I'm sure SJ664EN.EXE is just the installer. Once installed there may be several applications, with one of their files named HPPRSCAN.EXE, just look in the Windows programs menu for HP.

How to run hpscanjet 4470c on windows 7?


Hi and welcome ned92 !

Solution one:
You can get your unit working in WIA mode if you can follow this :
make sure your XP ( yes XP ) driver is correctly installed .
Download FreeKapture from
http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html
Launch Freekapture , clic on Scan , select WIA-Hewlett-Packard . Your scanner will run . If you choose HP PrecionScan Pro , program will hang .
Note : no slides or negatives scans possible in WIA lode but the rest works .

solution two :
If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.Back up your data first.
Both are easy and safe , no specific knowledge required .

Have a nice day ,
Best regards .

I am trying to revive an HP 6200C scanner (as a substitute for a broken scanner in an Office Jet Pro l7580 printer). When I try to install, the computer, running XP, asks for hpsjrreg.exe. HP site does...


Hello, I've got a hp scanjet 6300c and I downloaded all the software from the hp website....and hpsjrreg.exe is included in the suite or package. Try downloading 6300c s/w and see if you get it that way. Regards, nicam49

Driver for windows7 x64


These instructions will make your scanner work with Windows 7:

1) Go to this link and download the official Hp 5300C WinXP 32-bit drivers

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj664en.exe

2) Run the .EXE

This extracts the files to the directory c:\sj664en

3) Edit the hp53sti.inf file

Find this line:
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\VID_04E6PID_800000402ED4

Insert this line above it:
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Usb.NT,USB\VID_03f0&PID_0701

The section should look like:
; Win2k Models
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Usb.NT,USB\VID_03f0&PID_0701
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\VID_04E6PID_800000402ED4
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\Hewlett-PackardHewle76A2

4) save the file and exit

5) delete HP53STI.CAT

6) Install the driver

Open Device Manager

Find the HP Scanjet device in teh device tree (yellow exclamation mark no doubt)

Right click it

Select Properties

Select Update Driver

Select Browse my comptuer

Select 'Let me pick'

Select 'Have disk'

In the dialog, type c:\sj664

Two unsigned HP Scanjet 5300c drivers will appear

Click on the top one

click next

it will tell you to reboot

7) reboot your PC

8) after rebooting, try it out!


I found this worked for me in PrecisionScan 3.03 TWAIN mode only. The HP-WIA part is broken in this scenario and does not appear in the WIA manager GUI at all.

XP X64 Instructions

This is modified from a vista post, so most of the credit goes to that post that helped me make it work on xp x64.

Go to this link and download the official Hp 5300C WinXP 32-bit drivers to use with x64, the one posted on hp's site does not work.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj664en.exe

2) Run the .EXE and then cancel the install, don't install the software, haven't been able to get it to work.

This extracts the files to the directory c:\sj664en

3) Edit the hp53sti.inf file

4. Find this line:
[Manufacturer]
%Mfg%=Models
5. Change it to all of the following, all 6 lines:

[Manufacturer]
%Mfg%=Models,NT.5.1, NTamd64
[Models.NTamd64]
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Usb.NT,USB\VID_03f0&PID_0701
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\VID_04E6PID_800000402ED4
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\Hewlett-PackardHewle76A2

Don't change anything else.
Save.

6. delete HP53STI.CAT

Go to device manager and update driver or add new hardware
select the directory these files are in
and it will install or select the scanner from the list.

now install a second party scanner program and it will work the one that comes with the installer for hp doesn't work.
so any second part scanner program should now work with the drive that this installs.

Can I make my HP5300C Scanjet operate on windows 7


Use windows7 Prof or Ultimate
Install XP-mode
Working in XP-mode
Install the sj664 HP software.
Though the USB device HP5300C can be found, the HP scanning software will not yet find the scanner. Because the scanner is shared between W7 and XP.
On the XP-mode taskbar disconnect the USB device HP5300C.
Then start HP Precisionscan and the scanner will function as before.
It is clear why HP does not advise this simple procedure.
Just because they did not present any clue triggered me to try it once more.

HP5300C Cannot Find Scanner message from PrecisionScan SW


Does it show up in your hardware profiles? What does it say on details when you right click the scanner? When you installed the driver, was it before your plugged in the USB? You may have to uninstall and reinstall it again, this time use the one from HP's website with any patch if applicable.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=sj664en&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=58381&os=228&lang=en
If you have successfully used it in the past, follow the install prompts and restart.. instead of using the products software, use Windows included scanning program which is much better than the proprietary one designed by HP. As long as you have the proper driver installed your system will know how to apply it.

Is Software available for Vista?


According to HP, no. See link.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=&cc=us&product=59968&lang=&#

However, you might be able to install the Windows XP drivers and run the driver in 'Compatibility Mode' for XP SP2.

First, un-install any drivers you have installed for the scanner (if you have tried any).

Second, disconnect the scanner from your computer.

Download the driver and the software update from the provided link (above).

Once you have downloaded the driver (ps804en.exe) right click it, select the Properties/Compatibility Tab and check 'Use Compatibility Mode' and set it for Windows XP SP2, and also check 'Run as Administrator'
Then click ok.

Now run ps804en.exe and do not connect your scanner until the installation is finished (unless it specifically asks you to connect the scanner).

Now right click the updated software (ps803mu.exe),select the Properties/Compatibility Tab and check 'Use CompatibilityMode' and set it for Windows XP SP2, and also check 'Run asAdministrator'
Then click ok.

Now run ps803mu.exe


With any luck this might work.

Hp5300c scanner-can't use HP software on new PC (XP Pro SP3)


Are you using the software from HP? It sucks. If the HP software is not working correctly, then Use the one provided my your operating system works great. Go your Control Panel, Printer and other Hardwares and click Scanners, make a shortcut to your task or start menu and Scan Away. For Faxes, etc. import in outlook or other email client, etc.

My scanner is hpscanjet 3200c & my pc consederit umax astra 1220p


HP OEMed the ScanJet 3200C from UMAX. It's a Astra 1220P UMAX does not support this scanner anymore also HP does not but if you look around you will find file sj648en.exe from HP. This might work on your system, it's for upto Win XP.  I have been trying to get a USB to parallel to work with this scanner, so far so bad many many hours.
