Ok more news on this. Apparently the errors are thrown because that version (240) of ScanMachine can't handle OS_WIN2012 or OS_WIN8. OK'ing the dialog boxes (I had 8 of them) will allow it to continue *correctly*. I was told the errors are "harmless", albeit annoying!
A new version of ScanMachine should be available in the next few days. I will make sure it's attached to the KB:
Once it becomes available.
