The Visioneer 8700 works with Windows 7 by using the 8900 XP driver:
From the Visioneer website, download the latest 8900 XP driver.
Right click on 8900.303113.EN and select "Troubleshoot Compatibility"
If you get the red-box warning that XP drivers aren't compatible, then you're good.
When it is installed properly, it will show up as "Visioneer 87xx/89xx USB Scanner".
I have similar problem in windows 7 64 bit with visioneer 8700 usb scanner.
Can you please share what is the compatibility mode used for this? . I tried the recommended driver but did not get red box warning and unable to connect the scanner

This 'best answer' is no answer at all since they have neither Window 7 drivers nor Vista drivers. Is there a real answer to this question?
