Q: Canon Lide 60 - WIA driver


I have one problem. I have Windows 7 RC (build 7100, 64-bit) as my primary (only) OS. Everything works just fine but i have one "little" problem.
I have Canon Lide 60 scanner and its not working completely. I can scan winth CanoScan Toolbox but i can?t access scanner settings under control panel. And i can?t import/scan directly through Photoshop.
I just receive error message about WIA driver.

Here is screen:

I get this message when i am trying to double click on icon in control panel or in photoshop.

Look in your old Windows VISTA/Windows directory for a file named twain_32.dll and copy it to your Windows 7/Windows directory.

Worked for me so I wish you same luck.

It's on the list of supported scanners for VueScan, which works without
requiring there be good Windows drivers installed.

It worked for me on Vista 64. You can try it free before paying for it. If you like it you can decide whether to buy the program or use the money for a new scanner. You don't need a driver for the Lide 30--this program does it all.

But I don't feel I should have to pay for a driver for the $80.00 scanner I just purchased a year ago (Yes, I got ripped off)

I have changed my PC and need to re-instal my scanner driver. However I have mislaid my English disc and only have the German/Dutch one. I have downloaded the English driver tb4135-en and it is on my desktop. I am at a loss how to instal it and use it. Can anyone please help?

A:Canon LiDE 30 scanner driver.

What you need to do is download the latest ScanGear ("LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver.") software package.

The Windows XP driver that I downloaded for the Canon LiDE 30 is called lide20lide30n670un676un1240uvst7031a_xpen.exe. I don't see where you found the file called tb4135-en.

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I have a Canon LiDE 200 scanner with an older driver. I found a newer 64-bit driver on the Canon website, but after installing it nothing changes with the driver?it's still the same old driver I had before. I have tried uninstalling the scanner (in Safe Mode) and then restarting the computer, but it doesn't change anything. The new driver from Canon is just an executable and so it runs and installs itself somewhere, although when I check in Device Manager the old driver is still there.

I would appreciate any help someone could give me in updating my scanner to the new 64-bit driver.


A:Canon LiDE 200 64-bit scanner driver problem

I finally figured out how to scan my drawings/images back into PS. CS6 does not install several legacy (pre-CS4) plug-ins, extensions, and presets, including TWAIN. You can download the optional TWAIN plug-in at the Adobe website, for both Mac and Windows. For CS6, I placed the TWAIN.plugin file inside my Photoshop Plug-ins folder. Now if you have CS6 (on Windows 7) it comes with two versions of Photoshop—one is in the Program Files folder (64-bit) and the other is in the Program Files (x84) folder (32-bit). I opened Windows Explorer and navigated to the PS plug-ins folder in Program Files (x86), then I restarted Photoshop. Voila! Problem solved! I can now scan from my Canon LiDE via the PS File > Import menu.

I tried to reload driver for a can lide 110. It started to scan but then in the middle it made a noise and died. I tried all over but now no reaction. No warm up noise, no scan progress display etc. Is that how a scanner dies? I guess there is not solution, right? Just confirming. I'm not a born pessimist but stuff happens.

Hello !

Has anyone an idea how to get the Canon Lide 35 Scanner working under Vista 64? I tried everything, but even Vuescan won't work.

A:Canon Lide 35

I have been able to make my LIDE 35 work under Vista 64 by manually installing it as a LIDE 60 and also using the Canoscan Software for LIDE 60.
To install manually, first install the LIDE 60 Vista 64 drivers from the Canon website . Now connect your LIDE 35, then cancel the installation process. In the device manager, select the inactive LIDE 35 and choose to update the driver. Select "all available drivers", then point to the LIDE 60 drivers listed under Canon Inc.
Works a treat!

I own a Canon Lide 210 scanner since about 2011 which worked fine using WIndows 7 since then and still does.
But after I upgraded all my computers (2 laptops and one desktop) to WIndows 10 it does not work anymore on the desktop to which it is connected.

The newest scanner driver and application from Canon is installed.
Sometimes it works for one or two pages. But then the scanner just stuck in the middle of the scan
and the application just freezes. In the device manager I have no problem.

