    Tried your suggestion on Vista. Can't make it work.

    Just install the 8100 driver as is. Then do NOT use Paperport or any
    other software that came with the 8100. Instead, just scan documents
    from within Adobe Acrobat and/or photos from within Photoshop. It
    works, because Adobe stuff DOES work in Vista. In fact I'm scanning
    stuff with my old 8100 into my new Vista machine right now as we
    speak--both documents and photos, and it's working great. The output
    is pdf files and jpeg photos. Perfect.

After downloading the visioneer 9420 driver file (found on the visioneer site, but before installing it, remove your old 8100 driver, then install the 9420 driver by running the .exe file you downloaded from visioneer. Then, use Device Manager, go to -update device drivers and in the listing you should see the 8100 listed. Double click on it, click on -update, go to -browse my computer for driver software, then go to -let me pick from a list, then you should see the 8100 scanner appear, click on it, click on next, and then it will install the 9420 driver. My 8100 is working great on a vista system. Don't get rid of that scanner! It works!

SOURCE: visioneer 8100 and Vista

Are you talking about the $100 program? I don't see that as a fix. Or what download are you talking about?

Do not know how to hook up


I recommend using the USB cable. (Just like hooking up your printer)

Make sure that you download and install the software listed below
USB click here for the software
Visioneer doesn't allow you to download the software to utilize the scanner on their site. So hopefully you still have what came with the scanner. If not windows 7/vista should allow for very low level functionality.

There is no updated driver available."

Help is here,
You have compatibility problems with visioneer and Vista, I helped a few people last week with the same problem.
I recommended them too www.cnet.com for the latest paperport download and got my Fixya button pressed.
Please remember to rate my efforts,

8100 Visioner conflicts with Vista


Verified to work with Vista Home Premium x64 (should work for x32 as well):


1. Make sure your 8100 is unplugged.


2. Go to Visioneer's website and download drivers for the OneTouch 9420 scanner:

http://support.visioneer.com/products/home/9420/downloads_1.asp


3. Install the drivers. Nothing will work... yet, don't worry.


4. Now plug in your 8100. You'll get a message saying that Vista wants to find drivers. Select "Ask Me Later" or just cancel.


5. Next, open up Control Panel and then Device Manager. Find your 8100 in there (probably listed as "Unknown Device") and then right click on it and say "Update Driver Software". Now click "Browse My Computer For Driver Software" then "Let Me Pick From A List Of Device Drivers On My Computer".

6. Scroll down to "IMAGING DEVICES" then find Visioneer, then you should see the "Visioneer 9420" driver. Select it. You'll get a warning from Vista, but continue anyways. That's it... everything should work.

Scanner doesn't work with Windows Vista


Unfortunately this scanner is at end of life and I do not think you will find any drivers for Vista.

"download"?? You don't download, you install. Have you considered that the scanner might not be compatible with Vista? Here's the Visioneer site: http://support.visioneer.com/products/home/EOL/8100/downloads.asp
