I am running XP and using a Canon LiDE 35 (?) scanner. It has been working fine for some time. Now, when I try to start scanning using the "MS Office Document Scanning" button that is pinned to my start menu, the application opens, but when I push the "scan" button it gives me the following error message : "Unable to Initialize Scanner." Please help. Cheers.

You can try to completely uninstall all Canon related software, as well as related Folders.

Reboot.

Reinstall everything and give it a try.

If this doesn't work, install it on the other PC that worked, and export the registry info.

Best Regards
