Although the readme specifically saying only Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista are supported, I think you can try install in Windows ME as well. Here is the clause:

With Windows Me, the scanner may not be detected after the USB cable has been disconnected and reconnected. If this occurs, please reboot the computer.
