Question about HP ScanJet 7650 Flatbed Scanner
After scanning a document to pdf the programs asks for a program with DPE? What is DPE? I'm on a Mac OS X Leopard.
This problem happened to me to (OfficeJet 6310xi). These steps solved my problem:
When the program has the error, there's a button so you can show it where DPE is. Click the button
Navigate to Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Hewlett-Packard/HP Scan Pro/DPE/
Click on DPE 11.6.app
Then I could scan to pdf. When I upgraded to Leopard, I reinstalled my HP software, even though HP says it isn't totally compatible with leopard.

I could not find DPE on my Mac, and you may not be able to either. My solution, when trying to create a PDF, was to go to the HP Scan Jet application, and navigate to the "Scan to" pull down menu at the bottom of the screen. Select "PDF to Preview". This dumps the image into Preview. From there, simply name it and save it.

HP now has new Mac software that fixes this problem in Leopard. No more DPE questions, no error messages. Go to http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=377691&taskId=135&prodTypeId=15179&prodSeriesId=377689&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go%20»

Same problem w/ HP7280 and Leopard Mac 10.5.1. Browsed to DPE (used spotlight) Problem resolved.

One more note... I navigated to the folder on my Mac, but my scanner came with DPE 9.0 which won't even open on Leopard. The scanner came with Iris 11 for Windows, but not Mac. Nice.
So my lengthy workaround... I installed Iris 11 under Windows XP running under VMWare Fusion on my MacBook Pro and it works great from there.

I had the same problem with an error of DPE 11.6. manducasexta was right. Though do not try to point to this file as a routing solution, instead double click on it, register the OCR software. and as soon as you register the software, it will work for you. DPE 11.6 must be registered before proceeding or you will keep getting an error. Dave

Tips for a great answer:
An Intel Mac
OS 10.5 (Leopard) or later (including snow leopard, lion, mountain lion and even mavericks)
there IS a fix: Just download the free Vuescan software for Mac, then use it to scan with the MF4018.
Go to: http://www.hamrick.com
Download Vuescan for Mac OS X
Install it, and start the application. It will recognize any scanners attached.
NOTE: If Vuescan asks you to identify your printer, you will not see the MF4018 listed. Choose the MF4010 instead - the 4010 and the 4018 use the same drivers.
