No experience with this nice little error, so went to google:

Lot of hits. I only looked at the from Epson itself: run the program in Windows 98 compatability mode.

It might help to download the latest drivers from the Epson site. It's hard to believe they aren't yet fully supporting Windows XP.

Hope this helps.

We got some great deals on the CX5200 and CX5400, so my family has three or four of these particular "all in ones". The software installations were very specific on how it was to be done. In my case, I installed the CX5400 prior to my XP SP2 update. AFter updating to SP2, it still worked fine and had no problems. Apparently, that's not the case with you.

Try cleaning out the "Temp" folder mentioned and all others.

I see above that you uninstalled most of the Epson programs, but it's important to uninstall the "Twain" stuff also. Here's a link or two that might help:

What can I do if I see an error message when installing Smart Panel 2.6a with Windows XP SP1?

Who can I contact for assistance with the creative software that comes with the printer?

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
