    I had problems with my Epson 4180 scanner - haven't figured it out yet - using Win 7 build 7048x64 and build 7057 x64.

    When/if I get it to work - I'll let you know.

    Sandro,

    I have the scanner working in build 7057 x64, as it was in 7048 x64. The Epson software doesn't seem to install properly, but the scanner can be used by using Windows Fax and Scan.

    I have tried installing the Epson software in various compatablitly moeds - no luck. Will continue trying.

    it sucks there is no ACT for Windows 7 yet, it is good for when software doesn't want to work on different versions of windows when it did on previous versions.

    I had it working on Win 7 beta at one point - last couple of builds - no good.

    Compatibility

    The Perfection 4180 scanner is compatible up to and through Vista. MS states that it was conscious of compatibility issues in the development of Win7 and that, as a rule, compatibility issues with Vista soft/hardware should be minimized; what is compatible in Vista will be compatible in Win7. As Win7 is further developed and supported, drivers will have to be updated by vendors to take advantage of the Win7 platform. In the mean time, what to do?

    1. Keep an eye on the Win7 compatibility list;
    2. Check for updated drivers, whether with MS or the soft/hardware vendor;
    3. Try to install/launch drivers/progs in Compatibility Mode which I find works most of the time.

    I think in most instances the issue will be resolved as new drivers are released.

    Yes. The way to get Epson scanners working.
    Extract the original epson x.exe file with something like WinRar or 7zip.
    Then use old school method by going into device manager or printers and scanners, and doing a driver update and pointing to the files extracted. Look for the x.inf file.
    Worked for me!
    P.S this has to be done after trying the install that has been done by other members.

    I've got my Epson RX585 and Nikon LS50 scanner to work.
    This works if you have another O.S partition like Vista installed. Probably works for XP if you haven't got Vista

    In Windows 7 go to Device Manager, uninstall the driver and when prompted, choose update driver and browse to the Vista Windows System 32 installation partition and the scanner driver will be installed from there.

    It took me a couple of goes to get it, but I've done it several times now as I install the new beta's to a formatted partition.

    You can install the trial version of VueScan from Ed Hamrick. You can then use the Nikon software, Vuescan installs a driver for a 64 bit OS. Nikon scanner will then run on a 64bit installation.

    It was the final part of the jigsaw that persuaded me to go x64.

    VueScan work very well instead of EpsonScan in x64 base.
