Need cheap or free scanning software - replace Paperport

I am looking for any recommendations for inexpensive or free scanning software to replace our ScanSoft PaperPort software.  We are now running windows 7 and our Deluxe 9 version won't run on Windows 7.  We typically just need to scan in multi page paper work into a pdf image.  We have the full version of Adobe acrobat if that matters. Thanks for any advice!

Three thoughts:

(1) Since you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat, use that. It will scan and make a PDF just fine.

(2) IrfanView is a terrific, FREE product that can scan (via TWAIN) and save a PDF (as well as many other image file types):

(3) The latest release of PaperPort, Version 12, supports Win7 and is reasonably priced. For example, a download of the standard version is $39.99 at Newegg:

If you do this, be sure to upgrade to 12.1 (FREE) at:

Thanks Joe,  I called Nuance, and they wanted $100 for a download.  I didn't even think of checking Newegg or the other online retailers.  If the Adobe Acrobat doesn't work for the client, we'll just buy the $39 newegg download.  Thanks!
