Windows Can't Load Your Scan Profile

    Windows Can't Load Your Scan Profile


    I know that Windows Fax and Scan is not an ideal solution for scanning, but I'd like to avoid installing additional third party software, if possible.

    WF&S works fine with my (Canon) scanner. It scans without a hitch. However, it is only able to use the default scan profile. If I try to create my own scan profile, I get this message:

    "Windows can't load your scan profile. Your profile settings might not be compatible with this scanner."

    I know that my intended profile settings (600 dpi, scan to PDF) are compatible with my scanner. How can I get WF&S to create a profile with my settings?
