CanoScan LiDE 25 driver for Windows 10

It appears that there is no Windows 10 driver for the CanoScan LiDE 25, possibly no Windows 8 driver either.

The Windows 7 driver and CanoScan software I have used for years will not work with Windows 10.

Why is there no Windows 10 driver? I think it would take very little work to code one.

Is it that Canon would prefer taking a chance that people will buy a Windows 10 compatible replacement scanner from them, and not another brand?

Has anyone at Canon evaluated costs and benefits for abandoning driver support for customers that have switched from Windows 7 to a later Windows version?

Does it bother anyone at Canon that perfectly good hardware may be sent to landfills, loyal customers will be lost, etc.?

I reinstalled the driver and application from the Canon support site under Windows 10 and it worked fine.

Canon support has already told me I'm SOL. The best they offered is a few dollars' discount on another scanner.

Today I found the solution.
I used the most recent driver from Canon, the Windows 7 driver, then followed this procedure:
