I'm using ----------------
Canon scanner -- "CanoScan n1240u".
Windows XP Pro
Windows Office XP Pro
IrfanView Ver.: 3.95

HERE IS WHAT I DID -----------------
A few days ago, I scanned photos using Microsoft Office Document Scanning /
Imaging software. They were automatically saved as TIF files. I then opened
them in IrfanView and saved them as JPG files. Everything worked perfectly.

HERE IS THE PROBLEM -----------------
Today, using the same software and hardware -- nothing changed -- images are
automatically saved as TIF files, just as they did a few days ago, but
IrfanView will not open new images scanned today. IrfanView gives me this
ERROR Message: "TIF Decode Error! -- Invalid or Unsupported TIF file". It
managed to open one color image scanned as a color image, but it opened it
as a black-and-white image.

Can anyone help?

1. Your question was answered in the Office.misc newsgroup.
2. Do not multi-post. If you must post to more that one newsgroup,
cross-post.
3. A Windows XP newsgroup is NOT the place to seek answers to problems with
MS Office. See #1.
