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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
