Using your HP Scan software : Scanning Guide for Everyone!

 

Thanks very much for posting this!

I have two HP Laser AIOs an HP 476 and a 477

I have installed the "new" scanner interface for both printers and it works fine.

 

I stll have a copy of the "old" scanner interface installed as it was the default program when I bought the HP476.

Is there a way to uninstall this older scanner program?

It does not show up in the list of installed programs....

When I use third-party OCR software (ABBYY V14) it seems only to detect the "old" interface:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476\bin\HPScan.exe"

 

and NOT the  newer interface:   "C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP Scan Extended\bin\HPScan.exe"

 

ABBYY V14 seems to only "see" / pick up the older interface...

 

I think I will need to use the HP interface (not the ABBYY interface) in order to scan legal size documents from the sheet-feeder.

 

thanks,

jim

Hi @Hoser88 ,

Thanks for using the HP Support Community.

 

Was HP Scan extended able to detect your printers and scan legal size?

 

Would suggest to leave things as is if it's working 🙂

 

Thanks.

thanks GreenTurtle

 

I'm not sure quite what's happening under the covers, but OUTSIDE of ABBYY  I can scan legal paper from either the new or the old utility as stand-alone.

 

In ABBYY Version 14 inside the interface I select "legal" and then it pulls up the OLD HP interface

(In ABBYY options I said "use scanner's interface"  then I select legal again from the HP tool and it works OK.

Not a huge hassle so I'll just go with it as-is and not worry with it.

 

Thanks for your help!

jim
