?
Are companies like EPSON actually testing their software before they are released to the general public?
The general public has become the guinea pigs for these companies who don't really give a damn about their customers.
