I am new to this site. I have very basic computer skills with no knowledge of computer programming.
When I upgraded the operating system on my old computer (Gateway 450SP) from Windows 98se to XPPro I could not find a driver for my Black Widow (Devcom) 9636 PRO scanner which would work.
On the SANE web site "Sane-pie backend" is listed as having been tested on the DEVCOM 9636PRO and works OK but the downloading and installation of this backend appears to be a daunting task for someone without any knowledge of computer programming. If the source package needs to be compiled I would not have a clue about how to go about that.
I would, therefore, be very obliged if someone could provide me with a detailed step by step guide of each operation /procedure required to download and install the Sane-pie Backend (driver) on my computer. From where do I download this driver and to where on my computer do I install it? The information given on the Sane web site appears to be written for professionals and is away above my head.
If I can succeed in installing the Sane backend will I also require to install a Sane frontend or could I use the WidowView software (twain) supplied with the scanner?
Processor Intel 450 MHz Pentium 111.
Operating System Windows XPPro Service Pack2
192 MB SDRAM
Hard Drive 60GB 38GB free
Graphic Card Voodoo 3 3000 16MB
SCSI interface card. The installed card is the one that was bundled with the Black Widow.
