On the Microtek web site, I only see an XP driver. Your friend could try installing a generic TWAIN compliant scanner that is included in the Windows 7 OS or try to install the XP driver using the XP SP3 compatability mode (right click on the file, choose Properties and then the Compatability tab). Those drivers are at http://support.microtek.com/downloads/drv_specific.phtml?slct_os=8&prod=14&bymdlnme=1 .

A different method is available on Win7 Pro or Ultimate. Download and install the XP mode to create a virtual computer running Windows XP. Install the scanner to this "second" computer. Your friend will probably need to save the files to external media to transfer them between the two "computers".

I hope this helps.

Windows 7 won't read the microtek scanmaker 4900


In case you haven't noticed, there aren't any drivers for your scanner for Windows7 from Microtek. So you have to wait till Microtek anounce new drivers, or try the WinXP version with your own risk.

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

Thanks and regards

My s400 works with Vista but not Windows 7, I


It will work with win 7 but it is complicated.

Download driver from the Microtek website
extract the files to your drive
locate the setup.exe file where you extracted the files
after the driver is installed reboot the pc

Now for the fun part...

Once PC is fully rebooted plug in Scanner ScanMaker s400
Windows looks for drivers in “windows update” and the “preconfigured driver folder”
Windows cannot find a driver.
Close “Driver Software Installation” window
Open Device Manager
Device manager shows yellow bang next to “USB scanner” under “Other Devices”
Right click on usb scanner
click “update driver software”,
Click on “Browse my computer for driver software”
Click on “let me pick from list of device drivers on my computer”
Click on “Imaging Devices”
Click Next
Under Manufacture there is no Microtek
Click on “Have Disk”
Click on Browse
Locate ScanWizard 5 V6.63 folder
Locate Disk 1
Locate Vista
Locate X86
There is a list of INF files
Choose first inf file, “Mii_x86_004.inf”
Click Open
Click OK
Now under Manufacture two entries are listed, Microtek and Microtek Driver Team,
On the other side there is a list devices s400 is not listed
There is an entry for 4800 Scanner
Select it and click next
An “update Driver Warning” opens select yes
Window now shows successful driver update.
And the scanner is listed as 4800 scanner
Click close
Close device manager
Open Scan wizard program
Scanner works fine.
The scanner will not work nativly with windows scanning.
