Hi I bought a Canon Canoscan FS4000US used online. No driver came with product. Canon website does not offer any downloads when viewing canon website with WIndows Vista 64 Bit. It does show available...


When I go to the Canon site, I get prompted to select my OS: http://usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_fs4000us#DriversAndSoftware . On other parts of the Canon support site, I need to click on a Change OS link to get that dropdown menu or swap to the Select OS in that dropdown menu and then refresh the page. Then I can select a new OS. (Note the site uses Javascripts that do not seem compatible with all browsers. I found it worked with Firefox 6.0.2 . The exact location is hidden until you agree to the Canon Terms of Use.)

However, this driver, fs4000usvst103ben.exe, is listed as a Vista 32-bit driver released in 2007. Since the 64-bit Windows requires signed drivers, Canon doesn't make 64-bit drivers for their older scanners. (This scanner was released with compatibility with Win98.) Thus you will probably get an error message about the unsigned driver when you try to install it.

If the driver refuses to install, you may be able to run the driver installer by using the compatibility mode. Download the file and save it to your hard drive. Right click on the exe file and choose Properties. In the Compatibility Tab, select Run this Program in the Compatibility Mode and choose XP. Click Apply and then OK. Right click again on the exe and choose Run as Administrator.

I hope this helps.

I have a UMAX Astra 4450 scanner, and I'm trying to use it with my new Windows 7 computer. I still have the installation disc, but when I installed (I tried from the UMAX site too) no drivers were...


Hi I had the same issue. I just downloaded the evaluation copy of Vuescan, which includes a Windows 7 driver that works with this Scanner (32-bit & 64-bit) When selecting the model of Scanner I chose "Umax Astra 5400", which worked fine with the 4450.
Hope that helps! Ian

I cannot install in window7


Unfortunately this is an older scanner and the company has no interest in maintaining the drivers. The support for this scanner is now provided by Benq and they have no drivers past XP. The available drivers are at: http://www.benq.co.uk/support/downloads/downloads.cfm/dtype/D/page/downloads/product/163 .

If you have Win7 32-bit, you can try the compatibility mode. To try this, download the driver and right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Then check if the program itself is running in the compatibility mode by right clicking again and choosing Properties. This may not work. (Since the 64-bit OS requires signed drivers, I don't think it will work for that OS.)

An option that will work is to use a second computer with a supported OS (older version) installed. This can be a physical second computer, a dual boot machine or a virtual computer in your Win7 box. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP driver from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.

I hope this helps.

How to install the epson stylus TX100 scanner to my computer?


What OS does your computer have? Go to the Epson support site and download the software for your OS: http://tech.epson.com.au/downloads/category.asp?sCategory=Multi_Functional&id=StylusTX100&EmailAdd=&CanEmail=&SelOS=Y&MetricIDReturned=4036965&sCategory1=Multi_Functional and use the drop down menu to choose your OS. (With Windows 7, I know that the drivers are included in the OS so you can skip this step.)

For best results use a direct connection, with a USB cable that is 6' long or shorter.

Install the full software if it is available for your OS. Then when prompted to do so, make sure the printer is on and connect the USB cable between the printer and the computer. If needed, restart the computer.

In the case of Win7 or any other OS with these drivers included, just set up the printer and plug in the data cable. However, if the drivers are not included in the OS, then the printer may work after plugging in the data cable but the scanner probably won't. In that case, uninstall the generic driver, unplug the data cable. Then reboot the computer and install the one from the Epson site.

See the Epson support site for using the printer's software package. Please note that the buttons on the front of the unit will not work for initiating actions on the computer unless the full software is installed. Thus for Windows 7, you will need to launch your scans from the computer. Paint, Windows Fax and Scan and Photo Gallery (in Live Essentials) all can acquire scans. Some of these programs are also available for and will acquire scans in XP and Vista. (Paint is in XP, Vista and Win7; Photo Gallery comes with Vista and is available for XP and Win7; Fax and Scan is in some versions of Vista.)

I hope this helps.

I have a hp officejet 6110 all-in-one. I have recently hooked it up to a new computer. The printer and the fax seem to work fine but the scanner does not. Whenever I try to scan an error box appears...


Hi, HP site said Vista doesn't support these scan buttons. Must scan using Paint. What a pain. MS should be ashamed of themselves.


you have to download and install from here(XP 32bit) :

h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&product=79477&lang=en this :HP Officejet and PSC Full Feature Software and Driver

and this: Critical update to resolve an issue with HP Director after installing a new revision of Internet Explorer

The HP OfficeJet 6110 is actually a series of All-in-One Printers. Take a look at the following site (actually the HP (UK) site) and download the driver from that page. Hopefully, this will sort things out for you.

Can not get the scanner to open, at all, no communication to the scanner. I have readiris pro 12, with an old HP OfficeJer G series scanner RP


DID YOU INSTALL THE SCANNER TWAIN DRIVERS, YOU NEED TO INSTALL IT TO SUPPORT YOUR SCANNER IRIS READIRIS PRO 10, AND WITH THE PROGRAMS INSTALL ALSO PROVIDING A CD OR DVD INSTALLER... ALSO READ THE MANUAL TO KNOW THAT YOUR SCANNER IS COMPATIBLE FIRST WITH YOUR OS or OPERATING SYSTEM, IT REQUIRES ON IT. AFTER THIS INSTRUCTION YOU MAY RUN YOU SCANNER PROPERLY... GOOD LUCK!
