SilverFast and Microsoft Windows Vista*


For the past six months we have been working very closely with our partners to ensure that SilverFast will be compatible with the manufacturer's Windows Vista* drivers. We really appreciate the cooperation we received at an early stage from our partners in getting SilverFast Vista*-ready. As a scanner software, SilverFast is dependent on the drivers to be compatible with the OS.

Due to the currently expected larger demand for Vista* 32-bit compatibility SilverFast will not be compatible with Windows Vista* 64-bit in the first step. Vista* 64-bit compatibility will be implemented subsequently with no final date yet.

The SilverFast DC, HDR product families and PrinTao are Vista* compatible from version 6.6 and later.



SilverFast is Vista* compatible for the following scanners/products:

Scanners with this symbol are supported by SilverFast 6.6.
Scanners with this symbol are supported by SilverFast 8.




Your scanner is not listed? Please download the latest Vista*-compatible scanner driver from your scanner manufacturer's website and test SilverFast before buying. For this test please choose Windows XP as your operating system.

For further information please have a look at our list of supported scanners.



* Even though SilverFast is compatible for Windows Vista, the essential hardware driver from the scanner manufacturer may not be compatible for Windows Vista. Only the combination of a Vista-compatible scanner driver + software will provide full Vista compatibility. Please check availibilty for vista compatible drivers from scanner manufacturers website.
