    Microtek website on 8-23-08 shows no driver for vista to microtek 4900.

    I sent them an e-mail asking for help. When I get an answer, I will post it here.

    Hi, I got an answer from Microtek and they said there would never be a driver for Vista for this scanner. What a bummer.

I discovered a site that claims to have a Vista compatible driver for this product -

http://www.xpvistasite.com/scanmaker_4900_13501.htm

Has anyone tried this? I am running 32 bit Vista which may be a different issue than some but I wanted to see if anyone had stumbled across this solution and found that it worked for them using any Vista...

Thx
Joann

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

Where can I find Driver for my Canon ( CanoScan 3000 / 3000F) for Windows 7 ??


Canon has a driver for Vista 32-bit here: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=235&modelid=8741#DownloadDetailAct . This might work in Win7 32-bit (possibly you will need the compatibility mode - right click on the driver and choose properties and the Compatibility tab.).

However, Canon has no 64-bit Vista support and no Win7 drivers and no plans to update the drivers for Win7. You can try a generic scanner driver from the OS - chose a TWAIN driver.

I wish that I could be more help.

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

I hope this helps.

(Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

Where do I get a Windows 7 driver for the Iriscan Express 2?


The IrisScan will work with Win7 32-bit. This from both the Microsoft Compatibility Center and the manufacturer's web site. In that case, just plug in your scanner and the correct driver should load (go to Windows Update on your computer to finish the installation, if needed). However, if you need a 64-bit driver, you are currently out of luck. They only have a 64-bit XP driver (no support for Vista or Win7 in the 64-bit version.)

I hope this helps.

I search for a driver vista or win7 for magigcolor


If the manufacturer of the copier does not make a driver for vista or win 7 64 bit, then you can't use it.

I ran into the same problem a few years back when I upgraded to XP pro 64. I resolved the problem by utilizing Microsoft dual-boot feature. When I need to print or copy, I rebooted to my XP 32 bit system to do the work.

Eventually I purchased new equipment that was compatible with 64 bit systems

Windows vista 64 bit driver


Hi mtrump1,

Thanks for your posting in FixYa.

The driver are available on the Canon Website, use this link to get it:

http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0000441.asp

or

For Vista 64 Bit you can try:
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SCANNER-Digital-CAMERA-WEBCAM/CANON/Canon-CanoScan-D1230U-611c.shtml


But i think both should be compatible to run in any 32 or 64 bit environment.

Regards

When you upgrade to Vista 64 bit, you also need to update and upgrade all drivers to the 64 bit version. Please update the drivers for your Audigy 4 sound devices and your remote should be back in action.

Software problem


its because windows vista runs under 64 bit computing which has compatibility problems, u'll have to get the 64 bit cd from the retailer u bought the mobile from or atleast mention your phone manufacturer and model so i can search for its driver that accepts installation on 64 bit computers.
