I deleted all files and preferences associated with the older version of AI, reinstalled this one, and it worked.

Tiger and Umax 4500

Hi guys,
my Umax 4500 Scanner isn't working with Tiger.
I'm using SF Launcher D-2.0.8 and Silverfast SE v6.4.1r7d.
The start screens appears, the scanner is respnding for a second, after that the application crashes.
Even a clean reinstall doesn't fix this behavior.

Here is the crash report:

I'm having trouble with my Umax 4000U. Just downloaded trial version of 6 today, but it hangs up on starting in both the app and the PS plug-in, until finally I have to force quit. I'm happy that there's finally some software I can (potentially) use in OS X, but needless to say, I won't be buying the full version until I know that it actually works...

It certainly is encouraging to return to this forum 10 days later and see that I still have the most recent post in this thread. Thanks very much for all of your help.

No solution yet, but at least a reason:

Dear Scheisseler

the Umax Astra 4000U hadn't been supported under OSX at all:
The information has been available all the time.

Please note that the purpose of the imaging forum is not to provide personal support. It is intended to serve as a platform for imaging professionals for exchange of experience and communicating ideas [ viewtopic.php?p=9763&highlight=9763 ].

Thank you in anticipation of your kind co-operation.

Umax Astra 4500/4700/6700

Dear Umax Astra users

unfortunately it now is official: There won't be any drivers for the Umax Astra 4500/4700/6700 series to run these scanners under Tiger (Mac OSX 10.4) developed by Microtek.
In consequence, LaserSoft Imaging unfortunately cannot create appropriate versions of SilverFast, too.

Best regards
