Windows 10: clone the Scanner driver for Brother MFC665CW
clone the Scanner driver for Brother MFC665CW
After lots of hiding behind bombastic sales-blurbs, Brother admits that my trusted 9-year old printer won't be able to scan over the network into Windows 10 (they only support USB connection for W10).
But one of the computers in my home knows better. It happily scans from my networked Brother printer-scanner, over WiFi. This computer started life as Windows 7, and I upgraded it to Windows 10 in December 2015. By now I got two other machines running Windows 10, and they can't scan. Actually, the scanner is recognised in both PaperPort 9 and the Windows Scan program. But they are unable to receive any data from the scanner.
Is there any way to somehow clone the scanner-related files from the computer which works to the one(s) which doesn't work ? One of the targets is a new creation, freshly upgraded from 7 to 10 on an otherwise empty disk. So, it's a low-risk exercise, there is nothing to lose if I stuff up the destination. But I'm hanging on to the "source" which works.
Hope this may be of help to someone.:)
The following file/driver enabled me to run a 2480 scanner in windows 10 64bit

It is Version 3.0u
Make sure you remove all previous drivers for the scanner, then...
My canon printer isn't supported by Windows 10. Troubleshooting it just tells me there is no drivers. It prints fine, but i cannot use the scanner. Is there any way i can get the scanner to work, more specifically in gIMP?
Have got an EPSON Stylus Office BX300F. I can still print but the Scanner part has stopped since I upgraded to Windows 10. I have been on the Epson site and got new Drivers for Printer ok. Nothing for the scanner. This is an all in one...
Recently installed win10 on my hp envy dv6-7363cl.
Laptop came with win8. It had a fingerprint scanner and beats audio speakers.
Is there a way I can get both back since the two are all hardware of the machine?
I have installed the fingerprint...
