Reposted from my blog: My move from running RedHat on the desktop back to Windows 7 hasn't been too bumpy. Only one big driver corruption issue that took me a couple of days to solve, but it seems running Windows is like riding a bike. I have a need to scan a good bit of documents into a single Adobe PDF file. The driver & software package that comes with my Lexmark printer only scans to individual files. I had been using PDF Creator, which has a tool to suck up all the individual jpegs and put them in a PDF. It was clunky, and often files would be out of order. I went on a search today to find another tool to meet my needs. I tried 5 different freeware or shareware programs. The first four didn't function in some way. Most just errored out, one didn't even run. I finally found NAPS (Not Another PDF Scanner). The only problem I have is that the default permissions on the program folder in which it runs keeps it from saving a config file. Running it as Administrator worked for setting up my profile. Now it runs fine as under regular permissions. Just wanted to share to possible save someone else some time. Cheers!

this is very promising. it is small and installed without a hitch. it located my network scanner easily. the scan interface is very clean; i scanned in two test pages. the save pdf function saved them to a single pdf file, just what i wanted it to do. i'm up to this issue: in the profile, the fields that choose paper size, etc, are all greyed out. i would like to change a4 to u.s. letter. what am i missing? where is a better place to ask questions like this? well, here it is a couple of weeks later. i still think "promising" is correct, but it does not look as though the promise will ever be realized. it's been years since this was worked on, and i can find no way to contact the developer. in my most recent attempt to use naps, it did successfully scan in 12 pages and write them to a single pdf file. however, immediately after the write, the program crashed. and, the file it wrote was 22mB compared to 7mB for scantopdf.com's 20 dollar basic program. i'm giving up on naps now.
Nice software, used it on Windows 7 to scan from canon MP530 and save to pdf. Run it as Administrator to add profiles first.
