Scanning documents from hp photosmart c4180, on hp tx1030 with vista 32 premium

Trying to scan documents (only documents not images) from HP Photosmart C4180 all in one, I can´t do it on my HP tx1030 notbook (with tablet pc) because (HP support said) there are a conflict between the Vista soft (in this case, Vista 32 Home Premium) and the Tablet pc soft, that neither HP or Microsoft are capable to solve. So, they sugest me to stop runnig the tablet pc soft, then scan documents and finally, ending this run again the tablet pc soft. That really works, but is strongly dificult for me do all the steps that are not simply. If you have any idea, I´ll hear you.

I am trying to scan documents and images into my computer and also email but apparently i can only choose from "scan and reprint" or "scan to memory card" options? Please help!!

If your HP Printer is connected to the computer it should be able to save the scanned images to your computer when you start the scanner using the scanner icon on your computer.
The the way is to save the images to your memory card and transfer them to your computer using a memory card reader, then you can email these images as a file attachment in your emails.

A continuing complaint for this software. Try lifting the lid sometimes that will reset the software. Also make sure you have the latest verison which is the black icon on your desktop. Could also try rebooting everything. Leave printer turned on and reboot pc.

HP Photosmart C4180 scanner

Unfortunately Vista has problems with many printers. (Or maybe I should say many printers have trouble with Vista.)

HP has a work around that allows you to scan without using the Scan button. Go to:

C4180 Scan Work Around

They give you 2 options to scan using programs on your system

Thanks for using Fixya.

If the All-In-One Software is Sucessfully installed, then you should have a icon or in Start all Programs you will see HP Solution Center.
Open solution center and try scanning from there either scan picture or scan document and follow the on screen instructions.
And thescanned image will be store in MY Documents there will be a folder as My Scan and under my Scan for each month there will be a floder you will find the scanned image there.

Good Luck
