Question about Visioneer OneTouch 8100 Flatbed Scanner
Verified to work with Vista Home Premium x64 (should work for x32 as well):
1. Make sure your 8100 is unplugged.
2. Go to Visioneer's website and download drivers for the OneTouch 9420 scanner:
3. Install the drivers. Nothing will work... yet, don't worry.
4. Now plug in your 8100. You'll get a message saying that Vista wants to find drivers. Select "Ask Me Later" or just cancel.
5. Next, open up Control Panel and then Device Manager. Find your 8100 in there (probably listed as "Unknown Device") and then right click on it and say "Update Driver Software". Now click "Browse My Computer For Driver Software" then "Let Me Pick From A List Of Device Drivers On My Computer".
6. Scroll down to "IMAGING DEVICES" then find Visioneer, then you should see the "Visioneer 9420" driver. Select it. You'll get a warning from Vista, but continue anyways. That's it... everything should work.

I just wanted to add that I've been trying to get my Visioneer 8100 One-Touch scanner (that I purchased well over 12yrs back) to work with new OS of Win10 64-bit. The above instructions for installing the 9420 driver worked for me. This was the 6th or 7th thing I'd tried and was gonna be the last. I was so frustrated after doing every poss thing in my power- to no avail. I tried this as a last resort and to my surprize- it worked. Thank u VERY, VERY kindly.

Install PaperPort as usual.
Open the Vista Program Compatability Wizard. Install the 8100 driver using the Wizard. I chose the XP Service Pack 2 emulation. Works just fine.
