PIXMA MG3620 MP driver install issue


I am trying to run the MP drivers and software install so I can use the IJ Scan utility.  I get an error message that the specified pathname is too long for the MP drivers.  How can I get around this.  Everything else is working fine

Pixma MG3620, Windows 11 home, wi-fi, yes installing from ijsetup

I did manage to add the printer to my laptop and install print drivers and everything else is functioning.  I am able to print and make copies and was able to install My Image Garden and other utilities but I do need the scanner utility.  



Exact message I am getting is

The specified pathname is too long.  Change the pathname to within 180 characters.

Windows allows 260 characters so this appears to be an issue with the Canon installer software
