Today Adobe Flash Player quits service, thus HP Solution Center does not work any longer. The problem is similar to the one described in thread https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/forums/postpage/board-id/Software. Unfortunately, the solution proposed in that tread does not work in my case as the software package to my printer HP Photosmart 2610 does have latest version as of 2015 and obviously the Solution Center version included in that package requires Flash Player. So, I think a need another source for a current version of Solution Center.
@ShlomiL has recommended thatHP Scan Extendedapparently still works for scanning.
The Caveat: HPSE is dependent on the Full Feature Software (previously "HP Solution Center") - if you uninstall the solution center after uninstalling Flash, you might not be able to reinstall it (since the old Solution Center depends on Flash). ??
Assuming you still have your solution center (full feature software) installed...
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).
