I'm glad to say that I am using my SJ5P with an Adaptec 19160 scsi
controller under VISTA Business version.
When I installed VISTA in dual boot with my XP Pro I "neglected" to
unplug peripherals as recommended but VISTA installed OK.
I tired the Scan element in VISTA's Fax & Scan but it said it could not
find a scanner.
I looked in Device Manager and both the Scsi card and the scanner were
there with no error flags.
I then did what I had to do in Windows 2000 and XP to get the scanner
working and that was to install the older HP scanning software:
That installed with no problems and at the end I used the Start /
Programs / menu item to run Scanner Test which it did and the baloon
went up at the end! Hooray!
The HP Copy Utility works perfectly too.
The file you need if you do not have Deskscan 2.9 is on the HP website
at this location for the US version but they may be a local version on
your HP website. It is called sj166en.exe for the English version and
the URL is:
or more specifically:
If you go to http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/welcome.html
select the country you need and then look for Software & Driver
If you need more help let me know what country and language you would
need to match your system.
