3) What I ended up doing. At my office we were just forced to take new computers with Vista. The IT department wouldn't connect our office scanner to Vista because they said it was incompatible. So, I brought in an old laptop I no longer use and connected the scanner (as well as a colour printer). Because the IT's permissions policies do not allow me to install software on the Vista machine, any client software has to be a "portable" EXE to function. I got around this whole problem by putting a VNC server on my personal laptop and a small VNC client on the Vista machine, and setting it up so the client connects directly to the scanner software when logging in, without getting access to the rest of the laptop. Works just fine, and there's an added benefit in that anybody else in the office can also connect to the scanner through their internet browser because the VNC server has a mini HTTP server built-in. You could do the same thing with the Remote Desktop server built-in to Windows.
