    i've tried installing a win2k mustek driver for my scanner but it's a clever little driver cuz it recognises it aint a win2k operating system. i've seen on this web site there is away round this by editing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/WindowsNT/CurrentVersion/ProductName to read Microsoft Windows 2000 instead of XP. the problem is i can't see the "ProductName" bit.

    Any ideas??

    Dont hold your breath, my Dad had to by a new scanner with this problem.

    However its here
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
    as you say.

    If not add:

    new string value under current version
    name it : ProductName
    value: Microsoft Windows XP (TE)

    try that
