Hi There, I just registered to say thank you for the original poster scoutfu for the great tip that brought my Lide 35 scanner back to life! Beside this I want to extend it with additional tricks, because I see it still does not work out of the box for many others (just like me). One year ago I installed it on Win7 (64 bit) with smaller issues, now in Win 8.1 with major issues - but both can be solved. The basics are the same, download the driver for Lide 60 from the official Canon website; Win7 64 bit driver will work for both Win7 and Win8.1 (don't know about Win10). For me the Canon toolbox and Winrar were not needed, the image software I use (FastStone - give it a try, it's free and great!) can deal with it, if the driver is correctly installed. Instead of Winrar I used 7zip's context menu item in Total Commander.
Unzip the downloaded driver (2 steps) as per the original post. The result is 3 directories, plus an.inf file along with a readme. Plug in the scanner to an usb port. Go to the Device Manager part of Windows, select your scanner (probably it will appear with a yellow sign), refresh the driver by pointing to the extracted.inf file. This is exactly as per the original post. If successful, happiness and sunshine. If not: in both Win7 & Win8.1 I found that during pointing to the. Samsung Xe500t1c Windows 10 Drivers. inf file at driver refreshing stage, Windows told me that no appropriate driver was found (just like previous posters).
