I have Acrobate ver 9 pro and now when I try to scan to PDF, the software can no longer find my scanner. I have tried to reinstall the scanner, but that did not fix the problem. The scanner software that cam with my scanner does not have a problem finding the scanner. Any ideas

Error Message: "Error while interacting with scanner: the selected scanner was not found"
I have checked for updates and none were found. Ran the "Repair Acrobat Installation" under the help menu. Also, deleted all of the temp files.
I would like to mention that Acrobat 9 is not compatible with Windows 7, please visit this link for more information: Adobe Acrobat system requirements.

Also Acrobat 9 is quite an older version of Acrobat. So please try latest acrobat DC trial version Download Adobe Acrobat free trial | Acrobat Pro DC
I went to Document's tab selected custom scan and it allowed my the option to change the scanner and select the correct on as by default it was not recognizing the connected scanner. Hope this helps
