    I followed the same way and installed the driver on my Vista laptop and I can see it there in Control Panel. But I don't have Windows fax and scan application in All Programs and I don't see the scanner anywhere. It like I know it there but just can't use it. So weird. Anybody knows why?? Pls help.

Here is how I got my Visioneer 4400 USB to work on Vista RTM
1) Go to Visioneer web page to get the driver for my device.
2) Downloaded the driver executable
3) On your local machine right click on the 42bit.exe and select properties
4) Select compatibility tab
5) Select the run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
6) Privilege Level select the box "Run as Administrator"
7) Select OK or Apply.
8) Run the 42bit.exe and install the driver
I saw a pop up on the screen about some missing twain.dll error. I just dismissed it.
9) Plug in scanner and driver should load correctly.
10) Go to Start -> All programs-> Windows fax and scan application and test it out.

I have downloaded the disc for visioneer 4400 usb scanner. The software is there but Vista says there is no scanner hardware? It had been working on my old desktop but now I am trying to install it on my...

make sure that when you installed the software, that the scanner wasn't plugged into the laptops USB port. That is a known issue with USB devices. If they are plugged in during the install, there's a good chance that they may not work. Always wait for the software to prompt you to plug the device in

Where do i get downloable vista softwaare for a visioneer 4400 sc

It looks like the manufacturer does not have Vista support for this model, any how, here is the link from their website. You still should be able to use WinXP drivers. When Vista belly aches tell it to use the driver anyway, Vista will discard what it doesn't need and load it just the same. I hope this helps.

It seems that your scanner is not supported in Vista.

You are going to get a new one or downgrade to XP.

Visioneer 4400 usb scanner

here is my solution --uninstal the drivers form device manager unplug the power plug on back of scanner --go to visioneer website and get the xp driver for the 4400 scanner--save instead of running the download ---right click the downloaded installer and click compatable --make to run in xp mode and click OK--install the drivers as prompted when installed restart if prompted then plug the power back into the scanner----instal drivers as prompted --unfortunately --vista wont put the icon in my computer like xp does--the solution is to open program WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY click file at top then import from scanner etc --the familiar page will come up with your scanner to preview or scan as you did before vista----this is the way i use it on vista home basic and i dont have any problems--hopefully you wont either
