Summary: Unable to install software onto my Windows Vista computer even though the thing is suppose to operate on nearly any Windows platform since XP. Installation CD did not Autorun. Installation error message whether using CD software or downloading software from HP website. Website useless - no live support. Forums did not answer question of installation.

I first tested it on some B&W prints with no luck. I thought I had a defective product because it seemed to lock up and not scan.
