I have a Canoscan 9000F Mark II. I'm trying to get the scanner buttons to work with it -- particularly the COPY button. I've installed all available Canon software for Windows 7 (x64) for this scanner. When I hit the COPY button, I get this dialog box:
So I went into the Scanner Properties for the scanner and found this Events tab. But for every scanner button including COPY, it says "No application is registered for this event." It won't let me select anything other than Take No Action. The other choices are grayed out:
If I go to the original Canoscan 9000F (NOT the Mark II version) drivers and software page, I see this software called MP Navigator EX. I installed that just for the heck of it, since none of the Mark II apps seemed to want to register as a "registered app" for this function.
When I did that, it actually put that as a choice (the only choice) by Start This Program:
I thought that would do the trick, but then when I hit the COPY button, I get this dialog box:
So I figure that MP Navigator EX is missing from the Mark II download page for a reason -- it's for the original 9000F and is not compatible with the Mark II.
OK...so...what IS compatible?
What app do I need to "register" for this buttons in order for them to work?
I'm completely stumped. Someone please help; I'd greatly appreciate it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Actually, that did not solve it for me.
But after a little bit of searching, I found out a solution that should always work - worked for me on my Canon Lide 120.
I thought I post this here, so that other people profit from it also - although I must say, I would expect Canon to come up with a decent piece of software that works reliably.
DISCLAIMER: What I am going to explain involves direct changes of your Windows registry. That's a bit like an open-heart-surgery. If you are not careful, you can break your system. Don't blame me, if that happens. 🙂
Canon ships a software called IJ Scan Utility. If you install the scanner drivers, this is installed, too.
This tool is supposed to fire up, when you press one of the scanner buttons. Once it fired up, it is going to execute one of the "rules" defined in Canon's quick menu settings, where you configure what should happen, when the buttons are pressed.
If all things were as they should be, there would be entries in your Windows registry that register IJ Scan Utility as a so-called Autoplay Handler for your scanner's buttons using the Microsoft STI Still Image Application API.
Since these registry keys are either missing or not properly set, I will describe how to do that manually.
A big thank you to Matteo Rossi, whose post led me to the right direction.
So, let's get started.
That's it. You should be good to go now. And when you press a button on the scanner, whatever you configured in Canon's Quick Menu should be executed. E.g. if you press the copy button, the scanner should scan a document and then automatically send it to your selected printer.
Hope this helps.
Man, this is pathetic. Will no one from Canon offer any help here?
What does it take to get an answer on this?
This is functionality that should be ridiculously simple to use. It is advertised as such. Just press the COPY button to copy a document, and so on. It's proving to be impossible to get working.
