mustek scanner drivers

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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
