Yes, it is because the INF file was written for windows 95 or later. That "or later" driver was probably released before Vista. You can get a Vista driver here: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=116&modelid=13368

Will this scanner work with Windows Vista

Yes ... provided it is configured with the necessary Vista driver(s).

This particular model appears to have been first sold before the release of Windows Vista, therefore yours may, or may not, have the Vista drivers installed.

If NOT:
  1. Go to the Canon website.
  2. Select "Windows Vista" in the drop-down menu.
  3. Download the latest Vista compatible driver package(s) and/or documentation.
  4. Install following installation instructions.