As I thought it is the problem with the Windows upgraded from WIndows 7 to WIndows 10 and so
I decided to install Windows 10 new. Result was the absolut same problem.
On my both Notebooks (Lenovo T440p, HP 840 G1) the scanner works without any problem, just I don't use it with these devices.

Sometimes I get the error code 2, 155,177 from ScanGear ... I also don't know how to use this values.

I've had this scanner for awhile. It started off not working, then it worked fine for a few months, now all of a sudden it's acting weird again. There are two issues: a) I click on "autoscan" and it immediately opens into Adobe elements, which I do not use. I have no way to switch the assocation; there is nothing anywhere I can see that would allow me to do that.

b) Sometimes it will actually go into the scan mode, and I say go ahead and scan, and then it pretends like it's going to scan, and then immediately blasts an error message at me: "Unlock the switch and try again." I have done this....over and over and over again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the scanner driver. I have disconnected all cables, then uninstalled the driver, then restarted the computer, and then reinstalled, attached the cables, and this has solved nothing.

If I go into devices and printers and click on "scan", it will pretend to scan, but the scan is absolutely black. Done this several times.

In device manager it says everything's fine. How do I a) stop it from automatically going into Elements?????????? I don't know elements, and furthermore, once in there, there's no way to scan; or at least, I don't know the program and don't want to have to deal with this. I just want to scan a darn photo! b) How can I get a scan made???

A:Canon Lide 110 Scanner will not work!

I just hooked up a Canon Lide 90 yesterday. I know you have already removed, and reinstalled the drivers, but I believe I would remove the drivers you have, and start from scratch/blank slate. Use Google to link to the Canon support/drivers link. Once there choose Consumer and home office/Scanners/Canoscan series/, scroll down untill you see Canoscan Lide 110/choose driver & software/, scroll down till you see select your OS, then select your os from the drop down box. After you have accomplished that, scroll down, and click driver/download the driver(you could have had a corrupt driver, and a fresh one never hurts). After the download completes, scroll down to software, click software. Download MP navigator, that is Canons scanner software with all the tools you need to scan, etc. After MP navigator has been downloaded, go offline. Now, go to where you downloaded MP navigator, and execute the software. After that, go to where you downloaded the Canoscan driver, and execute that. If all goes as planned, and both programs execute aok, plug the scanner in, your computer should recognize the scanner, and you should be able to scan using the MP navigator software. Now, that said, if you have other problem(ie the scanner is toast, or other computer issues, that is a completely different story). But that is how I set my Lide 90 up, and had no problems, worked the first time.

Good Luck

I bought a Canon Canoscan LIDE 200 flatbed scanner a month ago to replace another Canoscan that died after 6 yrs of constant use. It scans faster than the old one, easier to use & I get great photos. However, I'm now having a problem w/the drive. I close down the scanner at end of the day along w/all other open programs. Last wk when I tried to scan something I got a msg that the scanner drive could not be read. I found instructions on Canon site to unplug cord from scanner, download new drive, replug in scanner. The scanner worked fine rest of that day. Couple of days later, same thing - drive not recognized. I reloaded it again & scanner worked. This has now happened 4 times. I'm going to leave the scanner program open tonite to see if that helps. Reloading drive is not really difficult, just aggravating & time consuming. I can't find any help on Canon site other than download new drive; also can't find any way to contact Canon Support. The scanner uses MP Navigator EX ( I don't really know what that is). Old scanner used ArcSoft. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My Canon Lide 110 Scanner has recently acted a little odd in regards to small business card scans.

The card is placed correctly on the glass, centered perfectly, but when I open the finished scanned product, the card is located on the extreme bottom of the screen. Normal size documents appear to scan normally. It's small business cards that are not scanning centered.

This is a somewhat newer problem.

Now, I have a brand new computer and the scanner is still acting whack.

FYI : This scanner is used daily, at least 3 times a day, 7 days a week.

What do you think might be wrong ?

It is strange that Canon is not releasing Vista x64 drivers for Lide 20 scanner. Neither US page nor UK page have the drivers, although the later Lide line scanners to have the drivers for 64 bit Vista.

It is possible to get the scanner working on Vista x64. Vuescan applications installs its own drivers and actually is a very nice application to work with. It is not free though (40$ for standard, 80$ for pro) and limits you to usage only within Vuescan, meaning that other applications will not see the drivers that Vuescan has installed and you will have to use Vuescan all the time. It is a grear application though that outperforms any bundled-with-the-scanner utilities that I have seen.

