"nothing enabled" means you haven't turned on a scanlist containing something for it to scan.

The other mystery error that's possible is "HEAP ERROR" - this translates to "unassigned objects" meaning that you have stuff in Win500 that is not assigned to any scanlist (and the scanner doesn't like that and complains as soon as you push almost any button). You can find these unassigned objects quite easily with Win500.

Be patient. This scanner makes everyone feel stupid for awhile. Quite awhile for some of us. But it's a really great scanner once you learn how to make it go.

Catchy thread title :)

I was expecting to read about a purchaser buying a scanner privately and receiving a Box of Rocks :lol:

Hum, I have a lot of items "unassigned" to scan lists, and have never had a "HEAP" error!
The term "unassigned" when describing "Heap Error" means that a TGRP object is not assigned to any TSYS, not that the TGRP is not assigned to any scan list.
