WIA is described here in detail:

Information on how to install such minidrivers:

Discussion on how to obtain such drivers is described in this discussion:

Kimputer is correct, you need to check which drivers you need and seek more specific/machine related information.

Hope this helps!

You don't just install WIA drivers. You hope the drivers that came along with your scanner ARE WIA drivers. The manufacturer decides this (though my estimate is about 99% is WIA for new hardware).

What are your scanners (exact brand/type/model).

Kimputer,
My scanner is SCANX
see here: http://www.airtechniques.com/product/scanx-swift/

After installing it does not install wia drivers....
I connected it to a HP pc core i3.... when using twain and calling for drivers
on the select source list only appears the scanx driver....
But no WIA, which is the with every other scanner....

xtermie: woring on your links will feed back in a day...
Thanks you

You should ask the manufacturer, in this case, Air Techniques, why they didn't make their drivers WIA compatible (could be that they have a good reason, hardware limitation or similar). Maybe they just didn't have the time or the budget to make it. Maybe if more customers complain, they will finally make a move towards WIA.
