    How I got my UMAX Astra 4450 scanner to work in Windows 7 (Probably will work with Vista)

    Install the driver for Windows XP

    Plug in scanner (driver won't install correctly)

    Go to Device Manager - Find USB scanner driver with error.

    Right click USB driver - Select "Update Driver Software" - "Browse my computer for driver software" (include subfolders box checked)

    Browse to "VstaScan" folder on C:\ drive. Next - Let it update. This worked on Windows 7 32 bit system.

Vista isn't supported on this scanner by umax.com.

Drivers were never updated after 2002

UMAX ASTRA 4100/4600 DRIVER FOR VISTA / WINDOWS 7


Hi,

I don't know about Windows 7, but I'm using my Astra 4600 on Windows Vista.

Umax said on its website that the Astra series of scanners are not supported for Windows Vista/7. I suppose this is to get us to buy new scanners...

I searched all around the internet for my driver, but couldn't get one. Finally I tried one more time using the CD that came with my scanner. Of course it doesn't work if you run Setup.exe from the CD --- it will just tell you that the OS is not supported. So I went to Device Manager and deleted the scanner under the "unknown USB device" section, and unplugged the scanner.

When I replugged the scanner, I let Vista install the driver automatically. Of course it couldn't, as Microsoft doesn't support it either. Then the install wizard asked me to put in the CD that came with the scanner. And that did the job! Vista was able to ignore the fact that the driver wasn't written specifically for Vista, and the scanner is working!

I hope you have the same luck with yours.

Happy new year.
