Windows 7: Need to add 'Scanner Support' that was never installed

Need to add 'Scanner Support' that was never installed

Scanner Support was mistakenly removed from the customized install. I didn't realize it until I tried to install a driver package for a printer/scanner.
SFC or un-installing Fax & Scanner support then re-installing it doesn't work since there is nothing there to reinstall.

Can I install the Microsoft Fax & Scanner Support package (or whatever it's called) from the original extracted W7 w/sp1 ISO??
