I feel after all the effort I have put in the scanner is not compatable with Windows Vista. I think my money would be better spent purchasing a new one.

Will this Visioneer 4400 scanner driver work on Windows 7?


Hello,
Currently there is no driver available for win 7.But one of my friends had the same issue and he
fixed it by asking windows to automatically find the driver from internet and it worked for him.So I suggest you try the same,this is what you need to do

1) First go to control panel,then open Program and Features.
2) Uninstall any driver for the Visioneer 4400 scanner that you have previously installed and reboot the computer,if there is no driver installed then skip this step.
3) Make sure your scanner is connected to the computer,now right click on "My Computer" and click "Manage"
4) Now choose "Device Manager" from the left panel and it should list all the devices on your computer on the right side.
5) Now select the option "Scan for Hardware changes" from "Action" menu on the same window,you can also do this by right clicking on any of the device name in the list (ex,drivers,keyboard) and choose "Scan for Hardware Changes"
6)A new category named "Imaging Devices" should appear on the device list now and when you expand it by clicking on the arrow, it should show your scanner as "42 Bit USB Scanner"
7)Now right click on "42 Bit USB Scanner" and select "Update Driver Software".
8) Now choose the first option,"Scan Automatically for updated driver Software" and Windows
should automatically find a working driver and install it.Now your scanner should work.

Let me know if it helped,good luck!

I have replaced my xp computer with one running Vista. Will the Visioneer 6600 scanner work with Vista?


The 48-bit color Visioneer OneTouch 6600 USB scanner delivers outstanding image quality by recognizing over 281 trillion colors at 600x1200 dpi optical resolution. The scanner has three convenient buttons that integrate with the ScanSoft PaperPort Deluxe software to make emailing, copying, and storing images and text effortless. The software bundle also includes ScanSoft TextBridge Pro OCR and MGI PhotoSuite III SE.

The scanner driver is certified by Microsoft for Windows XP, and also is compatible with Windows 98, Windows 2000 and Windows Millennium Edition.

It is not compatible with windows Vista.

Vista driver for visioneer 4400 USB scanner


Here is what worked for me. I have 32 bit Windows Vista. I do not think that this will work on a 64 bit Vista, as I don't think that a 32 bit driver will work on the 64 bit Vista.

Go to this URL:

http://support.visioneer.com/products/4400/downloads.asp

And download the 4400.303110.exe file to your computer.

Next: Click on "Start Search", and paste in
"mshta.exe res://acprgwiz.dll/compatmode.hta" without the quotes.
This will start the "Program Compatibility Wizard"

NOTE: The "Start Search" will appear when you click on the round Windows button at the lower left hand side of your Windows Vista desktop. It's right under "All Programs". Just paste that command in that box.

Then, just follow through.
When prompted for the program to run, select
"I want to locate the program manually" and point to the driver setup file you want to execute, which will be the file that you just downloaded.

Under the page that says to "Select a compatibility mode for the program"

Choose: 'Microsoft Windows XP (Service Pack 2)'

You don't have to select anything on the "Select display settings for the program" page.

On the next page, select "Run this program as an administrator".

You should be all set to go. I did see one complaint about a missing dll file, but it worked anyway.

Many thanks go the the people who really contributed to this fix:

They posted a lot of good information on this Microsoft forum:

Visioneer 4400 usb scanner


here is my solution --uninstal the drivers form device manager unplug the power plug on back of scanner --go to visioneer website and get the xp driver for the 4400 scanner--save instead of running the download ---right click the downloaded installer and click compatable --make to run in xp mode and click OK--install the drivers as prompted when installed restart if prompted then plug the power back into the scanner----instal drivers as prompted --unfortunately --vista wont put the icon in my computer like xp does--the solution is to open program WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY click file at top then import from scanner etc --the familiar page will come up with your scanner to preview or scan as you did before vista----this is the way i use it on vista home basic and i dont have any problems--hopefully you wont either

8100 Visioner conflicts with Vista


Verified to work with Vista Home Premium x64 (should work for x32 as well):


1. Make sure your 8100 is unplugged.


2. Go to Visioneer's website and download drivers for the OneTouch 9420 scanner:

http://support.visioneer.com/products/home/9420/downloads_1.asp


3. Install the drivers. Nothing will work... yet, don't worry.


4. Now plug in your 8100. You'll get a message saying that Vista wants to find drivers. Select "Ask Me Later" or just cancel.


5. Next, open up Control Panel and then Device Manager. Find your 8100 in there (probably listed as "Unknown Device") and then right click on it and say "Update Driver Software". Now click "Browse My Computer For Driver Software" then "Let Me Pick From A List Of Device Drivers On My Computer".

6. Scroll down to "IMAGING DEVICES" then find Visioneer, then you should see the "Visioneer 9420" driver. Select it. You'll get a warning from Vista, but continue anyways. That's it... everything should work.

Scanner doesn't work with Windows Vista


Unfortunately this scanner is at end of life and I do not think you will find any drivers for Vista.
