Multi scanner use

Postby DavidOC » Mon Jul 17, 2017 2:39 pm

I have two scanners, an Epson Perfection 4990 and also a Canoscan 9000F. If I purchase Silverfast software will it operate on both scanners or is each download of Silverfast specific to the scanner initially specified. Will I need to purchase an edition of the software for each scanner?

Dear user,

SilverFast is developed specifically for each command set and chipset of a given scanner model range in order to achieve our goal: optimal scanning results.
Thus you cannot use a SilverFast Version developed for one scanner for a different one, even if the scanners in question come from the same manufacturer.

However, if you already own a SilverFast license you are eligible to buy another version of SilverFast for a discount price.
You can directly purchase an additional license through our web store.
Simply select "Additional license" for the license type and enter your existing scanner data.

Or contact our sales (sales(at) for further information.

Kind regards,
