Scanning Failing in 4.2.9 Build 7333

Recommended Posts

Sent a report re the Alpha build and scanning.

The 4.2.9 Buiild 7333 Beta has the same issue so needs fixing.

File Acquire From Camera or Scanner

Using Canon MG5300 scanner

Properties set to Colour image 6oodpi


Manufacturer: Microsoft

Description: WSD Scan Device

Click OK

Brings up Scan using Canon MG5300 series Scanner WS diaglog box.

Select either Colour Picture or Custom Settings

Click Preview (The image is visible)

Click Scan

Acquiring Data

The image scans but you end up with a blank screen with two small + symbols. You need to zoom in to see these clearly.

Previous version 4.2.8 and previous were working OK.
Using Windows 64 Bit latest build for Windows 10. Updates and Latest .NET Framework updates.
The above failed also before the updates to .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8

I've been meaning to look into this but I haven't had the time these last few days


Does it work if you re-install 4.2.8? Just run the installer from here, https://www.dotpdn.com/downloads/pdn.html


Sometimes things like this stop working and it seems like it's the app update but it's just a coincidence. Printing and scanning are notoriously fragile, but not because of Paint.NET.
