I recently upgraded to Windows 7. I went to install this software again but says that it is not compatable with the drivers. How to install this?


Windows 7 has a "Program Compatibility Wizard".
Launch this Wizard, and tell Windows that you want to install a Windows XP application.
Point to the CD-ROM containing the software, and install it.

Microtek scanmaker 3800 windows 7 compatible


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

What drivers do I need to make Family tree maker Compatible with Windows 7


Start the Windows "Program Compatibility Wizard".
Tell it that you want to install a Windows XP application from CD-ROM.
Windows 7 will create a "wrapper" around the software, to make it think that it is running under Windows XP.

How to Use Windows Application Compatibility Mode Published: October 25, 2001

This article describes how to use Windows Application Compatibility mode. This mode provides an environment for running programs that closely reflects the behavior of earlier Windows operating systems.
Using The Windows Application Compatibility Mode

When you use Windows Application Compatibility mode, many of the most common issues that prohibit earlier versions of programs from working correctly are resolved. If you run a program and it does not function as expected, it is recommended that you run the program in one of the compatibility environments.

To run programs in Windows Application Compatibility mode in Windows XP

  1. Right-click the icon of the program that you want to fix.

  2. Click Properties.

  3. Click Compatibility tab.

  4. Click Run this program in compatibility mode and select one of the following options:

    • Windows 95

    • Windows 98 / Windows Me

    • Windows NT 4

      bb456979.image1(en-us,technet.10).jpg

  5. Under Display settings, check the mode that you think is necessary for the program to work correctly:

    • Run in 256 colors.

    • Run in 640 X 480 screen resolution.

    • Disable visual themes.

      bb456979.image2(en-us,technet.10).jpg

  6. Click Apply.

  7. Click Ok.

  8. Double-click the program icon.

    Note The Compatibility tab is only available for programs installed on your hard drive. Although you can run the Program Compatibility Wizard on programs or setup files on a CD-ROM or floppy disk, your changes will not remain in effect after you close the program. For more information about an option on the Compatibility tab, right-click the option and then click What's This.

My scanner is not working. Can't open HP director on my laptop. I tried to reinstall CD that came with it, but " more recent version installed" Printer and copier work fine.


Here are some diagnostics.
1. Go to control Panel and then to scanners & camera.
2. look for your scanner there.
3. if you find your scanner there try to scan from the wizard and you will be able to scan you docs.

To Reinstall the Hp Director....
1. first uninstall the HP director software using the removal utility located in your cd...

The uninstaller on the Internet is newer and works better than the one on the CD-ROM. Use this method only if the Internet version is not available. Follow the steps below to use the CD-ROM version only if you cannot get the regular uninstall to work correctly and cannot access the Internet:
  1. Leave the USB cable disconnected from the all-in-one.
  2. Insert the all-in-one CD-ROM into the computer. Cancel or close any installation windows that appear.
  3. Right-click the Start button, and then click Explore . This will open Windows Explorer.
  4. In the pane on the left, locate the CD-ROM drive letter that contains the all-in-one CD-ROM.
  5. There are two different versions of the software for some of these models. Use the file path that pertains to your version of the all-in-one software.
    • Early versions of the HP Officejet 6100 and PSC 2100 and 2200 series: Double-click the file hposcr01.exe , located in the Drivers\Uninst\language (ENU for English, ESN for Spanish, FRA for French, or PTB for Portuguese) folder of the CD-ROM.
    • The newer software version: Double-click the file Cleanall.bat , which is located in the Util\CCC\Cleanup folder of the CD-ROM.
    ONCE THE SOFTWARE IS COMPLETELY REMOVED.RESTART THE PC AND TRY TO INSTALL THE HP DIRECTOR SOFTWARE FROM THE CD.
Let me know for any further help....

Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible with Windows Vista. Is there a solution for this problem, or do I need to buy a different printer?


My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Fast Forward:
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.

It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.

Cannon scanner D1250U2F and Hp photosmart printer 8250


This is a compatibility issue between the Copy function of Toolbox and the specific HP printer driver. The only work-around would be to scan your image and save it, then print it from another application. One other possibility would be to get Toolbox version 2.2.x from the N650U scanner download page. This version will be limited in functionality, but COPY button should function as expected.
