Canon Pixma MP760 and Windows7 64 bit

  pienter 14:18 20 Oct 2010

I am in the process of switching from XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit. Although my Canon Pixma 760 printer is said to be compatible with Windows 7 when updated drivers are installed it turns out that this is only true of the 32 bit version. No drivers appear to be available for 64 bit. Has anyone found a solution e.g. is there a compatibility mode for 32 bit and if so how is it implemented?

I can confirm that if you go to the Canon support website linked to by james105051 and put in Windows 7 as the OS and English as the language you will find a 64 bit driver right at the top.

I thought that the item mentioned was only a modification to a driver rather than the complete driver but it seems to have worked. I had great difficulties getting the MyPrinter update to install and until I uninstalled MyPrinter and replaced it with the update the MP760 was not recognised. However everything now appears to be working satisfactorily. Thanks for the help.
