"As Microsoft continues to release new versions of it's Windows operating system, the requirements for peripherals and software change," said Murray L. Dennis, Visioneer President and CEO. "Visioneer scanners are designed to leverage the tools and features included with the operating systems that are current when products are released. When feasible, we develop scanner drivers for new versions of Windows. On the day Windows XP was released, Visioneer had more scanners qualified to wear the Designed for Windows XP logo than any other scanner maker. In spite of our best efforts, major changes in the underlying architecture of Windows XP make it impossible to write new drivers for many of our older model scanners. We created our new trade-up program specifically to support these legacy customers."
