Imaging for Windows is NOT included in Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8
Global360 Imaging for Windows compatible with Windows XP
Kodak Imaging for Windows (kodakimg.exe) was included in the Microsoft Windows operating system
starting with Windows 95, up to and including Windows 2000. The versions
included with Windows are supported by Microsoft.
Imaging for Windows is not,
however, part of Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. It is not legal to install Imaging for Windows
from older versions of Windows on Windows XP or later. For Windows XP, Windows
Vista and Windows 7 you
must purchase a licence to use Imaging on each PC.
Global 360 Imaging for Windows was previously Wang, Kodak, eiStream and Eastman Imaging for Windows

Beginning with Windows 95 OSR2, Microsoft included with
the operating system an application and a set of ActiveX controls referred to
collectively as "Microsoft Imaging" consisting of image scanning,
viewing/editing, thumbnail and administration controls, originally developed by
Wang, then acquired by Kodak and subsequently named Eastman, eiStream and
Microsoft has dropped these controls from Windows
XP. Imaging for Windows is currently available from Alliance Group, see Imaging
for Windows for more details. This product installs two
applications - Imaging for Windows and Imaging Preview - together with ActiveX
controls that are accessible to external programs. The current release of
Imaging for Windows is upwardly compatible with those versions included in
earlier versions of Windows and adds additional features such as Optical
Character Recognition (OCR). The imaging ActiveX controls are required for a
number of other products, including Alliance
Imager document management and Alliance BatchScan
Judging from the number of Internet searches for "wang +
imaging", "microsoft + imaging", "kodak + imaging" and
"imgedit.ocx" etc. there appears to be considerable interest in these
tools. It is not however possible to use the old Windows versions in Windows XP.
A new version of Imaging for Windows (release 2.8) can
now be purchased for use on Windows XP and Windows Vista (and previous versions of Windows). It is
compatible with the Imaging for Windows included with the earlier versions of
Windows and now includes Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and other
