The drivers for your Canon CanoScan 4200F Flatbed Scanner available are for Windows 7 64bit, Windows Vista 64bit, Windows ME and Windows 98. Is your Windows Vista a 64bit version? You might want to upgrade your Windows Vista from 32bit to 64bit. Always remember, the softwares and drivers are limited to manufacturer's releases.
I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!

I don't know about Windows 7, but I'm using my Astra 4600 on Windows Vista.
Umax said on its website that the Astra series of scanners are not supported for Windows Vista/7. I suppose this is to get us to buy new scanners...
I searched all around the internet for my driver, but couldn't get one. Finally I tried one more time using the CD that came with my scanner. Of course it doesn't work if you run Setup.exe from the CD --- it will just tell you that the OS is not supported. So I went to Device Manager and deleted the scanner under the "unknown USB device" section, and unplugged the scanner.
When I replugged the scanner, I let Vista install the driver automatically. Of course it couldn't, as Microsoft doesn't support it either. Then the install wizard asked me to put in the CD that came with the scanner. And that did the job! Vista was able to ignore the fact that the driver wasn't written specifically for Vista, and the scanner is working!