However I would like to know if there is a beta Vista x64 driver for Lide 20 or if there any free solution for this driver issue.

I have a computer with Windows 7 x64 installed and a Canoscan LiDE 100 from Canon, which has drivers dated from 2008 that work fine. The scan works without a problem.

However, the actual Canon software doesn't seem to work with it. Here is the link to it:
Canon U.S.A. : Support & Drivers : CanoScan LiDE100

The software is:
MP Navigator Ex and Solution Menu.

I downloaded the Windows 7 x64 version.

The problem is that, whenever I start MP Navigator, Windows just tells me that it stopped working. I already tried compatibility mode with Windows XP SP3 and Administrator rights.

Am I missing something? Am I the only one with this problem too?

No, you are not the only one. I have a Canon LIDE 30 and that does not work with Windows 7 x64 either. The alternative is to either use VueScan software or buy a newer scanner (the printer/scanner all in one devices are cheaper than dedicated scanners).

Hi.  I had been running Windows 7 Ultimate RC, since July.  When I plugged in my scanner, it went and found the correct software (CanoScan Toolbox), and my scanner worked perfectly.  This weekend I installed Windows 7 Pro.  When I plugged in the same scanner...nothing happened.  So I installed the CanoScan toolbox, using the setup CD that came with the scanner.  I didn't think much of it.  Subsequently, I pushed a button on the scanner, and Windows Fax and Scan opened, and the scanner made a terrible noise. When I open the CanoScan toolbox, and try to scan, it says "unable to select TWAIN source."  I have tried the troubleshooter, downloaded the driver and the entire CanoScan program (for 64-bit Vista) from Canon's website, and tried many other fixes.  Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

A:"Unable to select TWAIN source" - Canon LIDE 25 scanner issue

I know that you've already managed to solve the problem yourself; here you might keep the following method as the reference if you encounter the same issue in the future.
According to the description, you should add c:\WINDOWS\twain_32\CNQLxx (xx is the number of your scanner) to the PATH environmental variable.
To change your PATH variable, go to Contorl Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables button and then New a path for your scanner in the System Variables window.

My problem seems to be multiple so here is the history.
Tried to install the drivers for Canoscan D660U but the scanner did not show up so I uninstalled it.
Bought the LiDE 600F and followed the directions (I thought) and downloaded the driver from SUPPORT-HUB (For Windows Vista?) but in my ignorance downloaded a 68bit version. It was clever enough to tell me I was wrong and did not finish the installation.
went back to the website and downloaded lide600fvst1212ea15.exe (the only other vista option). Installed it - plugged in the scanner, got a 'plunk' sound but no scanner visible.
uninstalled that and used the original disk that came with the scanner to install the driver, toolbox and manual only. - plugged in the scanner, got a 'plunk' sound but no scanner visible.
checked Device Manager and the scanner is under Other Devices and has "This device is not configured correctly (code 1)" so I tried clicking "update driver". That tried but came back with a error message of "found drover software but encountered an error while attempting to install it - this device not configured correctly (code 1)"

I feel I am going in circles and don't know what else to try. Can you help?

Hello seashellsurfer and welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

I refuse to buy anything from Canon because they refused to support their customer base when they decided we did not need Windows 7 drivers. There aren't any Vista drivers for your model either and XP drivers will not install even in compatibility mode. Scanners are one of the last devices to receive attention for Windows 7 drivers, unless one was willing to pay big bucks for a new model.

I have an old XP computer on my home network just so I can use my Canon printers and my scanner.

Another possibility would be to install the free VirtualBox. It will allow you to install a copy of XP inside your Windows 7 computer and may give you back the use of your Canon scanner.

Otherwise, you can use this Windows 7 Compatibility web site to find an affordable replacement scanner with Windows 7 support?

I figured out how to get this scanner to work in Vista 64 about a year ago and have now got it working in Windows 7 x64. So in case you didn't see my Vista post i thought I'd post it in here also.

