Is there any possibility of making this printer compatible with windows 7


With Windows 7, I found that installing the Vista software/drivers in the compatibility mode works well.


Right click on the setup.exe file, left click properties, left click compatibility. Change the compatibility to Vista(Try Vista SP2). Then install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect the printer(powered on).


***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***


As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.


Scanning

Scanning using USB connection, open the Dell All-In-One Center, click on scanning and copying and scan from there.

Scanning wirelessly, use the scan buttons on the printer.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Cant install vista from oem disks


Was there any other OS loaded prior to your attempting to load Vista? If so you heed to do a clean install of Vista. The problem with Vista is that it does not accept any drivers other than those already present in its driver database. First check if the component is Vista compatible, if not install a software to run the device(separate). First of all confirm that ur PC is compatible with Vista OS. These diagnostics are available at microsoft "vista upgrade adviser" site.......sodeep

Not a computer problem as such
There is in general an issue with drivers for peripherals of all types and brands with VISTA and it seems the Manufacturer are digging their heels in and not making driver changes.
E-mail Microsoft support and see what they have to say
And keep kicking Epson
It is really up to peripheral manufacturer to keep up.

Meanwhile you could try this
Look up the Vista Help[My Computer- Help]
Check out Program Compatibility
The idea is you set the computer  to pretend is its an older system XP/98 etc and load the program  once that is set.
