Win 7 and scanning software for HP ScanJet 7400C

Hello.

I am about to migrate from Win XP to Win 7 Ultimate. I am running HP PrecisionScan Pro 3 on my XP - I know that the ScanJet 7400C I have is compatible with Windows 7, but I cant seem to locate any driver and software. Could you help, please...

Thanks,

Anders

The drivers of HP ScanJet 7400C are available through Windows Update. Please follow the steps available in the following document to install the Scanner:

I understand Win 7 will download the correct drivers for HP 7400 C ScanJet scanner - but what about the PrecisionScan Pro software itself?

If you are upgrading the Operating System from XP to Windows 7, you should not have any problems in using PrecisionScan Pro software. However, I suggest you run Windows 7 upgrade advisor to check the compatibility of this software with Windows 7:

Please be aware that there is no direct upgrade path from XP to WIndows 7.  You will need to do a fresh install of Windows 7 and then reinstall your applications.  You may be able to run PrecisionScan Pro 3 in compatibiliity mode.  If PSP3 does not run initially you could right click on the program and select "Troubleshoot compatibility". 

 

If your computer supports virtualization then Windows 7 XP Mode may be a solution.  It allows running XP applications in Windows 7 and my experience is that it works well.  (It does require a recent CPU with Hardware Assisted Virtualizaion.  There is a tool here to determine if your system supports HAV.)

Thanks.

I did run the Win 7 Upgrade Advisor om my XP, and the report informed me that HP Scanjet 7400C status was Check Windows Update and indicated a green checkmark. However, what surprises me a bit is thet the Win 7 Upgrade Report does not say anything about the software HP PrecisionScan Pro 3 ?

This should indicate, that PSP3 is compatible with Windows 7, right?

Re: Win 7 and scanning software for HP ScanJet 7400C

I am able to scan in using Windows 7 and HP Scanjet 7400C and selecting the scanned doc to be a .JPG but when i try to open the file with Adobe Reader, it says the file cannot be opened.  Any suggestions how I can scan in a document using HP 7400C and Windows & have it come out as a .JPG file that is "openable"?

One option is to scan directly into the Paint.net photo editing program available as a free download from Microsoft <http://www.dotpdn.com/downloads/pdn.html

 

I find it easy to use and a good all round product.
