    Hp has discontinued support for this scanner. There are no drivers for this device. HP Scanjet - Scanners not supported in Windows 10 | HP(R) Customer Support
    They want you to update your printer/scanner to a newer version. Multi Function printer/scanner/copiers are relatively inexpensive these days, the hardware is cheap, the ink is where they make their money.

    In the end I did a bit or reading up on Softpedia to see if there were any red flags, decided that the one odd positive from Virustotal is probably false, and took a chance on installing the driver in compatibility mode. And it works.

    In older days, I could "lie" to Windows, give it a printer that comes very very close to what I actually wanted, and sometimes that works. I'm not sure if that tactic will work presently.
