I don't know off hand the driver. I had to download a new one from ank given to me by HP to cure a problem between the scanner and printer as they feed off the same parallel port.)

Since posting my first message, I have talked to a lot of people with sucessful downloads of PAF 5. Only one had problems. When he would run it, nothing came up on the screen and his machine locked up. This happened every time he tried to run it. He ran the PAF5 set up several time with the same results. After about 5 tries at running set up the machine started to work OK and has given him no more trouble running PAF5.

I don't know what version of PAF5 I have, but it is the one downloaded from the church site over the last three weeks.

Hope this will help some. Thanks for your prompt reply to my scream for help as I don't want to be stuck with PAF4 forever. :-)
