Canon MF264DW Could not install the scanner driver. Try again Windows 11


I was using my MF264DW on my windows 10 PC but when I got a new PC the driver package would not install.

I now have Windows 11 Pro 

Version 22H2

OS Build 22621.2428

I tried for ten hours searching online and throughout the forums here for guidance. I tried every fix I found. I think the problem is that the scanner driver has an old certificate or expired certificate. Eventually was able to get almost everything but the scanner to work. I was able to install the following drivers: Canon MF260 UFRII LT, Canon Generic Plus PCL6, Canon Generic Plus PCL6 V250 However no scanner option will work with those drivers. 

I downloaded the latest version of the driver from Canon MF260MFDriverV6101WP. I put it into the C drive and ran as administrator. The install package gets stuck at the end of the process and stops me.

When installing over the network I am able to select the printer and it starts, but I get the error: Could not install the scanner driver. Try to install again

When installing over usb, the files go only so far before I get the error: An error occurred while copying files. Try to install again

Currently I can get the scanner to work if I instal a separate instance of the printer using the standard microsoft driver: Microsoft IPP Class Driver, but the windows scan app sucks. There are almost no settings and the scanning is super slow. I want to use the MF Scan Utility, but it says that there is no driver installed.

Is there a setting in the actual menus on the printer itself that might help?



I see everyone else is just as stumped as me. Is nobody else having this issue? I have searched and searched. What is the possibility Canon releases an update?