It uses the Canoscan LiDE 60 scanner 64bit driver:

Files required: Winrar, lide60vst6411111a_64en. Canoscan Toolbox 4.9 or 4.5
Use Winrar, right click the file and select Extract to lide60vst6411111a_64en\

Open the folder it creates 'ide60vst6411111a_64en'

Inside the folder you'll find SetupSG.exe, extract it the same way again and you will find the driver

Go to your Device Manager (right click Computer - select Manage)

Plug in the scanner so you can see it pop up in the Device Manager

Right click it, Update / Install driver

Select Browse my computer for driver then Let me pick from a list of drivers, just select 'All' then click OK

Select Have Disk then Browse and select the CNQL60.INF file inside the SetupSG folder.

It will say that it isnt the correct driver and may not work..... but its lying
~ CanoScan Toolbox ~

If you do not install this it won't work.

I use version 4.9 which can be found here

I have an issue with my CanoScan Lide 500F scanner. I have viewed a similar question that was posted in 2008 and followed the advice given there, to no avail.

I have used this scanner with this computer (a Fujitsu FMV-Biblo NF/G50 running Windows 7) successfully (the last time I used it was in May this year). However today when I tried to use it, the ScanGear Starter wouldn't open when I double clicked on it. I have tried uninstalling the driver and then re-downloading (ScanGear CS 11.220a) the latest driver. I have also tried downloading and installing the Canon Toolbox (version I still can't get the scanner to work.

When I go to the control panel and find the scanner, the computer has registered that it's connected, but says it needs an appropriate WIA driver to run it.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

A:CanoScan Lide 500F driver problem

Let me start by saying I'm not 100% sure about all this, but here's a guess or at least something to try

First, there's two different types of scanner drivers WIA and TWAIN (also see here)
> WIA is Windows Image Acquisition a newer standard
> TWAIN was the old standard

When i look at the Cannon support/download site for the driver you mention i see it listed as

TWAIN Driver - LiDE 500F Scanner Driver Ver. (Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000)
Notice it's listed as a TWAIN driver!

So... one thing that comes to mind: Check your scanner tool options/settings to see if it let's you choose the type of scanner driver to use. If so, be sure it's set to TWAIN

Also, do you happen to have MS Office installed as when i scan directly into Word, i know it gives me the option to choose WIA or TWAIN.

Hope this info might help

/* edit */
btw.. My guess is all of this maybe meaning: You have an older scanner that's not fully WIA compliant so it requires you tell it to use a TWAIN driver to work

I notice that there are a number of posting in regards 64-bit drivers for Canon printers but no other posting for the Canon LBP 5100. I purchased this printer around 12 months ago and simply love it, mainly due to the auto duplex that make printing out PDF such an easy task.

I intend building a new computer in the coming months and have more or less decided on installing Windows 7 Home Premium or Pro (Retail) 64-bit. The only major problem I can see with the 64-bit is with the Canon Printer LBP 5100, the canon website shows a 32-bit driver for Vista but no 64-bit versions. Contacting Canon NZ I received a reply stating that as far as they can ascertain there will be no 64-bit drivers for this printer unless Canon Japan decides different.

Questions please: I have been told that Windows 7 will come with a driver for the Canon LBP 5100 but can't find any information in regards this, so my question is does Windows 7 come with a driver for this printer?
If it does will the auto duplex still work?

Anyone knows how to contact Canon Japan (in English) about a 64-bit driver for this printer?

Had anyone that uses this printer come across a work around for a 64-bit driver for this printer.

A:Canon LBP 5100 64-bit Driver

Their is a similar post above yours for the lpb 5000. And from their question I can ascertain that windows 7 doesn't come with a driver for your printer since they can't be theirs to work. Even if W& did cone with a driver it would be a printer driver (just basic ) and most likely wouldn't include the applications needed for duplex. Sorry but after 7 is released on the 22 nd maybe with enough inquiries cannon will get with the program. But from their point of view i assume they would just rather sell you a newer model printer.

I uninstalled my Canon iP3000 software, and then when I tried to reinstall it, it got to a stage in the setup process where it asks you to connect the printer to the PC. But where the PC would normally detect a new hardware device, it didn't. My guess is that the driver wasn't uninstalled, although when I look under drivers, I can't see anything under Canon. (I have Windows XP pro). The installation cannot proceed without this, and the computer doesn't detect the printer.

