Scan from a WIA-compliant program (Windows)

WIA is another way to scan an image directly into a software program. WIA uses Microsoft software

to scan, instead of the HP Scan software.

Generally, a software program is WIA-compliant if it has a command such as Picture/From

Scanner or Camera in the Insert or File menu. If you are unsure whether the program is WIA-

compliant, see the software program Help or documentation.

Start the scan from within the WIA-compliant program. See the software program Help or

documentation for information about the commands and steps to use.


From the Windows control panel, in the Cameras and Scanner folder (located inside the

Hardware and Sound folder for Windows Vista and Windows 7), double-click the product icon.

This opens the standard Microsoft WIA Wizard, which enables you to scan to a file.
