Below is a link to the list  of the only scanners that VISIONEER has written a Vista driver for(and not likly to write any more for former scaners.)  Your model in not on that list. Unless, for some reason , they decide to write a Vista driver,you will never bve ableo to use that scanner with the Vista  OS. No one else will ever write one either.     Please don't rate me badly for telling the whole truth even thought you may not like it.  http://support.visioneer.com/products/tools/os/vista.asp

The below link is where I took the followign from:
http://support.visioneer.com/UK/products/tools/OS/
As Microsoft continues to release new versions of it's Windows Operating System, the requirements for peripherals and software change. Visioneer scanners are designed to leverage the tools and features included with the operating systems that are current when products are released. When feasible, we develop scanner drivers for new versions of Windows. On the day Windows XP was released, Visioneer had more scanners qualified to wear the Designed for Windows XP logo than any other scanner maker. In spite of our best efforts, major changes in the underlying architecture of Windows XP make it impossible to write new drivers for many of our older model scanners.   Visioneer posts the last release of drivers on each Product's Homepage and provides online support for older products. Scanners designed to work with older versions of Windows may not function properly after upgrading your computer's operating system.   We offer an industry leading upgrade program, giving a 25% discount from our online scanner store for customers that return their old unit to ensure proper disposal as part of our environmental recycling program.

SOURCE: 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:

SOURCE: Is there a way to install Visioneer 4400 on Windows 7?

Im not sure that will work with the driver for xp ...try again with the vista driver ..cause this are the ones most closed to windows 7...and get started from the device manager ...so in this way the scaner will be first seen and than add the driver by updating it ...

SOURCE: Visioneer OneTouch 8920 won't connect

If it is a usb device and it doesn't sees it ..just change the port until it sees it ...
Another thing to do is to go to control panel and run the add new hardware wizard...You can run the driver first to be sure it is in the system and after that run the wizard ..., but in a normal way it should see the usb unknown device and try to install it auto...
if it is not a usb device ..just connect it ...go to device manager by right click on the My computer icon ...properties./hardware /device manager ....here you should see the printer in yellow color and with a ask sign meaning that its missing the driver ...If you do not see it ...just right click on computer in D manager ///and choose scan for hardware changes..it should bring it to sight ..
after that right click ..and update driver ...if the driver s not an installer just browse from the update driver wizard to the location of the folder with the driver and it will take it ...
let me know if it is anything else...BY the way ..be sure the printer it is powered and on...before trying to install it ...otherwise it will not see it ..
Have a nice day and please do not forget to rate if it was helpful...

Did you calibrate the scanner on the Windows 7 machine? When you calibrate, a file is saved on the host computer - if you do not calibrate, everything is black.

In case you dont have a calibration sheet, I just uploaded one to FixYa - it will take a few days for moderators to review it, but then you can print it out on both sides of a single sheet of paper (so that the arrows are pointing at the same end of the paper, but on both sides of it) and use that to calibrate your scanner - make sure that you have 'edge to edge' printing turned on, as there cannot be any white space on the sides of the black space.

I am in need of drivers that will allow me to use my Visioneer 8920 USB scanner in a Windows 7 OS. Any help is really appreciated!


I'm afraid that won't happen. Visioneer's drivers are only good through XP Service Pack 1; they won't even support XP Service Pack 2 due to the increase in security measures. There is no Windows 7 driver (or Vista, for that matter) and they don't plan on developing/releasing one as the product is discontinued.

Sorry...but hope that was helpful.

Need a driver for Visioneer OneTouch 8700 Flatbed Scanner


The drivers for supported OS versions are available here: http://support.visioneer.com/products/8700/downloads.asp . The supported OS versions are: Windows XP SP 1 / 2000 Professional / Me / 98SE and the additional software that was bundled on the CD is not included.

If you have a different Microsoft OS, you can check the Microsoft compatibility center for either Vidat or Win7. A check of the Win7 compatibility Center http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx showed some Visioneer OneTouch scanners work with Win7. However, the 8700F is not in the list.

I hope this helps.

(Dual boot with XP or a virtual computer with an older valid OS version will work. The Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you use Virtual PC and XP mode to run an XP virtual computer for free.)

I need to know whether or not I can use a visioneer 4400 Scanner with a Mac OSX, and where to get the driver.


I have only found Windows drivers for this scanner. You might be able to use it with Parallels software or VMWare running a virtual Windows XP or lower on the Mac.

I hope this helps.
