As a general rule, Windows 7 will work Ok with Vista drivers. But as suggested by 's 4u 11', using a Virtual PC solution is a good one ... providing your computer/laptop has support for 'Hardware virtualization' which will then allow you to use the 'native' Windows 7 Virtual Machine XP mode .... Unfortunately, many computer processors (even some current INTEL or AMD duo cores) do not have this feature!!! You can download Microsoft VPC 2007 but it will not help as it does not support USB devices: it is a great Virtual PC environment ... but no USB device support in VM mode (ps your virtual hard disk VHD can reside on a USB external drive). BUT THERE IS A FREE ALTERNATIVE: SUN VIRTUALBOX (see. www.virtualbox.org)! I installed the latest version 3.1 and it provides excellent USB supports in both my Windows XP SP2 and W2003 virtual machines: ttested with USB Wifi, USB TV dongle, USB stick ... your scanner should have no issue: USB DTV High Definition mode is normally a pretty demanding application!

Hi, You could try and use it in an XP Virtual machine
Steps to take to check, if you can use Virtualization http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/support/configure-bios.aspx
Give info on all Cpus From Intel and AMD http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_virtualization

Virtual PC & Xpmode. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
When you have XPmode and Virtual PC set up add the XP drivers for the scanner to the XP virtual Machine then connect the usb cable to W7

You should now be able to use the scanner in the XP machine.



Please contact the scanner manufacturer and see if they can provide the driver for Windows 7. Also, if the driver is for older operating systems, you can install the device driver in the Compatibility Mode.

If the manufacturer cannot be contacted or if the scanner is not compatible with Windows 7, you can refer to artiste1's suggestion to install this scanner in Windows virtual PC as a workaround.

Ican't use my umax scanner astra 5600 since i start upgrade to OS windows7.. is there any alternative for my problem..


Sorry but the news aren't good. Indeed for your scanner (I suppose that the correct model is Astra 6700 and not Astra 5600) there isn't any driver available for Windows7. You have these options:
Work with WinXP up to release date of drivers for that scanner by Umax (an e-mail complaining about that is a good idea)
Use another windows7 compatible scanner

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards
