CanoScan LiDE 100, doesn't work on Win7 x64

LOL, seeing a pattern here :)

Why? It *DOES* work with a Canon MP520.

33% ain't a very good average ;)

Of course it's not a decent statistic, three people writing about their experience, without us knowing anything about the supposed malfunction...

My experience of using WinScan2pdf with a CanoScan LiDe 35 on Win 7 32-bit: scan proportions are obviously wrong, the width to height ratio being noticeably greater than it should be.

Still does nothing with my MX700.

Shame, Ubuntu has a barebones app like this as part of its default install and I really like it. Was hoping something similar would come along for Win64 because the Canon apps that are bundled with it are bloated crap.

WinScan2PDF does not work for me. I'm using Win 7 64-bit with Epson Perfection V30. When i start WinScan2PDF, I can see it as a process in Task Manager, however, the program does not show any windows for me to use it.

Winscan2PDF 1.45 doesn't work under my windows 2000 pro service pack 4 update 1. Reading all comments I can see that this updating must be checked and fixed.

Seeing there are issues with this I stick to my well-established scanning procedure: Irfan batch scan - pdftk to combine the single page pdf scans Irfan produces. I need Irfan and pdftk anyway for many purposes, so don't need a new single-purpose program with issues, and Irfan and pdftk are portable. pdftk is a commandline program, and composing the necessary commandline (something like pdftk cat output or pdftk cat output is most easy with Free Commander portable, and having pdftk in the %path%.

The bulletin software deleted part of my example commandlines, so ask me if you want it.

Worked great with my old HP AIO. The "twain" option used HP's own software to do the scan, while the other option used WinScan2PDF's own tools, which included color, grayscale, black and white, as well as page size. Very useful program.

Good program. Could be enahnced by ability to save the JPGs it generates in composing the PDF file too.

Another issue is that is saves the .jpg files in the temp folder even after exiting the program. I'd say this is a noteworthy issue being as you could be scanning personal documents, bank statements etc.

Good program though.

Thanks, allclownsareevil. This is a real no no! Good program if you use it at home, but not if you use it to scan sensitive documents on a "public" computer. Please, add a warning to the entry - the jpg files remain even after many restarts.

@allclownsareevil and Kea: Note added.

Good catch; it's stuff like this that makes TPFC so great. :D

How about making network scanners visible? Lots of AIO network printers around.


opsimathic 2014-01-26 13:11

Can someone tell me where the .jpg images are left behind? I want to delete them but am unable to find them. Thanks.
