    Since purchasing a new Dell computer that runs Vista, my Canon 4200F scanner no longer works. I contacted Canon and Dell about the problem, but their remedies have not helped fix the problem.

    I have downloaded evertything required from MS and Canon websites but it refuses to load. When installing I get a "severe" message stating that I require windows 98 or 2000 professional operating system or later.

Use the latest Vista driver, which can be found here:
(english version)

UNPLUG THE SCANNER BEFORE INSTALLING
clean out the old installed drivers
Install the driver
plug the scanner in when asked to do so.

I tried to use my Canon 4200f with windows vista 32bit and get the usual error.


Hello,
This scanner does work with Vista, as well as Windows 7. I have the exact same one. Goto Canon's website and download the latest driver for Vista. Here is the link: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_4200f#DriversAndSoftware
Download and install the driver and the CanoScan Toolbox software.
Regards, Chris

Have 64-bits new laptop and I find a driver update for my Canoscan 4200F, but no toolbox. Can not use it without the Toolbox. Canon says it is not available...


Yes, you can use it without the toolbox. Both windows xp and vista have utilities for retrieving images from a scanner.

Canoscan 4200f Problem with Vista 32 bit


I got mine working after experiencing the same problem.

I had mine hooked up to a USB hub, after I hooked it directly to the USB ports in the back of my computer, everything just worked fine.

Weird that it worked on the USB hub on XP and not vista though.

Canon 4200f - Mac OS-X compatability


This solution does not work. On MAc there is no way to use this scanner. Canon sucks!!! There was no info about supported os on the box. It is just unfair to sell products without providing drivers for users.
