You can try the Vista driver, http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=77362&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=15179&prodSeriesId=77360 . However, HP is not going to guarantee it will work. This driver is a basic scanner driver without the rest of the software that HP provided for the scanner. If that driver or the generic TWAIN or WIA Microsoft scanner driver works, you will be able to scan to any Win7 compatabile software. Windows Fax and Scan and Microsoft Paint are built-in options (and acquire scans in Paint: File, Scanner or Camera, in Fax and Scan: File, New, Scan).

I hope this helps.

I had the same problem and running now Windows 7 x64. Problem was solved by downloading a software name VUEscan (v.9.0) which recognize almost all older scanners and bring you a chance to work perfect with them.I am happy with my solution.
It really helps.

I had the same problem (and maybe more using Windows 7 x64). Vuescan solve all by recognizing old scanners and working very well. The software is available to work in both x32 & x64.Flasharg

I'm looking for a Windows 7 compatible driver for the HP Scanjet IICX. Is there any such thing? My scanner works just fine and I'd hate to throw it away simply because I've upgraded the OS.


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

I have a HP 5550 SCANNER.And i bought a hp laptop with windows 7. but the scanner doesnt support windows 7. what can i do??


The basic driver for Vista may work. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=77362&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=15179&prodSeriesId=77360 (select the appropriate version 32-bit or 64-bit)

Alternatively, try connecting the scanner to the computer and loading a generic WIA driver from the OS.

In either case, if they work, you will not be able to use the buttons on the scanner to launch scans. Instead use Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) or Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner) to acquire scans. (You can also acquire scans in Photo Gallery if you download and install that software from Microsoft. Alternatively, you can buy a third-party software for scanning and OCR.)

I hope this helps.

(I've gotten other older scanners to work with basic drivers; it's worth the shot even without the full-featured software.)

Scanjet 2200c under Windows 7


HP does not have a driver for this scanner with either Vista or Windows 7. One workaround is available in Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate. You can set up the XP mode and install the scanner within the virtual computer. Scanned files may need to be put on an external drive to transfer them between the two "computers".

I hope this helps.
