There may not be a program or "driver" you can see. It depends on how you searched your files. Be sure to check search hidden files when setting up the search. A driver may be mentioned in your Registry. Printers, especially Canons, leave software or references to software behind frequently.

When doing your search, use the Search Companion, not the newer Windows search. Under More Advanced options at the bottom, be sure to check Search hidden files and folders.

One thing I am a little confused about. CanonUSA has no driver updates on their website for the MF 5770. Where did you get this driver from? They only have firmware updates.

Canon instructions for driver install at website below:

Windows 7 will not recognize my v6upl scanner which worked in Windows XP. Problem seems to be that Device Manager sees it as an Unknown Device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers.


Unfortunately, Microtek doesn't support the V6UPL for any Windows OS beyond XP. The drivers are available here: http://support.microtek.com/downloads/bycategory.phtml?slct_tbl=1&slct_mdl=2 .

What version of Windows 7 are you running? Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the version name ends with x64, you have the 64-bit version; otherwise you have the 32-bit version.

If you have the 32-bit version, try using the driver from the above site with the compatibility mode. Right click on the .exe file and choose Properties. Then select the compatibility tab. Set the program to always run in the compatibility mode for XP. Then right click again and choose Run as administrator. (You may need to disconnect the data cable and uninstall the Unknown device before trying to install the XP driver).

This will probably not work for Win7 x64. There are workarounds that you can use. You need to connect the scanner to a computer running an older version of Windows. This can be a physical second computer, a dual boot computer or a computer running a virtual version of the older OS. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, or upgrade to one of those versions, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode (in order) from Microsoft. Then install the XP scanner driver in the XP mode program as if that is the only computer running. The only issue is that you can't share files or your printer between the virtual and real computer at the same time. You will be prompted to uninstall the printer if you try to install it on both machines. You can put files on external media to share them. Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare. However, you need a licensed version of the older Windows OS to use any of the other alternatives.

I hope this helps.

Canoscan n640 not work in windows 7


Canon stopped supporting this scanner after XP. The available software and drivers are here: http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/scanners/Others/N640P_ex.aspx?type=download&page=1 .

Depending on the version of Win7 on your computer, you can try one of the following workarounds. To check your version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If it says x64, you have a 64-bit version of Windows 7. Otherwise, it is the 32-bit version.
1) If you have the 32-bit Win7, you can try the compatibility mode. Download the driver or full software from the Canon site and right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Then check if the program itself is running in the compatibility mode by right clicking again and choosing Properties. This may not work.

2) The option that will work for all versions of Win7 is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to them), you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the Canon site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them. Also a printer cannot be installed on both the real and virtual computers at the same time. You will be prompted to uninstall one set of drivers if you try.

I hope this helps.

(the above suggestions assume you do not want to replace the scanner which would be faster.)

Microsoft updates do not install


You have not said which OS you are using so; from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

When you try to install Windows updates from the Windows Update Web site, the Microsoft Update Web site, or by using Automatic Update, you receive a message that the update is not installed successfully. Additionally, the update is not displayed in the update history.

You may experience this issue in the following scenarios:

Scenario 1 You try to install updates after repair a Windows XP installation by using the Windows XP CD.
Scenario 2 You perform the following operations before you try to install Windows updates:

You perform a new installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2).
You visit the Windows Update Web site, or the Microsoft Update Web site.
Note When you visit the update Web site, the latest version of Windows Update software will be installed in your computer.
You install Windows XP Service Pack (SP3) without a restart.
You try to install Windows updates after the install of Windows XP SP3.

Then cause ;

This issue occurs because the Wups2.dll file that is included in the latest version of Windows Update is not installed correctly.

For scenario 1, the registry entries that correspond to the Wups2.dll file are missing after the repair install of Windows XP. The release version of Windows XP does not contain the Windows Update software.

For scenario 2, the registry entries that correspond to Windows Update are changed back to the Windows XP SP2 version if you did not restart the computer before you install Windows XP SP3. The registry entries for the Wups2.dll file are changed to pointing to the Wups.dll file that is included in the release version of Windows XP SP2.
To resolve this problem, use one of the following methods;

Method 1: Download and install the Windows Update Agent,
For an x86-based computer; http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.4.7600.226/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

For an x64-based computer http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.4.7600.226/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe

Method 2: Register the Wups2.dll file,

To have MS register the Wups2.dll file in Windows for you, go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144#FixItForMeAlways.

If you prefer to fix this problem yourself,

To register the Wups2.dll file in Windows, follow these steps:

1. Stop the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Open the Command Prompt window. To do this, click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
b. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
net stop wuauserv

2. Register the Wups2.dll file. To do this, follow these steps:

a. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll

Note For a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll

b. Click OK if you receive a verification message.

3. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, type the following command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
net start wuauserv

4. Exit the Command Prompt window. To do this, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

You don't actually need a driver to set it up. Just plug it into your network, then browse to its URL (likely 192.168.1.1, but could be 192.168.0.1, or 192.168.2.1). Then just follow the prompts to configure it. Hope that helps.

I have the same problem. You can't use Canon Toolbox 4.9x. It does not work. You will have to download and intall the x64 driver only from the Canon website for the MF5770.

Unpack the x64 driver and install it.

Go to the Start-menu and click on Units and Printers. Right-click with your mouse when hovering over the printer, then choose scan, fax or print.

We can only hope that Canon will solve the problem in the future, most likely not since MF5770 is an older Multifunction-machine.

This version of Windows does not support this version of Roxio DLA. This product, which was created by Roxio, Inc., has been blocked from running because it might keep your computer from starting correctly...


Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. To run your program on Windows XP, try the following:
  1. Run the Program Compatibility Wizard. As an alternative, you can set the compatibility properties manually.
  2. Update your program, drivers, or hardware.
These options are covered in detail below.
The Program Compatibility Wizard This wizard prompts you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows 95, set the compatibility mode to Windows 95 and try running your program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows you to try different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.
If compatibility problems prevent you from installing a program on Windows XP, run the Program Compatibility Wizard on the setup file for the program. The file might be called Setup.exe or something similar, and is probably located on the Installation disc for the program.
To run the Program Compatibility Wizard
  1. Start the Program Compatibility Wizard.
  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

Canon MF5550 printer driver for Windows Vista


I just found this solution TODAY! After trying for a whole year to fix this thing... It was right at my face the whole time!!!!

1) Uninstall your old Canon MF5550 driver.
2) Reboot your computer
3) Download the Canon MF5550 driver Windows XP version.
4) Open your Vista Control Panel, then click on PROGRAMS (not on Uninstall or something else...)
5) bellow "Programs & Features", click on "use an older program with this version of Windows". Follow the wizard.
6) Locate the program manually. (If you need to search the folder where you downloaded your Canon driver, just go to search file on C. It will probably download on your desktop or Downloads)
7) Open the MF5550 Folder where you downloaded the driver, and click on the setup.exe file.
8) Choose on the next screen Windows XP
9) If you need to change the display settings, go ahead. But I didn't change anything. I just clicked NEXT.
10) Fill in the box: RUN THIS PROGRAM AS AN ADMINISTRATOR and click NEXT.
11) Click Next again and let Windows Vista do its job.
12) If it worked... just click yes and finish. If it didn't, click NO and run it again.

I AM SO HAPPY THIS THING WORKED!!!

Let me know if this worked for you!!!! I know I've looked everywhere for this solution...

email me at music2harvest@msn.com

GOOD LUCK! GOD BLESS!
