I am using (trying to use!) HP Solution Centre with my HP1400 multifunction printer (Windows 10 PC). When I try to start this I get a white box with an "f" symbol on it and it doesn't progress further. This is because Adobe have shut down Flash Player. I know Solution Centre is old, and I suppose the answer will be that "this software is no longer supported - go buy a new printer..." Is there any other way around this problem??
HPSE is a subset an older Full Feature Software suite.
HPSE features are very similar to the HP Scan Software released after 2015.
Although HPSE appears to be a separate software, HPSE is dependent on the infrastructure provided by the Full Feature Software. The Full Feature Software for your printer should be installed before installing and using HPSE.
OPTIONAL: Add HP Scan Extended shortcut to Taskbar / Send to Desktop / Pin to Start
Right-ClickHPScan.exe> SelectSend to Desktop(Create a Shortcut)
Right-ClickHPScan.exe> SelectPin to Start
HPScanExtended features include (and are not limited to): Single, Multiple scans, Image and PDF scans, Email as PDF / JPEG, Source selection, Page Size choices includeAuto-Detect(extracts image / document boundary). Mightinclude OCR (Save as Editable Text).
If your Twain version is supported, work around the restriction (cannot open the GUI that runs the scan software).
Solution might require installing third party software.
