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

Hi droussanov !
Hp doesn' t support your unit anymore since Windows XP and it's a shame . Here are 3 workaround solutions :
solution one:
You can get your unit working in WIA mode if you can follow this :
make sure your XP ( yes XP ) driver is correctly installed .
Download FreeKapture from
Launch Freekapture , clic on Scan , select WIA-Hewlett-Packard . Your scanner will run . If you choose HP PrecionScan Pro , program will hang .
Note : no slides or negatives scans possible in WIA mode but the rest works .
solution two :
If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from
solution three :
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from
Back up your data first.

Have a nice day ,
Best regards,
Fanaudi .

HP Scanjet 5100c and USB

Hi Richard,

Download the top listed driver from this HP support page:

I think the next one down, for parallel only, is the one you are probably trying to install. You have to uninstall that one first, before installing the new one.
Do it from the Control Panel, System, Device Manager. Uninstall the Driver, then 'Install Driver' and choose the 'Browse my computer for driver' type option, navigate to the folder you unzipped the new one to and select and install it. Then reboot.
It should work now.

Hope this helps
