Not entirely true, I have a Canoscan LiDE 35 and was able to use the 64bit driver for the LiDE 60 to make it work for me.Sadly there are no Win7 drivers for Canoscan scanners. I myself have a Canoscan N650U and I've been through hell and back searching for a Win7 driver and was unsuccessful. This is actually the only reason that I keep my laptop running on XP and that's where I use my scanner.

i use W7 ProfesionalSpecify what version of W7 you have and what bit-rate please.
If you use 32-bit you may be able to use the XP drivers.
If you have Professional or Ultimate then you may be able to install & use it in Virtual PC XP mode.
unfortunately my laptop just has 1GB RAMDo you have the XP installation package? You can right-click on it and choose Properties. Pick compatibility and set it to Run with XP (SP3) compatibility. Then see if it installs. If it appears to install, test it to be sure.
Do you have at least 2GB RAM, preferably 3GB+ ? Have you downloaded and installed Virtual PC - XP mode from Microsoft? If so then open a Virtual XP window and install your scanner there. You will have to scan in the Virtual environment but the files can then be saved to folders outside the virtual environment which can then be used by any program installed in W7.
thanks a lotTry the first option and hopefully the XP compatibility mode install works because you will have trouble using Virtual PC with so little memory.
yeah maybe the last option is i must request to buy a new scanner that can compatible to W7Once you run the exe you need to locate where it expanded the files and you will need to set compatibility mode on all executables there and then run the appropriate files.
As I said it MIGHT work. It was a long shot from the start. The truth is you are attempting to use hardware that is NOT supported since XP!
You could try contacting Canon support and see if they have an alternate driver that may give you functionality (essentially what Draceena mentioned).
In the end, I'm afraid you may need to update your scanner.
Not likely, her situation was using Canoscan LiDE 60 driver for a LiDE 35 in a 64-bit W7.can i use that driver too?
my scanner is CanoScan D646u ex n my laptop is W7 Profesional with 32 bit operating system....
