Scanning in Vista Business/Office 2007


Recommended Posts

Unless you have an automatic document feeder on your scanner The new Fax and Scan program in Vista wont let you save multiple pages to one file - folder yes, file - no.

To load Windows Document Imaging (which will let you scan multiples) go to

Control/Programs & Features/Office 2007.

Right click on Office 2007 - then click *change* from the drop down.

A list will appear, scroll down to Office Tools and expand it, look for Microsoft Document Imaging/Scanning. and put a check next to it. Click OK <or save>

Wait a moment or two and the program will install.

This tip saved me the cost of a new scanner which HP told me I would have to buy if I wanted to scan multiple pages.

Found it on a blog (cant remember which) in answer to a question posed about veiwing files saved in WDI.

HTH someone :)
