Sounds like the same problem I'm having Allan. Hopefully this thread is alive enough for someone to be able to help.

Hi people,

I find it rather amusing that 5 years on I am still getting notifications for this thread

I haven't used this scanner for a long time and I'm not entirely sure where it went. I vaguely remember giving it my mum which could be a problem as things her her possession have a habit of disappearing from existence

If I can figure out where it is I will try to install it again to see whether I encounter any of the problems some of you are having.

Regards,

ScoÜtfu

Hi
Thank you for your information. I have Canon LiDe 35 Scanner. First stage of your way has been worked and my computer communicate with my scanner. but when I wanted to scan I've received "Unable to select TWAIN source" error, then I tried the version 4.5; but it didn't work.. what should i do now?
I love my scanner and it's a good one.

Doesnt work for me

If I extract the SetupDG.exe file and then point the canonscan scanner detected in device manager to use it, it just perpetually says that it either cant find the driver or the location doesnt contain a driver for the device.

I've just tried extracting both files and driver is clearly there in the root of SetupDG called "CNQL60.INF". Follow the instructions exactly to force it to install.

I never had that problem, but other people have so I recommend looking through the thread for the fix.

Don't get me wrong - I wasn't saying the driver file wasn't there. I was saying that if you try to point windows to using it, it refuses and says the required driver is not in that location

Win 8.1
 
 

Hi There,

I just registered to say thank you for the original poster scoutfu for the great tip that brought my Lide 35 scanner back to life! Beside this I want to extend it with additional tricks, because I see it still does not work out of the box for many others (just like me). One year ago I installed it on Win7 (64 bit) with smaller issues, now in Win 8.1 with major issues - but both can be solved.

The basics are the same, download the driver for Lide 60 from the official Canon website; Win7 64 bit driver will work for both Win7 and Win8.1 (don't know about Win10).

driver named lide60vst6411111a_64en.exe

For me the Canon toolbox and Winrar were not needed, the image software I use (FastStone - give it a try, it's free and great!) can deal with it, if the driver is correctly installed. Instead of Winrar I used 7zip's context menu item in Total Commander.

Unzip the downloaded driver (2 steps) as per the original post. The result is 3 directories, plus an .inf file along with a readme.

Plug in the scanner to an usb port. Go to the Device Manager part of Windows, select your scanner (probably it will appear with a yellow sign), refresh the driver by pointing to the extracted .inf file. This is exactly as per the original post. If successful, happiness and sunshine.

If not: in both Win7 & Win8.1 I found that during pointing to the .inf file at driver refreshing stage, Windows told me that no appropriate driver was found (just like previous posters). This is because the hardware ID of my scanner was not exactly the same as stated in the .inf file. You can check your hardware ID in the Device Manager, where you would refresh your driver, on the next tab probably called Details (I have Hungarian Windows), by selecting Harddware ID or similar. It looks like VID_04a9&PID_221C.

The .inf file have to contain the same info in order Windows to match it during install. So edit the .inf file with a text editor (not Word), look for the hardware ID in an early section, adjust it to your exact hardware ID (it appears in two consecutive lines). Save the .inf file, try again the driver refreshing part in your Device Manager. This adjustment was enough for me in Win7 (I changed VID_04a9&PID_221C to VID_04a9&PID_2213).

In Win8.1 this step above was necessary but not enough: it began installing, but then told me that some component was missing, the driver package is broken. After one hour I almost gave it up, but the following link gave me an idea:

During the driver refreshing procedure instead of pointing to the .inf file directly, select the Available drivers on the Computer (or similar) option: from the list select Scanners, then Canon Inc, then Lide 60. It will warn you about compatibility issues - just go ahead. Some seconds later the scanner awakened. Very probably the first, unsuccessful attempt was needed for the Lide 60 to appear on the list.

God bless You Canon for this great support of old devices!

How to solve the missing TWAIN driver issue

I followed the steps here to get my LiDE 35 recognized by my 64 bit Win 7 Pro machine.

That got it to see the scanner and have it make its wakeup sounds, but I was still getting errors saying I was missing a TWAIN driver.

One program got a bit more specific, saying that a particular file was missing from my installation: RMSLANTC.DLL

I did a web search for that file and found another problem-solving site like this, which advised:

(1) use Device Manager to look at the list of drivers installed with the scanner, which shows the path to each file (it was indeed on my hard drive), and

(2) add that folder to the system path.

It gives screen shots showing how to look inside the driver list (where that file is shown, with the complete path) and how to put that path into the system path:
Canon scanner error ”Can’t find rmslantc.dll | aaron-kelley.net
I followed those instructions and all of my programs were able to use my LiDE 35 under TWAIN.

I had to improvise a bit because the way to get to these places was not exactly as described in that post.

The starting point for both steps is to open Control Panel.

To get to the driver list, you open Devices and Printers, right-click on CanoScan, choose Properties and then on the Hardware tab you click the button for Properties. Then go to the Driver tab, where you'll find the list of drivers in a scrollable window. Copy the complete path to the file into Notebook or something like it.

To add the path to the folder that contains that file (and several others), you go back to the Control Panel and click on the System icon. On the left, Advanced System Settings is on the left. Click that. On the Advanced tab, click the Environment Variables button. The panel that comes up will have two windows, the lower one being System variables. Click the Edit button under that, and scroll down to the Path variable. At the end of what's already there, add a semicolon followed by the path to the folder that contains the file complained about. Since there are other files in that folder that might be needed, don't specify the missing file, just the folder.

OK your way out.

You can confirm that you've successfully added that folder to the path by opening a command window by typing cmd into the run box on the Start button, and then typing Path into the window that opens, which should respond by printing the system path to the screen

That solved the problem for me.
