What a shame that Canon expects us to dump our lide scanners because Canon refuses to provide the driver/software needed for newer OS like win7-64. Is Canon waiting for a class action law suit? Maybe we should swarm canon and the web with complaints about such arrogance.
it worked!! thank you! upgrade to windows 10 (x64) from 7(x64) stopped scanner from working. i have old scanner canoscan lide 25 (i think). my only driver choice was lide 60 so picked it and now scanner working fine again with windows 10. thanks again for great tutorial!!
Thank you so much for this. I had almost given up on using my Lide 35 in windows 10 x64 when I saw this. I downloaded the Lide 60 drivers and unpacked them, then selected the Lide 60 driver as per the instructions. Now that I have the Toolbox version 4.9 installed instead of 4.5 it seems to work fine and sees the Lide 35 as Lide 60.
Yes, this is the normally way to install the printer drivers for your system. And for printer, actually, there are some printers cannot compatible with the new system windows 10. Also, this aricle will shows you the canon printer support system details.
If you have a canon lide 50 this is another way of making it work on windows 10 64bit boot in advanced mode that requires no signatures for drivers (look elsewhere on how to do this) [DONT PLUGIN THE SCANNER]
I am using win10 pro version with LiDE50 and it works. My steps are as follow: 1. Download LiDE60 win7 setup file from canon website. 2. Run the setupsg.exe file. It will run but nothing happen, no pop up windows etc. 3. Follow the step 1-8 in this web site, you will find LiD60E listed in the canon windows in step8.
Download its full feature driver from here: -europe.com/files/soft27440/Software/lide20lide30n670un676un1240uvst7031a_xpen.exe and then install it using Windows compatibility mode: -to-install-printer-driver-in-compatibility-mode-on-windows-10/ 2b1af7f3a8
