Any workaround to using a Fujitsu fi-4220C2 scanner on Windows 7 x64

Last Modified: 2013-12-27
Has anyone succeeded in finding a workaround to allow a Fujitsu fi-4220C2 scanner to be used on a windows 7 x64 machine?
The last driver produced by Fujitsu for this was a Vista x86.
I have Googled this and found a lot of questions and suggestions but nothing that appears to work.
I have tried most things including disabling driver compatibility detection, XP mode with the XP x86 driver, etc.
I have not tried a VMware workstation 8 Windows 7 x86 VM but I suspect that if the host cannot see the scanner, then the VM will not either.
I suspect the solution is a new (very expensive) scanner but just maybe there is wizard out there with an idea.  Reverting to x86 Windows 7 is not an option because of memory constraints.
