HP Solution Center Crashes On Vista x64 Due to Tablet-Related Bug
HP Solution Center (the scanning software for HP Scanners and All-In-One
devices) crashes when tablet functionality is enabled in Vista, for example,

issue with Microsoft Support due to my PID not being recognised (I bought my
copy of Vista from

PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAASSEE help! This problem is affecting lot of customers,
as the use of HP scanners with tablets is extremely common with graphical

My specific software hardware is:
-Vista Ultimate x64
-HP Solution Center v9.0 with Hp ScanJet 5590
-Wacom Intuos 2 with driver v6.04
