No working buttons on Canoscan 9000F Mark 2


Greetings CANON forum,


This topic is about the CANOSCAN 9000F Mark2 scanner. I hope the printer category of the forum can be used for that topic.


This scanner is great, but I have a small problem: "the buttons located on the scanner are not working properly".


These are more details:


- All settings have been defined in CANON SCANNER utilities in order to attribute an action to each button

- Each time I press a button, Microsoft Pulisher launches and no other action is undertaken.


PC is Windows 7 family edition X64, all drivers (including the canon driver) up-to-date.


After Christmas morning analysis, I discovered some interesting things:


- Drivers we download from CANON are declared from 1/10/2013 but if we look closer, drivers are from 10/09/2012 V I hope this is normal, I assume that this is the case.


- If I open the Windows printer properties, i definitely see (in properties of the SCANNER) that the action attributed to each button is: "Launch Microsoft Publisher", with no possibility to change to something else.


So my question is:


- It sounds that the actions attributed to buttons have no effect using the CANON tools. Is it a known problem? Is there a workaround so far?


Thank you so much!
