Epson Perfection 1240u photo

I have an Epson Perfection 1240u which I want to use to copy photo slides the trouble is I bought this some years ago when I was using a 32bit system.
There isn't a 64bit driver available so it won't work I have installed Vu-Scan but with this the computer does not see the scanner anybody any ideas

    Try the vista drivers:

    I know it's a different model but the link below explains how to get around that.

    I had the same problem and did the following and my 1240 now works perfectly on Windows 7 64-bit

    Download Epson Perfection 2400 64 bit driver from Epson website.

    Install Epson driver (epson12180.exe) I installed them all but think think you probably only need to install 2400.

    Connect Scanner. Find it in Device Manager. Right-click > Update driver software > Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer (select imaging device if it asks type) > Epson perfection 2400. You're done.
