I have this old ass canon scanner that doesnt have windows 7 drivers, because canon sucks assholes. the only program that supports it with its built in driver is VueScan, but the free version puts watermarks on the scans. and other software cant access it with the installed driver from vuescan... is there any way else to use this goddamn scanner on win 7 64 bit?

ive tried serials from the net to register it to full version but none work... current version of vuescan is 9.5.28 does anyone have a uhm... "working" serial they can share? I hate to get rid of a working scanner because canon are fucking jews and dont support their older products. Shit I have a old ass HP printer that works on win 7 and a older ass HP scanner/printer combo that works on win 7 (this one has a bad CCFL in the scanner) so I cant use it

FUCK YOU CANON. pic related scanner I have
>>
try using Vista 64bit or even XP 64bit drivers

force a manual install using the device manager
>>
>>51523250

there are no vista 64 drivers just regular vista drivers... and all the googling ive done doesnt seem to have any work around that actually works
>>
>>51523267
k well you could at least give us the model number of the damn scanner
>>
>>51523028

Old scanners generally don't have Windows 7 drivers if they were released during the middling period of XP ownership, mostly because unlike printers, scanners retain their value and usefulness, meaning that breaking compatibility in newer versions of Windows will ensure that you buy their brand-new Windows 7-ready scanners
>>
holy shit i think i have this same one
is it only powered by USB?
why dont you just use your phone to scan? even the insurance companies let me do that
>>
>>51523547

looks like that is what im gonna have to do unless someone has a serial for Vuescan 9.5.28
>>
>>51523564

yes its USB powered and the point of me scanning it is to have the files on my computer, why would I scan with a fucking phone? I want a GOOD scan not a phone capture
>>
>>51523587

Vuescan doesn't work unless your scanner is installed with some sort of driver, and while you can force a 32-bit XP driver, there aren't any 64-bit XP drivers, so it still doesn't work

If anything, you can just download VMWare and install XP if you really need to scan, but don't feel like buying a new one
>>
>>51523679

VUESCAn supports over 2000 scanners, and it has a built in driver.. I can use the vuescan AP to scan with the scanner, but it puts a WATERMARK on the scanned image because its the free version. I explained this in my initial post

the scanner works with VUESCAN on WINDOWS 7 because it has the driver built it, but there is no standalone driver for windows 7 itself. GET IT?
>>
>>51523663

DUDE you are a lifesaver. one of these worked. thanks bro
>>
>>51523700

>>

i have a lide20 that only had 32bit drivers. couldn''t get it run install on win7 64bit (and now win10 64bit). so installed vmware workstation, installed win8.1 32bit os, 32bit drivers installed okay. now can do scans using old scanner.

Lel, you expect them to write drivers for every goddamn OS Microsoft comes up with? Dream on.

>is there any way else to use this goddamn scanner on win 7 64 bit?
Yes, pay for vuescan, support the developer who made it possible to still use that turd?

Alternatively, try it on Linux. Since Linux doesn't change kernel and stuff interfaces for everything every two versions, maybe the driver still works.

Or "scan" with your DSLR or MILC camera.
>>
>>51524877
and i tried virtualbox but the usb support for scanners is screwed up and never worked. thats why using vmware.
>>
>>51524877

I tried it with vmware running 32 bit XP, it never worked.. when I had windows XP installed on my last computer it worked fine. so apparently the VM support is not good either

anyways fuck this scanner im going to trash it, its useless to me now unless I build a machine and put XP on it just to use a scanner... which seems stupid
>>
>>51524916

thanks for the smartass replies... canon just sucks.. I have old HP hardware that was able to work fine on win 7 with no alterations. but canon... no go. this is why I would never buy anything canon ever again. EVER. fuck you canon niggers
>>
>>51526171
its not a problem with only canon stuff. the problem happens with any old hardware from companies that keep making newer devices and stop making drivers for the older os. it true of video cards, printers, drive controllers, etc. they want you to buy their latest stuff. so your frustration is just where they want you to be (trash and buy new).
>>
>I tried it with vmware running 32 bit XP, it never worked
don't know what caused it to fail. i got my old scanner to work with win8.1 in vmware 11 (including an old label printer). oh well.
