CanoScan 8800f for Win 10 driver

So, I've upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10, what a mistake!  Arrrgggghhhhh!!!!  Can't find anything or know where to put anything.  Anyhow, my CanoScan 8800f doesn't seem to like W10,  the software won't take off the disc.  it doesn't seem to capture the menu correctly and certainly doesn't capture the driver to make the scanner work.  Has anyone else experienced that?  I see some people have talked about a driver program called "CanoScan LiDE 25 driver for Windows 10"  has anyone tried that?  I did use a generic Win10 app that came with Win10 and it did make the scanner scan, but no menu, no reference to storage or anything!  Let me know!

Hi Racer6727,

 

You can try installing the Windows 7 driver form our web site to install your CanoScan 8800F on your Windows 10 computer.  Please note, this is not supported and would be done at your own risk.

 

Once the driver is installed, you can click on the Software tab to download and install the MP Navigator EX and Solution Menu.

 

Please use this link:

 

https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/scanners/support-scanners-canoscan...

 

Once on that page, please select "Windows 7 (x64)" from the Operating System drop down box to make the available downloads appear.

 

Click on the Select button to the right of "8800F Scanner Driver Ver. 13.0.5" and then the Download button to download the driver.  When the download is complete, please open your Downloads folder and run or open "8800fwin641305ej.exe" to begin the installation.

Re: CanoScan 8800f for Win 10 driver

So I have the same problem--my Windows 10 won't even recognize my 8800f so that I can follow the directions you've given.  How do I fix this?  It's a $400 scanner that I use for EVERYTHING and I can't use it.  I'm very frustrated.  Can you help?

It sounds like Canon has no plans for developing a driver for Windows 10.  CanoScan 8800f is a second (rather expensive) piece of equipment I purchased from Canon that Canon stopped supporting after few years.  Canon has good quality products, but I am not going to buy any more Canon products.

Have you considered a Windows 7 virtual machine.  I have not tried that with this scanner, but it solved a similar problem with a different piece of equipment.