I had originally installed the printer software with Ashampoo, so I used that uninstaller to uninstall, but it seems even that didn't detect everything.

First, make sure you uninstall any previously installed printer drivers in add/ remove programs which may conflict with the installation.

Check Device Manager for driver issues.

Select the newest version from the list. Then click download.

Do not turn on the printer until the software is installed.

It almost sounds like there's a permission problem with using the printer with the laptop. Try going to the printer properties on the machine that the printer's connected to. Go to the Security tab and make sure that your laptop login computer name is there and all of the permissions in the ACL list are checked. You could also try going to Network Neighborhood, go to the computer that has the printer connected and try to connect to the printer through there.

I was told the INFCache.1 file was causing issues with USB devices. I went and deleted that file, unplugged the USB plug, reinstalled the driver, plugged it back in. It recreated the INFCache.1 file and it tried to install the printer, but it failed.

Just after some help with the MP780 on 7 x64.

The printer is plugged in via USB to another machine on the network. On the 7 machine I am running through the add printer wizard, which finds the printer and looks for drivers.

The first problem is that it can't find the MP780 drivers on Windows Update, which I think it should.

After it fails there, it asks to find the inf manually. I have downloaded the drivers from the Canon Australia website but that's just an installer. I have also downloaded drivers from other random driver sites but it just gives me fax and scan infs, nothing else.

Any ideas for me?


A:Canon MP780 Driver Issue

OK if you can install this it might work - make sure the driver package is unzippped to a folder - or just select the setup.exe file and do the following if it wont unzip - this resolves an OS mismatch when the driver wont install on w7

To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

Driver page v6.20 - to download firstly click on the file, go to nxt page then - under disclaimer is download - select "i have read the instructions etc" then select download -in "red" and then click save

If that doesnt work try installing it thru device manager and pointing to the folder the driver is unzipped to.

Hi folks,

Her indoors is not happy!!

I have converted her Lenovo laptop into a dual boot (XP/7 32-bit) - the intention being to get everything she uses onto 7 and "convert her" to 7 too

In XP she has been happily using her wireless connected Canon MG6150 and was comfortable with its scanner driver (Scangear).

In 7 I located the printer on the network and Win 7 got the driver for it. The "printer side" of the driver is fine but the "scanner side" is very minimal (it's a WIA rather than TWAIN) and she's not a happy bunny.

Should I remove this printer and start over, using Canon's own software? Bearing in mind that this printer is already wirelessly connected, what's the best procedure - install the software first from Canon's site and then connect the printer? If so, how do I stop it from searching Windows Update for a driver?

When I downloaded the driver from Canon for this printer/copier, it wouldn't work on my 64 bit OS. Canon support confirmed that there is no 64 bit driver and no current information about whether they will offer one.

Any suggestions about alternate ways to get this printer to work? I didn't realize that the Vista driver would only work for 32 bit, grrr.

Thanks in advance.

When I attempt to scan a document, the canon dr-2010c pulls it in half way then stops. It freezes and nothing else can be done. If I cancel and try again, an error message tells me the driver is busy. I have also gotten an error that the device cannot be locked and another program may be trying to use it. I do not have any other scanning software on the computer. Could this be a port problem? maybe the scanner is sharing a port with something else?? I have a HP deskjet and an Okidata printer installed, but they always work fine. I dont know what is causing this conflict. any ideas???

Thank you

After six working days of jumping through hoops, I have finally managed to install a brand new Canon LBP6650dn.

If anyone else is thinking of buying one in the UK, note that

(a) the supplied software disc is only compatible with Win 7 32bit

(b) Canon UK online and telephone support were basically no help and the drivers on the UK site do not work

(c) via a contact in Canon UK, I finally figured out the answer.

What you do is go to Canon U.S.A. : Consumer & Home Office : imageCLASS LBP6650dn
and follow the instructions.

This will install the printer as an "unspecified USB device".

Right click on that, run Windows troubleshooter, and when it tells you that the driver is missing, click on "Fix this problem".

Everything will then be sweetness and light - at least until you try to override the printer defaulting to single-sheet feed. But that's another story (which as yet has no end) ...

Which driver do/did you use? There are 3 there and they all have this note...

