From the maker of Q-Dir, DektopOK and others:
Quote:
WinScan2PDF is a very small (~40k) and portable program that allows you to scan documents and save them on your computer as a PDF by using any installed scanner.

Not tested, but it claims to be portable.

This software still needs a scanner driver (I hope no one thought he can bring this app and the actual scanner to a new machine and start scanning :) )!

Sure.
We have some similar applications in the database. Unlike STP and Scan2PDF, WinScan2PDF works on Windows 7 (even onx64). In addition, it is smaller than the others.

BTW, when I scan with it, it launches an application named ScanGear, which is by Canon (I have a canon multifunction printer). I have never seen this one before because I used to scan images with Microsoft Paint. Has anyone got a Canon scanner too and can tell me whether and how I can start this application myself? I have browsed through every Canon folder I could find on my computer, but found no executable.

I got to test this today on some old hardware and it worked well. Has settings for flatbed, document feeder, color, black and white. Very simple interface. I do wish it would save settings between sessions, but glad I had this on my machine when I needed something scanned.
