I have an HP scanner called scanjet 4200C and I have downloaded the latest driver (created 2002) from HP website and it says it will not work with Vista. They are correct. But while I continue doing google searches many sites say that it now works with Vista service pack 1. I have vista service pack 2 and cannot get it to work. I hate to buy a new scanner. Can someone please assist me in getting this scanner working.

P.S. I seldom ask questions on this site, but when I do, you wonderful people always have been able to assist me. For that I am sincerely grateful, thank you.

This scanner has driver support for Windows 95, which automatically makes it the best part of about 14 years old now?

The scanner is not Vista compatible. Nothing you do will change this behaviour.

However download the trial version of this program and see if it works with your scanner. If so, the full version is only about $40.
