Hello,

Try this 1

According to your Scanner manufacturer, it doesn't need drivers when you

For more information, click on the below hyperlink "Scanner".

Just plug your scanner and check if its able to get detected in the device

manager.

Download the drivers for Windows XP or Windows 7 from the manufacture's

website and install the drivers in compatibility mode.

Click on the above given hyperlink.

Make sure that "Drivers & Software" is selected --> Select

Operating System as "Window" from the

drop-down menu. Select OS Version as "Windows

Now install it in "Compatibility Mode".

Right-click on the setup file --> Properties --> Click on "Compatibility" tab -->
