I am trying to scan pages to my laptop and receive the above error message.  I can print to the printer a pixma mx452.

All of this should be a one-time installation on this specific computer.  Just make sure to open up IJ Scan Utility anytime you need to scan a document or photo.

 

Thanks for choosing Canon!

I am running windows 10 and the printer is connected wirelessly.  I can print wirelessly, no problem.

Where do I find the IJ Scan Utility Program?

If you installed the software bundled with your printer, you should have a folder in your Start Menu labeled "Canon Utilities." You'll find the full suite of Canon apps there.

 

We hope this helps!

This is a new laptop.  The printer was originally installed on the old laptop.  There is no Canon utilities folder on the new laptop.
