CanoScan 8600F and Windows 10

Since I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 I have not been able to use my 8600F scanner. As advised, I did the following:


  1. Uninstalled the CanoScan 8600F Driver by using Start, Settings, Apps & Features.
  2. Clicked on CanoScan 8600F
  3. Clicked on Uninstall and followed instructions.
  4. From Canon website CanoScan 8600F Drivers & Downloads I downloaded the driver for Windows 7 (x64), file 8600Ffvst641213ea15.exe and installed it by following the instructions.

Unfortunately, the scanner still is not working.

Using Start, Settings, Devices, Printer & scanners, CanoScan, Manage Open Scanner, Preview (or Scan), it makes the scan, but the image is black.

Using Photoshop Elements 15, the scanner is recognized as "WIA CanoScan 8600F" but the scanned image is black.


I would appreciate if anyone can give me detailed advice how to make my CanoScan 8600F work with my Windows 10, version 1709.


Thank you very much,
