Office and Epson scanner stopped working together
Epson Perfection 3170 Photo, stopped working through Word 2000, and Publisher 2000, it as worked well for years this way.
The menus are still there Insert / picture / from Scanner but nothing happens.
I tried Detect and Repair with the scanner switch on, no difference
I tried changing the leads, made no difference, and in another usb point no difference all thought it said New Hardware Found and reinstalled it.
I tried it in Open Office and it works through it, saved the scan on the page and saved as a Word document, in Photoshop Elements it works OK
So the problem must be in Office
