Thanks for your suggestion. However, I have a Brother printer and Paperport came with it. I contacted brother to see if they could help and they gave me paperport 11 which works fine with windows 7 and the MFC5840cn, in fact better than ever. Brother have the best support on the block.
How did you get their help? I have not had any luck at all and I can't use the OCR feature with my scanner. I'd appreciate your help.
