Running the OmniPage Scanner Wizard

  2. Click [Next].

  3. Choose [Twain}, then click [Next].

    If the Twain driver is not listed, click on [Other drivers...] and add it.

  4. Click [Yes], then [Next] to test the scanner.

  5. Put the "check mark" in [Configure Advanced Settings], then click [Next].

  6. Choose "Show native user-interface" and then click [Next].

  7. Click [Next].

  8. Make sure there is a "checkmark" in the box marked "with automatic document feeder (ADF)".

  9. Click on [Next] for the next four windows and then click [Finish].

  10. Now you will be able to put a "checkmark" in the box "Use Automatic Document Feeder".
