force 32bit driver under 64bit os

Post by SAMSAMHA » Wed Jun 04, 2008 3:21 pm

I am wondering is there anyway to modify or force a 32bit driver to install under Vista 64? I just recently moved to Vista 64 but got a canon scanner that only has 32bit Vista driver and no 64bit driver. I am wondering if there's anyway I can install the driver so I can use the scanner under Vista64. thasnk

Most likely not, unless its the install thats refusing to install. You can try to right click on the installer, properties, compatibility, and choose windows 32-bit. Other than that, you'll probably have to wait til they release a 64-bit one.

it's canon N676 scanner. It does not have any 64bit driver. This just sucks as I think it would be easy to have 64driver but canon simply refuse to support it.
