Scan to CIFS on Windows 7 & Vista - Home Premium, Basic & Starter Editions
By default, the unit cannot scan to Windows 7 or Vista.
This article refers to Home Premium, Basic and Starter editions of Windows 7 and Vista only.
There are 2 modifications that can be made to Window's security policies that will allow 'scan to CIFS' to work.
As these versions of Windows 7 and Vista do not have the Local Security Policy snap-in available, it is necessary to edit the Registry to make the required changes. Please make sure before proceeding that you have a working restore point and all important data is backed up before making any registry changes.
Ensure you are logged in with Administrator privileges. Click the Start icon and in the search box, type Regedit and open the program that appears. If you are presented with a User Access Control dialogue box, please click Yes to continue.
Navigate to the following registry area: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
If the following values do not already exist you will have to create them. To do so, right-click on Lsa (on the left panel) and select New -> DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name them:
Ensure that the above spelling and capitalisation is used.
Once created, we need to edit these settings. To do so, double click on them to bring up the edit box. Change the settings as follows:
LmCompatibilityLevel = 1
NoLmHash = 0
After changing these settings, close Regedit and restart the PC.
Once you have done this go to Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Change your password. You don't actually have to change your password so New password can be the same as Current Password but you do have to click on the Change password box at the bottom right of the window to make this work.