Before starting the driver installation, connect only the LAN cable first, do not connect the USB cable at this time.
This is necessary for your printer to acquire IP address automatically before you start the driver installation and enable driver installer function.

I bought this printer for a buck at a garage sale. They claimed it worked, but had no ink. I paid around twelve dollars for the ink cartridges on ebay, but forgot to check first to see if Canon had a driver for xp. They don't. However, when I go to microsoft's printer support page, I find that printer listed as one that there are drivers for in xp.

The question is--should I assume Microsoft is correct, or assume that my printer won't work and just get rid of it?


A:Question on driver for Canon printer (BJC-620)

I would go with the Win98 drivers they have listed on Canon's website. If microsoft has drivers for XP, try them first. The worst that can happen is that it won't work.

I have a Canon i9100 printer which worked great through XP, Vista and Win 7....Canon provided updated drivers.. However, for 8.1, Canon does not provide a driver for this printer. Is there another source which makes a generic driver for this printer so it does not become obsolete?

A:Solved: Canon Printer Driver For 8.1

The below image shows the list of compatible Windows versions for the Canon i9100 printer.

Unless Windows 8.1 provides a built-in generic driver for it, you're probably out of luck.

I have a custom made computer Win 7 -Home Prem 64

My regular HP printer broke down (but was working wirelessly just fine)

So I want to substitute an old Canon Fax Phone L80 I have that worked OK on a Vista OS (another machine)

The system "found" the L80 as I plugged it directly into UBC

Says driver not found.......Win couldn't find one automatically and I have no disk

Manual downloaded a driver from Canon....I have no idea how the particular driver arrives and what file it is supposed to download to, maybe that's my problem,

Still can't find driver by hitting Add New printer.

Help file was incorrect, as to what tabs would appear when trying to manually download

So even though the L80 shows up in "Devices & printers" I can't get the driver driving!

What am I missing.........any ideas?

thanks in advance if you can give me a clue

Canon Scanner 4200F;OS Windows 7 (64)Downloaded, from Canon site, the CanoScan toolbox AND the 64 bit driver.Both installed correctly and are recognized by the system.When I tried to scan, using the toolbox, the Scanner lamp goes on but the scan will not initiateand the error "Cannot communicate with the scanner - check cable and connection."Changed USB ports - same msg.reloaded drivers - same msg.Canon help claims that the problem is that the OS is "blocking the Communication"Q:  If this is true how do I unblock?

A:Canon Scanner driver problems

The issue IS that although the Canon supplied driver for the 64 bit Windows 7 OS loads the WIA driver is required for the scanner to operate.  The WIA driver that came with the 4200F is 32 bit and will not load.Contacted Canon support and finally got them to understand the situation.The outcome is that they are sorry for the inconvience - BUT there is no 64 bit WIA available.Looks like the only solution is to purchase a new, compatable, scanner.Canon won't get the business.Thanks to all.

I pulled an old printer out of the closet to use on a new PC that I am building...just to have a printer connected to it. It doesn't work with the print driver provided with WinXP and Canon no longer supports it. Does anyone know where I might find a print driver for it. It prints test pages very nicely.

Hi All-

I've got a Canon D661 connected via USB and I have been looking for a compatible driver for Windows Pro 64 bit. I'm not sure if this is possible, but if there is another driver that would just get the printer to print, that would be great!

Thanks in advance!

Hi ShantiK1, Canon tells me there are no 64-bit drivers for Win 7 64 bit machines (only 32 bit). the only thing I can suggest is running XP in virtual mode Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup this way you will have a working printer

Anyone aware of a fix so that windows 7 64 bit can install and use caroscan 5000f flatbed scanner?

A:canon carascan 5000f driver

I just checked here - Film and Negative Scanners - USB Flatbed Scanner - CanoScan 5000F - Canon USA Consumer Products and see there are no Windows 7 drivers for that scanner

You could try Vuescan from Hamrick if you don't find a suitable solution. The software allows you to use your scanner on a 64-bit OS through its program by providing its own 64-bit driver. It usually offers more options and tweaks over the standard software issued with the scanner. The downfall (if you want to call it that) is it will set you back $40.00 for the Standard edition or $80.00 for the Pro edition. There is a 30-day trial version as well.
