I have a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard.
I own a scanner that was discontinued a couple of years ago (a Mustek A3 USB), and that comes only with drivers for Windows XP, Vista, and Mac OS 9.
I am using CodeWeavers' CrossOver and was wondering whether it is possible to install a scanner driver in a CrossOver flask, and utilize a Windows program to scan images with it? I'm not quite sure what aspects of Windows CrossOver emulates (it's not a full Windows kernel after all), and whether scanner support is possible.
I am aware of the "normal" way to do this - using VirtualBox to set up a virtual machine with Windows XP in it. This is the way I will go if all else fails; using CrossOver would just be so much more convenient than setting up a full Windows machine....
The scanner is old, but high-quality and huge (A3 Format), so buying a new one isn't really an option.
