I purchased a new PC with the Windows 8 (64 bit) OS. Previously I had a Win XP PC and I used this Canon scanner. The Canon Support site does not list any Windows 8 (64 bit) drivers for this scanner (CanoScan Lide50).  Can anyone provide a workaround so that I can use this scanner with the new PC?  Thanks.

This is a driver that was modified for Windows 7 64bit but for Windows 8 it may not work. I would run a viruscan of it at Virustotal.com just to make sure it is free of malware.

I don't believe you double click any setup file in the unzipped folder. According to the blog post you need to install the drive using Device Manager. Unzip the file to your desktop. Go to Device Manager. You should see a yellow exclamation mark in other devices. 

 

  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Scroll through the list and look for other devices
  3. Expand the other devices group, you will find a device with a yellow exclamation mark on it
  4. Right click on the device
  5. Click Browse my computer for driver software
  6. Click on browse and then navigate to the folder you extract the files to on your Desktop (I.e. the extracted ZIP file) then click next (check Include subfolders if it is not selected)
  7. If Windows thinks the driver in the folder is a match for the device you selected, it will install it.
  8. Once the Wizard finishes successfully, Reboot to allow driver installation to complete

I also have problem during the install of this driver. Device manager says: the hash for the file is not present i the specified catalog file. The file is likely corrupt or the victim of tampering. 

 

Should I try to download it several times or is there another source to download a working version?

I am not sure why that is but see this page. Supposedly the lide 60 drivers will work. You need to extract the files from the exe file downloaded. Then use Device Manager to update the driver.

You can download the Windows 7 driver here.

Try Windows 8 compatibility mode. to install the driver if using Device Manager does not work.
