Bear Paw 1200Cu plus under windows 7 64

installed bear paw 1200Cu plus drivers under Windows7 64

this is an achievement! bear paw 1200Cu is a very old scanner and so far it was not possible to set up it under win7 64 bit. but now a combination of

1) st install ftp://ftp.mustek.com.tw/pub/driver/BearPaw/1200CUPLUS/Windows7/setup.exe
2) nd install http://www.mustek.de/11/images/stories/mustek_products/Scanner/BearPaw/1200cuplus/driver/vista64/web64.exe from http://www.mustek.de/11/index.php/en/service-a-drivers-2/treiber-a-software/269-downloads/166

did it.

maybe just second link was enough ? but anyway after installing both and rebooting ( just rebooting with first one will cause windows crash ) everything works.So I’m able to use this old, but still useful scanner from time to time.

    Maybe you should contact the Mustek company and ask them to link to your blog… they still do not have any drivers for win7!

  • Mr S Virdi

    Hi,
    PLEASE can you give specific instructions as you say yourself that you cannot remember the order in which you installed the drivers – just the first or 1st one then second?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mr S Virdi

    • admin

      Yes, install first, then immediately ( no reboot ) install second , just installing only one ( either first or second ) will not make a trick, so do as it described

  • Mr S Virdi

    Hi,

    I have tried the above – no luck!

    It just says Scanner not ready when I try to do a scan.

    Finally, should I have connected the usb cable before or after the 2 drivers – as I connected it after. Any advice?

    Mr S Virdi

    • admin

      I see, but I hardly can help here. As you may see – it helped to some folk, but I cannot guarantee it could work for anyone. No I really remember exactly when and how I attached scanner.

      So – just a pity

  • cris

    Thank you very much bro.
    works perfect

    Great work! Thanks a lot! Work perfectly on Win 7×64!

  • AKS

    Hi, do you have the FIRST (setup.exe) downloaded and available?. The Mustek link is taking over 1 hr 45 mins to download!!!!. No probs with my internet. Appreciate you help.

    • admin

      Hi, see your email in few minutes, I sent you link to setup.exe copy

      • AKS

        Hi, Managed to complete the download from your original link. The scanner works like a charm on Window7/64 bit.

        Just in case any one is interested, I installed the second link 1st and then First link (setup.exe). Restarted laptop, plugged in scanner, Windows found and installed the drivers, Thanks again for persevering and finding this solution. I am sure it will help many others!. Regards

    What a highlight! Without thinking much, just followed your cookbook – and it works!!!!! Would be nice if every installation guide would be so.
    Thanks, Juerg

  • Roman

    Hello,
    In the second link are three files to download.
    Which one should I download?
    Thank you.

  • Minyoung

    “Error reading setup intialization file”. When I trying to instal first link. What’s wrong?

    • http://www.sim-ai.org/blog Sergey Kurdakov

      Maybe a download canceled before a download completed. A file is huge and download is unreliable

    • http://www.sim-ai.org/blog Sergey Kurdakov

      Though really not sure. Might be something different. I will try it now, wait for a while

    • http://www.sim-ai.org/blog Sergey Kurdakov

      Managed to install, here is a temp link here http://www.sim-ai.org/setup.exe
      when you are done with my file , please tell. I will delete

      • Seba

        Yes that was the problem, thanks a lot, everything works fine!

        • http://www.sim-ai.org/blog Sergey Kurdakov

          Ok fine. File is now deleted

  • Tom van Lint

    Hi Sergey, The Mustek FTP site seems to be down. Do you still have the setup.exe lying around somewhere?
    Thanx in advance!

    • http://www.sim-ai.org/blog Sergey Kurdakov

      Downloading the file – their FTP works for me, as soon as it is done, will post link here

    • http://www.sim-ai.org/blog Sergey Kurdakov
  • Tom van Lint

    Got it, thanx. Weird that the ftp site seems to be down at my end. I’ve installed it and rebooted, but when I try to scan it tells me that the scanner isn”t connected. Does it matter that I don’t have the “Plus” version? In device manager the drivers are installed and the scanner is visible. So the web64 drivers seem to be installed.

    • http://www.sim-ai.org/blog Sergey Kurdakov

      cannot say. It was quite a bit of time that I did not use the scanner, so cannot recall all the details

    • http://www.sim-ai.org/blog Sergey Kurdakov

      maybe the only way is to have old XP system under VMWare ( there is free version for personal use https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_player/6_0 ) and then use scanner from that environment.

  • DCiep

    Hi Sergey, I run the steps as you said, and it doesnt work “The scanner is not connected” dialog box appears.
    Im trying on a Windows7 64bits OS. Any ideas? Thanks a lot

    • http://www.sim-ai.org/blog Sergey Kurdakov

      no ideas, sorry,
      the only other alternative I know is to use free VMWARE player and from there ( from winxp ) to use scanner and then copy scanned files from there.
