I also have an older Epson Perfection 1200 scanner from my
Windows XP days, (complete with transparency scanning unit) which
wouldn't work on Windows 7 or 10, but I found a work around in
installing a driver for a newer Epson scanner which is compatible
with my computer and my scanner. It tricks the computer into
thinking it is working with a newer scanner. Same interface.
For details, send me a private message.

Re you HP scanner, I too, have a nice scanner from the Win XP era
that I could not get to run on Win 8. The installer disagreed with
permissions or something.
Anyway, I have an old XP laptop so I just pull that and the
scanner out of the garage and scan away! Saves space on the desk
too as I don't scan very often.
(we have a all in one printer for day to day scanning quick
You should be able to find an old laptop with XP on it for cheap.
I did a fresh XP install on it too, to clear off all the crap.
Just do not go online with it as they are vulnerable to viruses
