Do I Need to Install the Canon MP610 Printer Application Software?

Posted: 12-16-2008, 04:21 PM
I'll be helping a neighbor set up a new Dell with Vista Home Premium. She bought a Canon all-in-one MP610 printer with lots of application software on the CD - MP Navigator, Easy-PhotoPrint, ScanSoft OmniPage SE, Easy-WebPrint, and ArcSoft PhotoStudio. I know i need to install the OCR software, but wonder about the rest. Do I need the MP Navigator for this printer to work? Will the Navigator or PhotoPrint software hijack any settings? Also, when I checked online, I found a new driver for Easy-PhotoPrint that's dated 10/08. If I install that driver after a full CD install for the printer, do I need to uninstall the older PhotoPrint utility first?

I found general applications info on Canon's site. If there is a better source that can help me decide whether these utilities are needed, please provide the link.

Thanks for your help.
Jim

You (or rather the neighbor) won't need any of these for general use. I do
use Easy PhotoPrint and sometimes PhotoStudio but I don't have any of the
others installed. I scan direct to Adobe Acrobat if I need PDF/OCR. Since
I don't have any all in ones, I don't know about the Navigator, but s/he
should try for a couple of days and see if they are needed, they can easily
be installed at a later date.
