Try this method for Vista, haven't had time try it on my new win7 notebook. But still works great on my other notebook running Vista and XP pro.
Goodluck!

Driver for windows7 x64


These instructions will make your scanner work with Windows 7:

1) Go to this link and download the official Hp 5300C WinXP 32-bit drivers

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj664en.exe

2) Run the .EXE

This extracts the files to the directory c:\sj664en

3) Edit the hp53sti.inf file

Find this line:
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\VID_04E6PID_800000402ED4

Insert this line above it:
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Usb.NT,USB\VID_03f0&PID_0701

The section should look like:
; Win2k Models
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Usb.NT,USB\VID_03f0&PID_0701
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\VID_04E6PID_800000402ED4
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\Hewlett-PackardHewle76A2

4) save the file and exit

5) delete HP53STI.CAT

6) Install the driver

Open Device Manager

Find the HP Scanjet device in teh device tree (yellow exclamation mark no doubt)

Right click it

Select Properties

Select Update Driver

Select Browse my comptuer

Select 'Let me pick'

Select 'Have disk'

In the dialog, type c:\sj664

Two unsigned HP Scanjet 5300c drivers will appear

Click on the top one

click next

it will tell you to reboot

7) reboot your PC

8) after rebooting, try it out!


I found this worked for me in PrecisionScan 3.03 TWAIN mode only. The HP-WIA part is broken in this scenario and does not appear in the WIA manager GUI at all.

XP X64 Instructions

This is modified from a vista post, so most of the credit goes to that post that helped me make it work on xp x64.

Go to this link and download the official Hp 5300C WinXP 32-bit drivers to use with x64, the one posted on hp's site does not work.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj664en.exe

2) Run the .EXE and then cancel the install, don't install the software, haven't been able to get it to work.

This extracts the files to the directory c:\sj664en

3) Edit the hp53sti.inf file

4. Find this line:
[Manufacturer]
%Mfg%=Models
5. Change it to all of the following, all 6 lines:

[Manufacturer]
%Mfg%=Models,NT.5.1, NTamd64
[Models.NTamd64]
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Usb.NT,USB\VID_03f0&PID_0701
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\VID_04E6PID_800000402ED4
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\Hewlett-PackardHewle76A2

Don't change anything else.
Save.

6. delete HP53STI.CAT

Go to device manager and update driver or add new hardware
select the directory these files are in
and it will install or select the scanner from the list.

now install a second party scanner program and it will work the one that comes with the installer for hp doesn't work.
so any second part scanner program should now work with the drive that this installs.

My hp scanner 5300c scanner has been problematic when installing on two different computers, causing both computers to need repair. Anybody else have a similar experience?


Download and install the latest driver for your scanner. The 5300c Scanjet did not ship with drivers for XP or Vista. A download is required for XP compatibility. Vista or Windows 7 should recognize the scanner without requiring additional software. If the software you are installing is not compatible it can cause issues with the computer. If you are installing from CD please look at the CD to see if it lists your version of Windows.

Hp scanjet 5300c vista


I had the same problem. I tried various compatibility settings (without success). What fixed it for me was going to the Compatibility tab and checking the "Run this program as an administrator" box.

ScanJet 5300c didn't work


Most likely the destination folder for the scanning is a shared folder with limited rights. As the administrator, reset the permissions for that folder or redirect the software to a common folder with read/write/creation etc... access.

Also, make sure you are using the HP provided drivers and not those from Microsoft.
