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).

WIA is described here in detail:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms630368(v=vs.85).aspx

Information on how to install such minidrivers:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff542807(v=vs.85).aspx

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 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.
