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

Genius and Vista


There are two common ways to software-connect scanners
to windows:

1) The TWAIN driver interface
2) The WIA (Windows image acquisition) driver interface

===========================================
WIA is a driver interface native to Windows:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Image_Acquisition

TWAIN is a driver interface specific to each scanner
===========================================

Most new scanners should support both driver interfaces !

TWAIN is preferable, if you can find it, because it is tightly
coupled to the scanner's hardware design, and therefore offers
more functionality, which is hardware specific.

WIA, on the other hand, is more generic.
It will work with many different scanners, but with reduced
functionality, especially in the tools and setting available within
the scanner control window that pops up every time you try to
scan a document from within an application.

If you cannot find TWAIN, you may have to settle for WIA.
(if it will run with your hardware)
=====

This biggest problem, of course, is VISTA itself, and it comes
in two flavors, depending on your computer CPU:
64-bit and 32 bit.

64-Bit Vista drivers are the hardest to find.
32-Bit Vista is a DOG, because the software is too bloated
to run on a 32 bit machine.

Fancy colors and GUI not withstanding, 100% of the added
"new functionality" within Vista is for the benefit of Microsoft
and the scumbags running Hollywood. Vista hi-jacks your
expensive hardware resources and slows down "YOUR"
machine at "YOUR" expense to promote Microsoft's
insestuous relationship with the Sony movie studios and
the RIAA.

I strongly recommend to all my clients to stick with XP for
now, and avoid Vista like the plague.

I do !

Software problem


Unfortunately Genius does not provide drivers for your scanner, and your scanner has not been built for xp.
According to Microsoft your scanner is not supposed to work on XP in any way.
On this website there is a driver promising that is working on xp, I do not know if it works , just give it a try.
You need to Sign Up Now first, then go back to website driver page, click aside browser and chose download viewing a series of ads. I cannot this driver works, as it is not a factory original driver.
Best solution in your case is getting a different scanner, as your Genius scanner has not been built to be used with Windows XP.
