LIDE 70 scanner with Windows 10 - how to force change from WIA to TWAIN drivers in Paperport11 ?


For quite some time the LIDE 70 scanner worked well with Windows 10, Paperport 11 and using the TWAIN driver. Recently, I suppose caused by a Windows update, the scanner is attached with the WIA driver. It works, but the WIA Canoscan Lide 70 interface offers less choices than the TWAIN interface. Uninstalling and reinstalling everything, LIDE 70 driver with Win 8 compatitility as suggested in or adding the path to the drivers as suggested elsewhere ended up with the WIA driver working with Paperport 11 always. Is there any way to force the TWAIN driver to be used with the scanner and not WIA?



Thanks for posting!

While our Forum Community members are welcome to chime in, the CanoScan LiDE 70 has been retired, and product support is no longer available. Once a product is retired, new drivers and software development stops, and official Canon support content (troubleshooting articles, user guides, how-to videos, drivers, etc.) can be removed from the Canon website.
