Can't install ScanSoft on Vista

I upgraded to VIsta 32bit, and my MFC-7420 inludes a disk with Vista drivers, which work fine. But I cannot install the disk with MFLPro and ScanSoft because when I try to run the installer, it says there are no supported drivers (which is true - the drivers are on the other CD). So how can I install ScanSoft without simultaneous installing any drivers?

SOURCE: install my mfc-7420.

Just go to the following webpage, and you can download everything you need for your printer:

http://www.brother-usa.com/downloads/Default.aspx?ProductGroupID=5&ProductID=MFC7420

This includes: Drivers, Firmware, and utilities. There is a link there just for Windows Vista if you happen to have that as your O/S. The other link covers all other versions of windows.

SOURCE: Refill toner Brother MFC 7420

open front cover, press OPTION button, on the LCD will appear a message "NEW DRUM?" ....DO NOT RESPOND....just type on the keyboard "*00" and there will appear a message "Accepted" and use it in your pleasure.

PS. in any case i blocked with paper labels the viewing windows from transparent plastic on the toner itself....

Mr. Brother, do not try to be smarter than your customer

I installed Windows 7 on a laptop (HP DV2000) now the it give problems to come on, I tried over and over finaly i got Windows Vista 32bit on it, but it still giving the same problem, what can i do or how...


Windows 7 is designed for latest hardware and the Laptop you are using is quite an old. We will face compatibility issues.

I suggest you to run a Compatibility Advisor to know which Windows 7 version is compatible for your Notebook.

Advisor Tool
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/upgrade-advisor.aspx

Install the suggested version using an upgrade Disk. If you use retail version, you will face the driver compatibility issues.

All windows 7 driver will not available. But, you can use Vista driver for Windows 7 if it is installed using an upgrade disk

No printer driver support for omniform 5.0 on windows vista. it works on my xp


OmniForm 5.0 is not Vista compatible. The printer drivers are different in XP and Vista so the patch that let printer drivers run under XP won't help. As far as I can tell, Nuance does not have any upgrades for this software for Vista or Win7.

A very inconvenient workaround exists: install XP on your computer for a dual-boot computer.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Describe your scansoft paperport deluxe 9 windows Vista printer drivers Problem Can not install why


Hi there and welcome here

Take a look here :
http://reviews.cnet.com/document-management/scansoft-paperport-deluxe-v/1707-3522_7-30787056.html

It does not describe windows Vista, so I think it is not compatible with windows Vista, so there is 2 thing you can do :

1. you can see if it runs in compatibility mode, and you do it in this way : Highlight the program icon on the desktop or in the start folder, choose properties, select the last tab, choose compatibility mode with windows xp and try to open the program

2. If it is not working maybe you can upgrade to a newer version, for that you have to go to the product homepage . Normally you find a link in the program where you can go to the product homepage.

Hope this can help
Have a nice Christmas over there

No web cam found


It may not be detected by windows or the device manager till the correct driver is installed and can initialize the device (Power it Up)

Try Searching Acers website for a Vista version of your driver , and be sure to make sure you pick the correct bit (ie; 32bit drivers will only work with 32bit vista, and 64 with 64)
