1. ScanGear CS 8.6 Features
ScanGear CS 8.6 for Windows (hereafter referred to as "ScanGear CS")
is a 32-bit TWAIN-compliant scanner driver for Canon CanoScan 4200F
scanner. When this driver is selected from within a TWAIN-compliant
application program, this scanner can be used to scan image data.
2. A General Tip on Usage
o Only run one application at a time that is actively linked to
ScanGear CS. Do not open more than one application that is actively
linked to ScanGear CS.
Also, do not open ScanGear CS more than once to acquire an image in
the same application.
o If you scan a very large image at high resolution, some applications
may determine that there is not enough disk space to scan and save
the image, and will return an error.
o If the image size is large, such as when you scan a large image at a
high resolution, for using some applications, the progress bar may
freeze at 0% due to limitations of the application.
In this case, click the Cancel button on the progress bar, and then
select a smaller area or lower resolution and try scanning again.
o With Windows 2000 or XP, the TWAIN data source may not open
correctly from time to time when the system file is in the NTFS
For security reasons, the TWAIN module cannot be written to the
"winnt" directory. For details, contact your system administrator.
o Always close the ScanGear CS main window before you exit the parent
o With Windows 2000 or XP, the system administrator is required to
install or uninstall ScanGear CS.
o Certain personal computers (including laptops) may not restart
correctly from standby mode when the scanner is attached. If this
occurs, please reboot the computer.
o The scanner button may not operate after you install the driver. In
this case, restart the system.
o When you preview or scan an image with a relatively uniform
background, the Auto Tone function may change its coloring.
If this occurs, reset the Auto Tone.
o With Windows Me, the scanner may not be detected after the USB cable
has been disconnected and reconnected. If this occurs, please reboot
3. Running ScanGear CS with Specific Applications
o Some applications may close ScanGear CS automatically after scanning.
o Some application programs may hide the TWAIN user interface.
In this case, refer to the application programer's manual to find
out the required setting changes to show the TWAIN user interface.
o Images after the first image can not be passed on to the linked
application when the Multi Photo Scan function is used with
Microsoft Word 2000, Excel 2000 or PowerPoint 2000.
4. Notes when using the scanner after switching users in Windows XP
o The scanner may be unable to operate if a large portion of the
system resources, such as the memory, is being used by another user.
In this case, close any programs that are open in the other user
environment before scanning.
