Try vmware. I run Probe (DOS software for a Pro-2006) in a vm session under Linux, works great.I have given up on emulators cuz they dont work
First, full disclosure: I have not and do not intend (at this time) to set up an emulator or a vm on my laptop running Ubuntu 8.0.4. I'm not meaning to be obstinate, but on a 1.0 GHz laptop, performance becomes an issue. I have found that often the emulators and VM suites have difficulty using software that routes directly to hardware.
So, that leads to the question: is there any non-Windows-based software out there for programming scanners?
That's really cool. And actually, it might work, but the BIOS on my laptop doesn't understand the concept of booting from a USB device. The only other problem would be the absence of a second USB port.Recently I saw a boot-able WinXP installation on a USB thumb-drive. Maybe that would work?

There's no connection. TOTALLY different operations and development platforms.
