Canon S520 printer driver


I'm new in this forum and like to ask, if someone have a solution for my driver problem.
I've got an old Canon S520 printer and i am not able to install any driver on my Windows 7 64bit.
I searched the inet for a solution, but can't find one.
And sorry, if my English isnt't that good.

Thanking you in advance.

So, i finally got the time to answer.

Thanks for your help but i already try to use the vista drivers and it doesn't work.
Perhaps i make something wrong. I execute the file and it says installation finished but the printer is still uninstalled.

I got my canoscan lide 35 to work by using drivers of lide 60 and install them by manually chosing the drivers in the windows list. Perhaps there is such a solution for the printer too.

Thanks, but as you can see above i've got Windows 7 64bit and therefore the compatibility mode is grayed out.

But i'm happy to announce that i solve the problem just a minute ago.
I tryed some drivers from the Microsoft Update Catalog.
To find it, search for "canon s520" and the last listed driver should be the right. To be sure, click on it and control if the architecture is AMD64.

For the lazy ones, the one that is working for me can you find below. ^^

Hope this helps some other too.

I have an older Canon imageclass d761 printer. There are no 'official' x64 bit drivers on the Canon page. Is there any way to use this printer with Win7x64? A generic printer driver, or another model that is close? My other printer, a MX850, works fine (Canon had x64bit driver)..
