I've read the post about a solution may/should be out to resolve this issue sometime in the next year... that is not my question.
I'm given to understand that the issue is one of some Scanner Manufacturers not actually making 64bit drivers. If this is the case, there ought to be some scanners that actually do function with the 64bit version of CorelDraw x6. And I'm looking for some discussion and answers from the Community as to some examples from their personal experiences of which ones will.
If someone actually succeds in supplying such info, it would be fabulous. When Microsoft launched Windows 7, regardless of 32 or 64 bit, they supplied their Virtual Machine, so that companies especially, would be able to run their hardware such as scanner and inkjet/laset office printers.
Still the information, confirmation from Gerard/Corel to your question is a very good official announcement.
If you right now is in the situation of biying a scanner, some scanners come with their own scanner software, which may not be 64 bit, but 32 bit, and which you can run on a 64 bit computer. My own office printer of daily use, Canon LiDE 210 comes with a Canon software called MP Navigator. You will be able to scan with it on a 64 bit computer. You will be able to make a setting quite easy, within their MP Navigator software to have your scanned images opened in your 64 bit CorelDRAW & PHOTO-PAINT.
