Scanner and Cameras Events Tab Error

    I recently installed Nuance PaperPort 11 for Vista onto my computer. I also
    installed the Vista drivers for my HP ScanJet 5590.

    I should be able to assign the five buttons on the front of the 5590 using
    the Events tab on the Scanners and Cameras Control Panel applet in Vista to
    launch PaperPort from any of those buttons. I should then be able to assign
    particular scan profiles for each of those buttons from the Oprions/Buttons
    menus in PaperPort. The latter cannot be done without the former!

    However, when I attempt to change the Action on the Event menu in the
    Control Panel applet, I receive an "Event registration failed" error that
    states, "The attempt to change the registered event handler failed. Please
    make sure the device is turned on and connected properly."

    The device is turned on and connected properly and functions. I have
    attached a snip of the error and screens to this message. If someone has
    experienced this and has a solution, please reply. Thanks!

    Ok really old thread.. but i've searched the internets.. and never di
    find the answer posted anywhere. Found 1/2 the answer posted in the x6
    section.. so I figured I'd finish the answer.. so it's available to th
    internet

    from this thread 'Scanner Event Registration Error - Vista Forums
    (http://tinyurl.com/48b7ya

    It has to do with the permissions. I don't know why that guy's didn'
    work I think maybe because the handler for the scanner is no
    necessarily just in that software folder.. but I went and did thi

    run>regedi
    HKEY_Current_User

    Right click that folde
    Choose Administrator then the Advanced button on the window that pop
    u
    Then I changed it for Administrator, and my regular username.. I'm th
    administrator.. but they're listed separate, so whatever..

    Anway so for administrator
    run>regedi
    HKEY_Current_User
    Click Administrato
    Click advance

    After you've clicked Advanced, click Administrator from the list, the
    edi
    Then select all the boxes in there on the left. full control, quer
    value, etc
    Then hit o
    Then.. muy importante..
    At the bottom of that screen check that box that says replace al
    existing inheritable permissions on all descendants with permission
    from this object

    Now I have no idea if that's something very horrible to do.. It ma
    make your registry vulnerable to mistakes or something
    I also did the same thing for my regular user name users\my name.. jus
    for kick

    I rebooted for good measure.. and then I went t
    control panel>scanner and tried to set the handler again for when
    press the scan button (I wanted it to run the software that came with m
    scanner) and it works... no errors

    Hopefully it works for someone.. and the internet is now a mor
    comprehensive tech support solution :
