Canon IR1025 MFC fails to scan to Windows 7 64Bit

I installed a new Windows 7 machine in a small office replacing the older XP machine.
The client had used the XP machine as the Scan to directory for their scanner, the iR1025.

After we swapped for the Windows 7 machine it no longer is able to be scanned to.
We have reset the SMB setup on the 1025, but no success. I have seen an article about using a USB to connect and downloading scan drivers from the Canon site, but I have been unable to find them,

The Scanner does a better job and can do larger jobs than their ScanSnaps..

Any ideas to get the old iR1025 scanning again?

There are drivers for WIN 7

If you select drivers - select your OS and the select drivers again...

It is possibly that the scan software will not work anymore as Win7 has a different driver model, but it should work with Windows Fax and Scan. And if this works, other application (for Win7) should be able to scan as well.

Those are for Printing (Print Drivers)
It does not include any for Scanning.
In addition what I am really trying to do is to scan from the iR1025..

I have it setup on the machine with the \\machine\scans\ as the destination folder
with user and password.. but no go.

Where is the Canon Driver?

I am not looking to install software on the Windows machine. The canon should be able to "push" via SMB to the Windows 7 machine.

Take a look at this video, It is for a different Canon IR, but the concept is the same.
The IR 1025 has a similar web interface to setup scanning destinations.

it could be the firewall.. create a rule or use an existing rule to allow file and print sharing

Solved issue by going on the machine and setting it up per this:
2 Additional things I did was while in the settings I turned on the LM Announce
Then in the web interface for the machine, I just put in the IP, no "\\" no name.
in the Folder I put in "\scans", then the local user\ password.. and it works.

<OFF>: Does not send data to the file server.
<ON>: Sends data to the file server.
                         
Confirm that <SERVER> is displayed, then press [OK].
                         
Enter the NetBIOS name of the machine using - [numeric keys], then press [OK].
