Vistascan 3.1


I tried to resurrect my Astra 1220P scanner to work with my WinXP Home machine. I began by calling UMAX, they told me I needed XP drivers and suggested that I purchase the VistaScan 3.55 driver CD for $18.00. They also told me to get a Parallel to USB Adapter Cable, which I purchased from Radio Shack. When the CD arrived, I went to work installing the cable & loading the drivers to no avail. The scanner does not appear in the Device Manager list under image devices or other devices, In fact, it is not anywhere in the list.
Of course the scanner does not work. I called them back and asked for assistance, they told me they could not guarantee operation of the unit using a Parallel to USB Adapter Cable...and sorry, we cannot refund the cost of the driver CD. Isn't that special - I was so looking forward to scanning some slides and film because I had previously purchased a Transparency Adapter.
Now I begin my search for a new scanner that will work with transparencies.
Anyone have a suggestion?

Before we start, please make sure that you are logged in as the Administrator of the machine. If you have any Anti Virus software, or any other software that may interfere with the installation, then please close it out.

1. Insert the New "Vista Scan X" software CD, into the CD ROM drive.
If the installation does not start automatically, then please do the following:
  1. Go to Start
  2. Click on Run
  3. Type "D:\VInstall.exe", assuming that "D" is your CD ROM drive
  4. Now hit "Enter", or click "OK"
2. At this point the Computer will tell you to unplug your scanner if it is plugged in, so please do so and click "OK"

3. Now select your scanner model "4450", and click Install"

4. Now we are going to follow the Onscreen Instructions, so:
  1. Click "Next"
  2. Read the Agreement carefully before continuing, if you agree then click "Yes" to proceed with the install.
  3. We are going to do a Typical Install, so click on "Next"
  4. And now click on "Install"
  5. Once the Installation is done, you will have to restart the computer, so click on "Restart"

5.The computer should install the drivers for the device automatically, if it does not then go to step 14 and proceed with the install. If the computer does not prompt you, then go to the next step.

6. Now go to:
  1. Start
  2. Programs
  3. VistaScan
  4. And then click on the VistaScan program
If VistaScan comes up, then do a scan. If VistaScan does not open, then please go to next step.

7. Click on "Start"

8. Go to the "Control Panel"

9. Double click on "System"
(If System is not showing, then click on "Classic View" in the top left corner).

10. Go to "Hardware" and click on it

11. Now go to "Device Manager" and open it up.

12. In Device Manager, go to "Imaging Devices"

13. Right Click on the Scanner listed, and click on "Update Drivers"

14. Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)", and click "Next"

15. Select "Don't search, I will choose the drivers to install." and click "Next"

16. Now you should have two Astra 4450 USB scanners listed. One driver is digitally signed and the other is not. Please choose the one that is not digitally signed, which would be the second option and click "Next"

17. The computer will now give you a prompt that the software you are installing is has not passed Windows logo testing, so just click on "Continue Anyway"

18. Once the installation has finished, just click on "Finish".

19. Now go to:
  1. Start
  2. Programs
  3. VistaScan
  4. And then click on the VistaScan program
If VistaScan comes up, then do a scan. If VistaScan does not open, then please call support at 214-739-1915 for further assistance or you can also e-mail support at support@umaxcare.com

Driver for windows7


Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver 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 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

Canon 600lide scanner and Canon 350d eos xt digital camera


Isn't the "VistaScan" software designed for a Umax scanner?
It is probably proprietary software. If it is a Canon camera, it most likely came with something like ZoomBrowser.
