Free scanner software for Vista


Nov 30, 2009
I have a canon canoscan lide50. I try loading the software that came with it and I get an error message that Scangear is only for xp or 2000 or above. Well, this new Dell is a real pain. I have spent too many hours getting all the bugs worked out. I downloaded the new driver from Canon but it doesn't recognize it and I can't find it in this new Vista after it downloads.

Can anyone tell me what I am missing? Dell won't help unless they charge me additional fees.
