    When trying to install my brother 440 printer, the wizard says there is a problem with the paperport. How do I get around this and install my printer?

  • Neutral Jan 18, 2009

    The driver links wortk great, but the installation setup fails to continue after asking for the printer to be connected (via USB in my case). After that the installation wizard's next/previous buttons just gray out & nothing more happens. Upon USB connecting the printer, Vista tries to auto-install like it did before I downloaded the drivers you link to, but fails.

    And why was this rated inappropriate? I supplied a working link that will allow you to install the software and make your printer work. This should be rated as fixya.

I can't get scansoft paperport11 to open. I don't think I ever registered it when I installed the MFL Pro suite so could this be the problem - if so how do I now register it

If you installed MFL ProSuite you probaly have an Express version of Paperport installed.
Uninstall the express version and then install PP11.

How di I reinstall PaperPort Print Driver? PaperPort 11, Windows 7

Instructions extracted from

"{Ok, here is how I got the whole package from my Brother MFC and PaperPort 11 with the printer utility.
First if you have tried to install the suite or paperport and are having issues uninstalling through windows download this wonderful program that removes everything called Revo Uninstaller at and choose the freeware version.
Now go to the Brother website and search for the Windows 7 MFLPRO Suite and you should download a zip file that contains the suite for multiple MFC’s. Unzip it and set it aside. This is only the Brother Suite for the Brother MFC and the Control Center 3.

TO find the Windows 7 version of MFL PRO go here

PaperPort 11 will have to be installed from the actual CD that came with your printer. Inside the CD with Windows Explorer File System locate the file Inst32.exe that should be inside the CD under the install folder then MFC-465CN (my model) then usa folder. Remember the location.
Now set everything aside and let’s start. Open up control panel, click on programs and features then choose Run programs made for previous versions of Windows. You have just opened up program commutability, now click next and wait now choose not listed and press next. Browse and fine the Inst32.exe file that I mentioned earlier. Now click next and then choose Try Recommended Settings, Next your setting should say applied and compatible with Windows XP SP2, then you will see a tab on the next screen that says Start the program. Click on it and allow it to start installing this will start the suite and the first thing that installs is PaprPort, be patient let it continue to run and after it will install the PaoperPort print driver, then after it will start into the MFL PRO Suite. This is where my installation halted because the suite is a 32Bit version it would not continue. I looked and PaperPort program and printer where installed. Close it up and pres next.

Finally now you can install the MFL PRO for Windows 7. Open up the folder you downloaded from Brother and look for your model and you will see the setup.exe application, click on it and start installing MFL PRO along with Control Center 3. That’s it, and your setup should be complete.}"

Hope the thread from
will help.
