Hello, I have just joined and hope someone can help.
I have a BJC85 portable printer and although it is old it is brilliant.
I have aquired the Canon IS-12 scanner head but cannot find the software for it.
I emailed Canon UK for help but it appears to be an automated reply saying "I have passed their covid rules for someone to come on my site"!
Does anyone know where I can get a copy of this software (I do not mind paying)
I tried on the internet and ended up with a virus (removed) from their "driver app"
I am using win 7 home on a asus netbook.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The ISScan softwarwe for the scanning cartridge of the BJC-85 is not supported with Windows 7. The last operating system it was supported with was Windows XP.
That said, you can always try to install the ISScan software on your Windows 7 computer in compatiblity mode for Windows XP. Please note, this is not supported and would be done at your own risk.
Please use this link:
Once that page loads, please choose "Windows XP" from the Operating System drop down box and the ISScan software will be available. Click the "Select" button to the right and then click the "Download" button to download that to your computer. When the download is complete, please right click "ISScan_v350.exe" and left click on Properties. Click on the Compatibility tab at the top. Set to run in Windows XP compatibility mode and then close the Properties. Double click "ISScan_v350.exe" to install.
You could also download a Virtual Winodws XP environment for use with Windows 7 and try it that way:
Again, this is not supported and would be attempted to your own risk.
