Hi Dan
I've also had problems with 7.08. Delete the .ini file, open vuescan, enable
'output logfile' set autofocus to 'preview', close vuescan, open it again,
scan sonmething and then zip and email the resultinmg outputlog to Ed at . I've gone back to using 6.7.5 although 7.02 was fine -
I've just deleted it. BTW Ed is now up to 7.09.
