The HP page referred to in solution #1 doesn't give a driver for Vista. HP doesn't support the 2100C anymore. Here's a trick that does work:

If you have the original disk that came with the scanner do not use the autorun or setup.exe in the root of the disk, but in stead run:


(or any other language if you like, take what matches your windows language)

    Tried this: still came up with the "this software needs Windows 98 or Windows ME". Unfortunately does not seem to work for my 64 bit Vista. Whatever happened to Microsoft's policy of making their new all-singing all dancing OS compatible with existing hardware?

An affordable flatbed scanner that works with Vista

Stores are stocking less and less scanners these days, this is due to All in one systems being so affordable. For the price of a decent scanner you can get a comparable AIO which will scan, photocopy and print as well!!! You will find most of these units (even the budget ones) are capable of giving as good a scan if not better than your 2100C, in my experience the HP range are very good followed by the Epsons. Canon is good but tend to be overpriced for the spec, personally I wouldn't touch a Lexmark but that is just my own bias.....

Cant get scanjet 2100C to work with Windows Vista

Unfortunately, HP doesn't support Vista for that scanner model.

However, some have reported success using windows 2000 drivers on Vista.

You can give the windows 2000 drivers a try here:

Be sure to unplug the scanner from the computer BEFORE installing the driver / software.

I had a similar problem when I upgraded to Vista. Try running setup.exe from within the software CD ( in the english folder I think) rather than using the autorun.
