Tips and Tricks!

For those of you who really like the interface and are familiar with Scanning Master 21+ and do not want to migrate to Scanning Master Pro Color but need to upgrade your IS2xx scanner to a CSX5xx there is good news.

When using the legacy Scanning Master 21+ software on a newer scanner like a Graphtec CSX500 there the newer scanner configuration models are not available.  The solution to this dilemma is to launch the software using one of the command line tags.

For example start scanning master for a CS500-11eN-PRO looks like:
C:ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsScanning Master 21+Scanning Master 21+ –tCS500-11eN-PRO  (the underlined section of the command line is what needs to be added to the regular launch.  Note that the beginning “t” must be lower case)

This is all documented in the help screens within the Scanning Master Pro & 21+ software(s).

That is all that needs to be done.  Happy scanning!
