This simple fix I found online worked for me:

 
Start> in the run box type. Services.msc

Scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)

Right click, select Properties

Check that Startup type is set to Automatic

Click Log On Tab

Check that Local System account , and Allow service to interact with desktop is checked. Hit apply.

Click Recovery...Click on window next to First Failure, Scroll to Restart the Service. Hit apply.

Of course... no.  It doesn't fix anything.

 

Again, this is a CANON product, and CANON  software, and it's for the model of MF device I am using  (MF4890dw)...   Downloaded FROM THEIR WEB SITE.

 

And it doesn't talk.

 

When will CANON fix it??

Re: MF Toolbox doesn't work on Windows 10

Thanks for that. I am still having occasional problems. Recently MFtoolbox stopped working again, and finally it did again after a reboot. The windows scanner app does work, but apparently doesn't do multi page pdf scans, which I often need. Hopefully this fix is the end of the problems. Cheers !

I have Windows 10 Home Versioin 2004 !

Microsoft OS Build 19041.685 was installed on 2020-07-23 and my very old Canon Image Class MF4150 is still scanning and printing.

I did have some problems in the past but a firmware update seemed to fix it.

If some geek wants to tell me what and where to look to get the key settings and software versions for MF Toolbox, let me know. I'll try to provide the configuration I have which isn't giving me any problems.

Re: MF Toolbox doesn't work on Windows 10

I am not wasting more time doing REDUNDANT stuff  

Run as as admin, reinstalled, patch thin, replace that, hack this registry, blah blah blah.

 

NONE of it fixes anything.

 

Canon Toolbox DOES NOT WORK with my Canon device.  I AM WAITING FOR CANON TO FIX IT...  AND CARE

And to rub salt in it.... I was hit wth a "survey" from Canon for the community...  AND IT WON'T TAKE MY COMMENTS.  It says "Authentication Failed"

 

------------------------------------------------

Does ANYONE from Canon monitor this? Can Canon actually show ANY desire to support their product?

For a YEAR the "ToolBox" doesn't work with my MF4895... and yet it's YOUR hardware, and YOUR software... So I'm left out in the cold trying to find some user who cares about my issue more than Canon does.

Re: MF Toolbox doesn't work on Windows 10

This worked for me a couple years ago

 

I found this Scanner-only version at Canon Malaysia that installed (not available on Canon USA). So now I can use my network scanner again

Re: MF Toolbox doesn't work on Windows 10

No, no restore point, this was a fresh Windows 10 installed from a previously Windos 7 laptop.

 

There were literally gigs and dozens of development tool installs.  Plus the occasional "This application needs .NET ver... or KB such and such".
Or with Microsoft, even stuff that you don't know about and can't remove.

 

I'm a developer, and I know NOT to rely on MS for much of anything.  If something that my customer needed suddenly didn't work, I'd WANT to know what I did wrong, or what MS did that makes my product fail.
