How to Download and Install UMAX Astra 5600 Driver for Windows 7

If you have a UMAX Astra 5600 scanner and want to use it on your Windows 7 computer, you may face some difficulties in finding and installing the right driver. The official website of UMAX does not provide any driver for Windows 7, and the driver CD that came with the scanner may not work properly on the newer operating system. However, there is a way to download and install a compatible driver for your UMAX Astra 5600 scanner on Windows 7. In this article, we will show you how to do it step by step.

What You Need

  • A UMAX Astra 5600 scanner and its USB cable.

  • A Windows 7 computer with an internet connection.

  • A software that can extract RAR files, such as WinRAR or 7-Zip.

What You Need to Do

  • Download the UMAX Astra 5600 driver for Windows 7 from this link: [1]. This is a compressed file in RAR format, so you will need a software like WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract it.

  • Extract the RAR file to a folder on your computer. You will see two files: Setup.exe and Scanner.ini.

  • Connect your UMAX Astra 5600 scanner to your computer via the USB cable. Make sure the scanner is turned on.

  • Run the Setup.exe file as administrator. Follow the instructions on the screen to install the driver. You may need to restart your computer after the installation is complete.

  • Open the Scanner.ini file with a text editor, such as Notepad. You will see a line that says "MaxRes=600". Change the value from 600 to 1200. This will enable you to scan at a higher resolution of 1200 dpi.

  • Save and close the Scanner.ini file.

  • Your UMAX Astra 5600 scanner is now ready to use on Windows 7. You can scan documents or images using any scanning software, such as Windows Fax and Scan or Paint.
