Install the Scanner Software

  1. Run DD4103E.exe, which extracts setup files Setup.exe and ADBSetup.exe
  2. Run Setup.exe
  3. Run ADBSetup.exe
  4. Restart your computer

Update the Driver

Updating the driver requires your having to relax the digital signature restrictions on your computer temporarily, then restarting to ensure the restrictions are re-instated.

  1. Holding the shift key, restart your computer
  2. Click/tap Troubleshoot then Advanced options then Startup Settings then Restart
  3. Choose 7) Disable driver signature enforcement by hitting the F7 key
  4. With the computer restarted, context-click (right-click for right-handed users) the sonyscanners.inf file you created at the beginning of this tutorial, then choose Install
  5. Connect the scanner, turn it on, then launch the DiMAGE Scan Dual4 Utility software
  6. Once you’ve verified that the scanner works, restart your computer one more time

  1. Thanks, worked as well for my Dual Scan III. Usually using Vuescan under Linux, but wanted to give the original software a try…

    By the way, no ADBSetup.exe here, but worked anyways fine.

    1. I note with interest that you’ve been using VueScan and now want to try Konica Minolta Dimage Dual Scan original software – and curious what your comparisons have been so far.

      I am in the opposite position, having used the Dimage Dual Scan’s ‘original’ software for years on my Windows XP computer; and just recently experimenting with VueScan 64 on my Windows 10 computer.

      So far VueScan has proven to be faster and easier to use – but the scan results have been very poor compared to what I get with the original Dimage Scan Dual software. I’m scanning 1980’s vintage color negatives and slides and have experimented with all the adjustments, film types etc offered in VueScan (trial version). I get consistently bland and weak colors, often with ‘cold’ color balance – as compared to the same negs/slides producing much more vibrant and warm colors when scanned with the original Dimage Scan Dual software.

  2. Thanks a lot!

    With your clear instructions I finally managed to get around the “could not confirm scanner connection” error (Error = 4).
