The 8100 scanner is not supported for Vista. You'll need to buy a new scanner that supports Vista OS.

"download"?? You don't download, you install. Have you considered that the scanner might not be compatible with Vista? Here's the Visioneer site:

Have the drivers been updated for Visioneer Onetouch 8920 scanner

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.

The below link is where I took the followign from:
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.

Not working on vista

Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not released a driver for that scanner to work with Vista. That scanner will only work with Windows XP / 2000 / Me / 98SE. The following link shows the list of scanners that Visioneer is making Vista drivers for:

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:

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 wont work with windows vista

Hi, Likely, the issue you may be having is a driver problem. First step I would do is check with visioneer to see if your scanner model is compatible with your operating system, your scanner may not work under the latest operating system.
