For the Visioneer OneTouch 5600 Flatbed Scanner in windows 7 go to the visioneer web site at http://support.visioneer.com/products/5600/downloads.asp and download the file 5600.303110.EN.exe. Then right click on the file name and select Trouble shoot compatibility. Do not connect the scanner until told to. Run the program using the recommend settings. That installs the drivers. It does not install the paperport support software but does install the monitor in the task bar. That is enough to use the scanner and save or print the scans.
Below is a link to the list of the only scanners that VISIONEER has written a Vista driver for(and not likly to write any more for former scaners.) Your model in not on that list. Unless, for some reason , they decide to write a Vista driver,you will never bve ableo to use that scanner with the Vista OS. No one else will ever write one either.
Please don't rate me badly for telling the whole truth even thought you may not like it.
The below link is where I took the followign from:http://support.visioneer.com/UK/products/tools/OS/
As Microsoft continues to release new versions of it's Windows Operating System, the requirements for peripherals and software change. Visioneer scanners are designed to leverage the tools and features included with the operating systems that are current when products are released. When feasible, we develop scanner drivers for new versions of Windows. On the day Windows XP was released, Visioneer had more scanners qualified to wear the Designed for Windows XP logo than any other scanner maker. In spite of our best efforts, major changes in the underlying architecture of Windows XP make it impossible to write new drivers for many of our older model scanners.
Visioneer posts the last release of drivers on each Product's Homepage and provides online support for older products. Scanners designed to work with older versions of Windows may not function properly after upgrading your computer's operating system.
We offer an industry leading upgrade program, giving a 25% discount from our online scanner store for customers that return their old unit to ensure proper disposal as part of our environmental recycling program. For details visit Visioneer's Trade Up Offer.
I have a GOOD, WORKING driver for the Visioneer 5300 USB scanner, for Windows XP and Vista.
I include very detailed install instructions that I have personally wrote and tested. Send me an e-mail to [email protected]. Subject Line - 5300 USB driver
The Visioneer 7600 USB scanner is not supported on Windows XP, although it may function properly on most systems. If you choose to install the software on Windows XP, we recommend creating a system checkpoint by using the Windows XP System Restore feature. During installation Microsoft displays a warning dialog because the driver you are installing has not been submitted to Microsoft for testing. Click the Continue button to complete the installation. If you experience any problems with your scanner or operating
system, remove the software and restore to the point created before you installed the driver.
