Not many older devices are supported under Windows Vista. I have done a Google search and found no drivers for your unit that are adapted ti Vista.

Have you contacted the manufacturer to see if they intend to supply Vista Drivers for this unit (the answer may well be NO).

If all else fails, you will have to get a Vista compliant scanner to replace your unit.

Note: This lack of support for Programs and Hardware under Vista is the reason that I have twice now gone back to Windows XP (and will not reinstall again until SP2 or SP3 come out and even then I will only CONSIDER reinstalling it). I think I will wait for the next version of Windows (should be called Windows Gravox). Past history has shown that not all Windows operating systems are "good" or of a benefit to the end user (does the stench of Windows ME still stain your memory? For those that don't remember Windows ME - that's the one that came out between Windows 98 and Windows XP!)

Sorry I could not come up with a Driver for you.

Got a HR8 Genius scanner working with win7-64 until upgraded my system to win8 - 64bit and stop working. Tried the compatibility mode and nothing... any solutions?


How to Install Scanner ColorPage HR8 Geniuns 64-bit Windows 8.1
First:
Getting Driver Genius for Windows Vista
http://download.geniusnet.com/2007/Scanner/HR8_V.zip
Microsoft reports no drivers from the manufacturer, to try luck with the driver of windows Vista, but does not explain how to make it work.
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-hardware/drivers-for-genius-colorpage-hr8-scanner/3026b412-09db-48de-8665-6d1dda37b11d
After you download the driver, you have to run the "setup.exe" in support "Windows Vista" mode.
But before you do read the following explanation because you have to do something else before I install it, otherwise it does not work.
As I said, after trying I did not recognize the driver, I tried to take the driver manually
but windows saying that the driver was not digitally signed and you can't install if driver is not signed.
I Search the web such as disable that control and found a step in the url:
http://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-so-that-you-can-install-unsigned-drivers/
After following the steps I could install the scanner driver and HR8 works correctly in Windows 8.1
LAST:
Now you can run the setup.exe in compatibility mode with Windows Vista, at the end makes restart the computer,
Now you got the scanner Genius ColorPage HR8 running on Windows 8.1
