Gateway Laptop 32 bit. Opsys new with Vista upgrade to Windows 7
How to get the Canon IS-12 Scanner cartridge to function on Windows 7.
I am new here, please give me some latitude.
Earlier this evening I made a post to a thread and this is new info that I have to report but I can not find my original post.
Previously I reported that the MS techs could not get the IS-12 Scanner cartridge to function. Well, I stumbled over the (or perhaps one of many) solution a few minutes ago.
This is exactly what I did:
Left click Start, Left click All Programs, Left click folder IS Scan Plus, Right click program IS Scan Plus, left click Properties, left click Compatibility, change Compatibility Mode to: Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
For my then new job three years ago I bought a laptop, portable printer and the optional scanner cartridge. Discovered that the scanner would not work on my Vista machine. I tried Virtual PC but the laptop did not have Hardware Virtualization. I fummed everytime I had the need to scan a jobsite sketch or some other document. I had to copy it by hand, drive to a store or make several follow up calls to get a copy to my office, but only if the scanner worked !!!!!
Finally I can use my scanner with my laptop on the road. Oh wait a minute, I quit that job and now I sit at a desk surrounded by the bleeding edge (the boss says this often as he relates spending money to bleeding) of technology. Well, its good to now have the ability to use it, in case I need it.
