Installing a Cannon Scanner and Capture Perfect

Installing Canon Scanner and Capture Perfect


NOTE: Be sure to log into the computer as yourself twice.


  • Connect the scanner to power and to the CPU, but do not turn it on.
  • Open and allow the AppDepot to populate (sometimes takes a couple minutes)
  • Install the Canon Drivers first.
  • After they are installed, install Capture Perfect.
  • Go to All Programs and delete the odd folder that shows “ƒVƒ‡[ƒgƒJƒbƒg”
  • Go to Devices and printers, turn on the scanner and it should pull the drivers.
    • If you get the yellow triangle, right click the scanner and select Troubleshoot to resolve.
  • Log out and have the user log in.
  • Go to Start and type “Capture” in the search box. Grab the icon at the top of the window and drag it to the desktop to create a shortcut.
  • Open the program. You will need to select the scanner the first time you use it.
  • Change scan from Simplex to Skip Blank Page and click OK.
