How Do I Scan Using the All-in-One Inkjet Printers (A924, A944, or A962) in Microsoft Windows Vista? - KB Article - 315255
The drivers for the All-in-One Inkjet Printers (A924, A944, or A962) may need to be manually installed in Microsoft Windows Vista.
Since the A924, A944, and A962 printers were not originally customized to work with Microsoft Windows Vista, the scan driver(s) may not be compatible with Windows Vista. However, the workaround for this issue is to manually install the scanner driver.
If you install the printer driver using the printer's installation software, you may get an error message.
