When you try to scan a new image document and then try to import it into WordPad, you may receive the following error message:
This action cannot be completed because the '' program is not responding


This problem occurs because WordPad times out before the TWAIN data source is loaded.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Windows 2000. Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.
