Hello Jim Try getting your software from www.cnet.com I pointed another FixYa user in the same direction this Morning and they pressed the Blue FixYa button after download PaperPort for their Brother Machine and well pleased.
I hope this helps you too!
Good Luck,

Ii;ve lost my cd-rom to set up my brother mfc-465cn inkjet printer,where can i download a copy


Brother has the software and drivers that came on the CD-ROM on their support site: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc465cn_all . Select your OS and the language in the menus. Download the full software from the first link (at least on the Win7 drivers list) to use all of the features of your printer. If you download just the drivers, the buttons on the multi-function printer will not trigger any action by the computer. If you need the manual, the link is: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/doc/manual_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc465cn_all . Again select your language.

However, any third party software that was on the disc will not be available. (The OEM copy of PaperPort SE with OCR was on the CD for Windows systems.) You'll need the original disc or to replace the software with the full version if you use it. (You would need OmniPage to replace PaperPort SE with OCR. PaperPort and PaperPort Pro do not include OCR capabilities.) There are other programs that do this as well.

I hope this helps.

I installed Control Center 3 for the 5440cn (Vista) from the brother download site. It installed OK but there is no OCR software showing. Apparently it didn't install paperport. How do i get paperport...


Paperport is a component of the MFL Pro Suite that comes on the CD, but I'm not sure where it is on the download site, if not a part of the Full Driver & Software package. ( See here. & here.) & pg 2-26 of the user's guide here.
If you have installed from the cd and are having issues, see here.
If you don't want to download the full package, I guess you have to call Brother support and find out which file includes it...or ask them to mail you the CD.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

OCR problems for Brother MFC-8660DN with Vista 64bit


You are correct in that paperport 9 will not work on Vista and paperport 11 is the alternative. I called about a similar model and the guy at Brother told me that paperport 11 is included on an updated cd from brothermall.com for some models. It was only about $3 so you might want to check for your model. Hope this helps.

Unable to enter cd into my new laptop with vista basic


If you are downloading the vista drivers, why are you loading the cd?

Just double click the driver download to install.

If you are wanting to install additional printer software that came on the driver cd, you can most likely download the software updates at the same place you downloaded the drivers.
