If you have’t already read our post on it, a little over a year ago one of our technicians, Sauron (yes, that’s pronounced exactly how you think it is, Lord of the Rings fans), figured out a way to make the Bell & Howell 8000 Spectrum XF Scanner Series compatible with Windows 7. Hooray, Sauron!
That was absolutely fantastic then, but even more fantastic now. Why? Because in April of 2014 (just a couple short months away), Windows will no longer support Windows XP. If you’re currently running XP and use a Spectrum XF scanner, updating to Windows 7 could cause a problem or two (or ten).
Luckily, we at Imaging System (and of course, Sauron), are here to help. We’re offering a Spectrum XF Windows 7 Installation package to help you have a smooth transition into Windows 7. Here are the details:
What am I buying? You are paying for the hour of service including the guided installation of VRS 4.5 on Windows 7 (32 bit), which will enable you to use your Spectrum XF scanner with a computer running Windows 7.
How much does it cost? The cost is $400.
What is included? A PDF of complete instructions to ensure that this process can be repeated, a VRS 4.5 installation disk with file and folder names that match the installation instructions, and one hour of guided service.
How soon can I start? After you purchase the software, we’ll ship you the installation disk and email you the PDF. Once you receive them, you should call (608) 276-5559 and ask for Sauron or send an email to email@example.com to make an appointment.
What do I need? Besides the PDF instructions and the installation disk that we send you, you will need:
- Windows 7 (32 bit) with no previous version of VRS installed
- Fully functioning Bell and Howell Spectrum XF Scanner
- Functioning Kofax Adrenaline 650i PCI card
- Fully operational SCSI cable
- Administrative rights to the target computer.
How do I buy this? Great question. You can call or email Sauron! If you have any questions, he’s your go-to guy too! If you forgot already, the phone number is (608) 276-5559 (ask for Sauron) or his email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
