I've recently bought a new Astra 1220P parallel scanner. Following the manufacturer's instructions, I've connected it to my parallel printer port (LPT1) and installed the enclosed software package (including the latest driver: VistaScan 3.1).
Now, ever since I'm trying to run the scanner and the mouse freezes (although, the scan test has completed successfully).
The mouse is defined as a standard serial mouse connected to the COM1 serial port.
The device manager shows no conflict in memory addresses or IRQs, however, trying to change settings didn't help .
I'm using Windows 95 on a 486DX2 66Mhz PC
