Canon Scanner LiDe 25 WIA Driver (Using with Paint.NET)

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Canon Scanner LiDe 25 and read the posts in this forum about compatability with Paint.NET.

After browsing the installation CD, I found out that the Canon Scanner WIA Driver 1.2.1 is a WIA and TWAIN-compliant scanner driver for the Canon Scanner.

On the CD that came with my scanner, it is found at (your CD drive letter):\WIA\x86\SetupWIA

There is also a ReadMe which notes that:

The Canon Scanner WIA Driver and ScanGear CS (TWAIN driver) cannot be present (installed) on the same system for the same scanner at the same time.

Some of the Canon Scanner WIA Driver functions are limited in comparison to ScanGear CS. Please use ScanGear CS if you wish to use the functions not included in the Canon Scanner WIA Driver.

CanoScan Toolbox does not support the Canon Scanner WIA Driver.

So the scanner should work with Paint.NET if you install the WIA driver, but you will no longer be able to use the CanoScan Toolbox if you do.
