Deskjet F4280 - can't scan to PDF

When I open the File Type drop-down list in the Scan to file Save Options screen, PDF does not appear as a file type.  I have Adobe Extended Pro installed on my computer.  Solution?

This can possibly solve your problem:

 

0. you should have the CD that came along with the printer. the solution that is listed below is working for windows xp operating system. 

1. Browse the CD -> Go to the Setup folder. -> Go to the DocProc folder. -> Double-click Docproc.msi to install.  you will not see any progress etc.,
2. Browse the CD -> Go to the Setup folder. -> Go to Qfolder . -> Double-click Qfolder.msi to install.  same as above.

3. Go back to your HP solution centre and under scan settings option you shhould get to see the PDF options (and a few others as well).

 

cheers

This also works for the Deskjet F4180 so it may work for the F4100 and F4200 series.
