Well, Microsoft’s latest version of Windows, Windows 7, gets released today. Similar to what we did with OSX Snow Leopard, I thought I’d make a post so that we can share our experiences using the Fujitsu ScanSnap with it.
I haven’t seen anything official from Fujitsu, but if I had to guess I would say that the ScanSnap S1500 will probably be OK, but the older models such as the S510 and S300 will require a bit more work to get working.
Since I have neither Windows 7 nor a Windows ScanSnap, I am relying on Google and you guys here.
This post from SevenForums seems to have a workaround to get the older ScanSnaps working.
Hopefully the Windows 7 release goes a bit more smoothly than the Snow Leopard one did. If you have any experience getting your ScanSnap working with Windows 7, leave a comment and let us know. I’ll post any relevant updates here.
Update: Fujitsu has posted a support bulletin outlining what will be supported when. Basically:
- S1500: End of November 2009
- S300: End of November 2009
- S510: End of December 2009
- S500: End of December 2009 (but it will not support 64-bit OS)
