Installing an HP G-3110 Scanner on Windows 7


With the advent of Windows 7, some manufacturers have not created specific software to run their products properly on Win 7.

This recently happened to me, with my new G-3110 scanner.

The setup disc had no instructions/drivers for Win 7, and HP indicated to me that the driver set would not be available for another month or two.

The tip here, is as follows:

Go to the HP website, find the 'full setup' software download option for the G-3110, and download it.

After the DL is complete, right click on the icon for the file you just downloaded, and run the setup in 'Compatibility Mode'. You may or may not have choices. At this moment, Vista and XP both will be viable choices for the install in the Compatibility Mode, for Win 7...

Hope this helps some people out, until HP releases the proper software for Windows 7.

Addendum to this tip, written on January 21, 2010...

HP has FINALLY added Windows 7 drivers and software to their site., You can now download the software for the HP G-3110 scanner online. Go to www.hp..com, and choose the Download drop down box; input the G-3110 scanner and performa and run the download.

If this helps anyone, a click on the VERY HELPFUL icon would be appreciated!!! Thanks! .

why my HP color laser jet cm1015mfp all in one not installing correct with my laptop win 7 64bit

According to the HP website:
"The Universal Print Driver (UPD) for the HP Color LaserJet CM1015 and CM1017 Multifunction Products might not be the best driver choice for this product because UPDs are typically print-only . There are no product-specific Windows 7 print/scan drivers available for this product.
While these products do not have a Windows 7-specific solution, you can run the HP product software created for the Windows Vista operating system on a Windows 7 PC in compatibility mode to enable full product software functionality.
This is the recommended Windows 7 solution to obtain the most software features for the HP Color LaserJet CM1015 and CM1017 MFPs."

I changed my system from Windows XP to Windows 7 Ultimate, the Crystal Eye Cam doesn't work anymore. I was advised by a friend to download the driver, but I don't know what to download. There are so many drivers for this 4730Z. One time, I tried 1 (suyin), but i doesn't work. (Maybe I was not able to do the "RUN" correctly) I uninstall it from the program file. Please help. Thanks.

well look to the manufacture and only use manufacture drivers, any other could cause you a problem, most should be backwards compatible for win 7, but in this case there might be a specific on for win 7 for that specific camera, because win 7 graphics are different, i would consult the manufacture

We just upgraded to Windows 7 and we cant get our old invoice program to load. Its Proventure Invoices & Estimates version 1.0.0B . Can you help us?

Your accounting software may not be compatible with Windows 7. Check the manufacturer's website to see if it is or not.

You can also try the Windows 7 compatibility fix.

To do this, follow Microsoft's suggestions here.

My driver or software for SGH-A412 is not supported by Windows 7. What can I do about it?

A work around is to install Virtual PC 2007 on your computer, create a virtual machine and install Windows XP (or any other operating system that supports your device).

This is probably your only solution until your device receives official Windows 7 support.
