I have installed the Epson scanner software. There were some issues related to the USB filter settings, but they have been cleared up after installing
the VirtualBox extension pack. I also have to install the "Guest Additions" package, I believe, in order to move files between the virtual machine and
the host machine.
I have an issue at the moment with the Virtual machine "capturing" the computer mouse so that I cannot float between machines. I can't even move the
mouse to the VirtualBox menu bar. It is stuck on the Win 7 desktop. It wasn't that way right after installation. I had no trouble moving the mouse
around, but I must have changed some setting and screwed things up.
I'm going to do a complete shut down of the host system and restart. I don't write down every change I make when I do this kind of work, rather
burrowing around like a mole, unfortunately.
Anyway, bottom line. I did get the scanner started and did do a scan, so that is a giant leap forward. I appreciate very much the suggestions from the
interested members. I wouldn't have thought of the virtual machine on my own since most of my experience was years earlier in the development of such
I'm going to iron out the remaining wrinkles and put it to bed. Thanks again, all.
