We are trying to install both an HP scanner and a Kodak scanner on an XP machine and the problem is that HP's scanner driver always places itself into the first and default scanner device position. We are using an automation software on that machine which must use the Kodak scanner as the default scanner. The HP flatbed isn't needed to be the default scanner on that machine and it will always be used manually through its own software. Our developers did some research 2 years ago and couldn't find a solution. Nowadays we are preparing to expand our user base and this problem did surface again on off-site user machines with the same configuration.
I did a more aggresive search on the net and found some tips like this one : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/115486
I couldn't realize how to suit this solution to my scenario. Could someone please point me to the right direction ?
