    I have the same scanner, the scanjet 3570c and recently went to Leopard...


    Installed the drivers which are just available for Tiger... and nothing!

    Where is DPE?


    I guessed and picked the Acrobat 8 folder. 





    Maybe I should have looked for it inhere before, but didn't :( 


    Now when I scan to a .pdf file, Adope Acrobat reader starts....




    Any solution to change this and pick the correct folder instead.


    Other than an complete reinstall?


    I'm running Mac OS X Leopard, with HP Photosmart C6280

    I have a 5280 with the same request "where is DPE?" I'm running Leopard and I can't find anything referring to DPE, I don't even know what DPE stands for!  I can eventually save to PDF via Preview, not an ideal workround as I want to save direct to Word.

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.

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

Using the browser and navigating to the DPE worked for me. cheers

Canon mf 4018


Hello - Canon does not provide a Mac driver that supports scanning, BUT if you have:

An Intel Mac

and
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.

I need to know how to change the settings on our HP Scanjet 7650 so that I can scan documents in at 300 dpi.


This setting change happens in the HP scanner control software, which needs to be installed on each computer.

HP Scanjet 4470c compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.1


You will not find drivers for this old scanner. Sorry but this scanner is not compatible with Tiger, Leopard, or Snow Leopard, and HP offers no drivers other than for OSx 8.0 & 9.0 which are 10 years old. Time to purchase a new scanner.
