Hello bandersnatch40 and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm guessing you're referring to Windows Image Acquisition. All versions of Windows (starting with ME) should support WIA. Does your current default printer have the necessary Windows 7 driver(s) installed? If yes, this Windows Development Center article may provide additional information.
