Just looked at that, and it looks like I'm going to be put in detention againXnTriq wrote:My (beer) gut feeling tells me that an incomplete un-installation prevented a successful re-installation of the driver.
- Cable Forum: Re: Epson 1670 Scanner on Vista
It'll take a while...
What I can say is that the problem arose before ANY changes to XnView or the scanner, and some time in the last 6 weeks or so.
An incomplete un-installation of the Epson may now be present, but it couldn't have been when the problem kicked in.
I never made any changes to the XnView installation as such, which is why I didn't want to try changing its installation now, as I thought that could just complicate an already messy problem.cday wrote:My (non-beer) gut feeling is that the scanner problem could well be due to the extensive changes made to the XnView installation
The 3 files I found that were probably moved were on my data area were these:
Before I moved them they were in a folder one level down, so the last item was just :
& ditto the rest.
I just noted that these files are NOT currently copied to my new NAS data area (F:), and was about to copy them there when I noticed the modified & access dates (actually I got the year wrong and thought they'd been accessed today, which rang alarm bells, as I've not run XnView today - but it was exactly a year ago).
the Un-moved foo.bar file (in OtherDataFileGroups\) was modified 20 March 2014, 22:35:00, but "Accessed" exactly a year ago, 25 March 2013, 06:43:54
what is XnView\TOOLBARBUTTONSETUP\foo.bar ?
and where would you expect it to be?
The moved version (G:\Software-ProgramData\XnView\TOOLBARBUTTONSETUP\foo.bar) shows modified 25 March 2013, 06:44:10 ie just after the unmoved one was last accessed.
This one was last accessed 01 August 2013, 08:44:38
Is this likely to have any bearing on the issue?
If not, my data file movements were not the origin of the problem.
(I did note an issue to do with %systemVariable%/Documents and Settings/%UserName%/Local settings/Temp folder: in the link above - I don't think I've been there, but I'll investigate and see.)
