    I have the HP Scanjet 4200C and I can't get it to work with Vista. The CD says it only works with 98. I tried to find software on Windows Update, or my computer did, I even tried to copy the files from the CD to my hard disk, creating a new folder. I rebooted in safe mode, because your CD isn't recognized in safe mode. I accessed the setup.exe from my hard disk, clicked on setup and it gave me the same error message. It stated it only works windows 98. That's funny because it worked fine when I had Windows ME. What about compatibility mode? Sheesh! Can anyone help me with some advice OTHER than buying a new scanner? I know there are some experts out there somewhere!!! Thanks in advance.

I used the HP latest driver download named sj655en.exe from their website and after 29months of not working, it DID and DOES work now!
The HP Precision Scan LT interface has a little problem of "save as" naming your file since it does not show the file name but you can just add the file name to the folder name and then it'll save your scan.
All of my apps work fine using the import function to the HP Precision Scan LT application.
Since I know HP did NOT update their driver, I'm guessing it's Microsoft having changed something with Vista Home Premium.
Good luck with your re-try of getting the old HP4200C Scanjet working again on your Vista operting system.

    Update to Vista Servicepack1 and HP's sj655en.exe last update of the drivers for the HP4200C Scanjet and it should work.

My HP Scanjet 6300c Flatbed Scanner does not work


It is not likely that there will be driver support for Windows 7.

That scanner is not even on Microsoft's compatibility list for Windows 7 and is listed as unknown on the compatibility list for Windows Vista

There was no driver support for Windows Vista listed on HP support page as well so it is unlikely HP will develop and Windows 7 driver.

HP doesn't have a Vista driver for Scanjet 3400c. I'm afraid your scanjet isn't compatible with Vista.

Hp scanjet 5300c vista


I had the same problem. I tried various compatibility settings (without success). What fixed it for me was going to the Compatibility tab and checking the "Run this program as an administrator" box.

I did not find to drivers and controllers by my hp scanjet 5100c


Sorry to say, but the ScanJet 5100c is not a Vista compatible unit.
The same thing happened with some of the earlier HP units when XP came out.
This is not the only piece of equipment out there that is not supported in Vista, it is too old for them to write drivers for.

HP does offer a trade ups option for older equipment. You can read about it here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01123715&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=61840
