Your are correct. The 98 driver will not work with Xp. I am sorry that your printer model is not listed on the Umax site. Is it old? Even if it were listed their is a chance that they have never written a (software) driver for that model since it originally was used with Win 98. It they have not written a driver then it is extremely unlikly anyone else did for your model. Sorry.

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.

Recently upgraded my pc to windows 7 from windows xp professional. now my scanner does not work, not compatible with windows 7.. are there any drivers available that are compatible with windows 7


BenQ apparently never updated drivers for this hardware to work un a Windows 7 environment. I do not have this scanner myself, but I did come accross a site that indicated many were having luck with a driver found there. I was unable to test it as I lack the hardware. I do not know it it will work for you or not, but I offer the info for you to investigate to see if you can get it to work in Windows 7. The site is: http://www.bioticaindia.com/benq-s2w-4300u.html

Lastly, if your version of Windows 7 is "Pro" or "Ultimate", it supports "Windows Virtual PC." Windows Virtual PC is a fully *free*, fully functional licensed copy of Windows XP Pro direct from Microsoft that "runs" in Windows 7. You can install applications and hardware in the Vitual PC just as if it were another computer. Follow the Virtual PC link above to learn more about it. You may be able to breathe new life into your BenQ scanner running it in the Virtual PC, if the driver mentioned in the first paragraph doesn't work for you.

Good luck! Please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" if it was helpful - thanks!

Canoscan Lide 30 compatibility with Windows 7.


There are no official drivers for CanoScan Lide 30 for Windows XP, so your problem is obvious. I suggest you sending an e-mail at Canon including details about your scanner (date purchased, serial number in text form or scanned) asking them to develop driver set as this model is very trade and at shops since 2006 or 2007.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

I have the same scanner and the drivers that came with the scanner don't work. Windows XP uses a generic twain driver that works, also most pictures viewer like XnView or Picasa uses the same. I'm using one called Wia-flatScanner_21 1.0(32-32).
