Can anyone tell me how to install Microsoft Office Document Imaging Printer in Office 2007 (RFP). Although the Imaging program installs, the Printer does not, and the Microsoft Office 2007 Professional (86) Installer say that it is not an available feature.

Here's a response that was posted on the Office discussion boards:

Uninstall and then reinstall the MODI printer driver feature
using your Office 2003 CD. Instructions courtesy of Windows MVP
Carey Frisch:
1. Close all running applications. If you have any Office
application running, the driver will not be installed properly.
2. Go to "Control Panel" and "Add or Remove Programs".
3. Click on "Microsoft Office 2003" and then click on "Change".
4. Check "Add or Remove Features" and click "Next".
5. On the bottom of the page check "Choose advanced
customization of applications." and click "Next".
6. Under Microsoft Office click on the + sign in front of
"Office Tools"
7. Locate the object "Microsoft Office Document Imaging",
click the icon and select "Not Available".
8. Click on "Update". This will uninstall the MODI driver.
9. Repeat steps 1 to 6 to go back to the same location you
were before.
10. Locate the object "Microsoft Office Document Imaging",
click the icon and select "Run from My Computer".
11. Click on "Update".

If this doesn't work for you, you'll need to contact the beta support team as mainstream support doesn't handle beta questions.

My situation is a bit different - I have the Office XP disc, and used Office 2003 only as a free trial from my new computer. I tried the Office 2007 Beta and as a result had to delete all Office 2003 references in the registry and elsewhere before Office 2007 trial would install. So now, since the Document Imaging wasn't part of my Office XP, I can't use the solution posted. Anywhere else I can solve it

Thanks.

Sounds great, but that might work for Office 2003.... but the question here is for Office **2007**, in which case Office 2003 is no longer installed!

The answer is the same as 2003

The answer given here for is one who is having MS Office 2003. Let me know the answer for MS Office 2007 for Windows XP SP2.

I think the confusion people are having is resulting from the comment regarding having an Office 2003 CD. If you perform the following, you can install Document Imaging for Office 2007 (which is essentially the same steps noted above for Office 2003).

To resolve this issue, install the Microsoft Office Document Imaging program. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.
2. In the Currently installed programs list, click the 2007 Office version that you have installed.
3. Click Change.
4. Click Add or Remove features, and then click Continue.
5. Expand Office Tools.
6. Click Microsoft Office Document Imaging, and then click Run all from My Computer.
7. Click Continue.

Hello everyone!
My problem is like above, installed the Office 2007 without MS Office Document Imaging, but took the install disk again and re-install the missing component, and got a printer named Microsoft Office Document Image Printer. I have tried to print a document by this printer, selected the location of the mdi file in a window, then nothing was happened. No file created on this folder and I don't now why.
Has anyone idea for this incomprehensible problem Please anyone tell me how can I get to operate this document printer! It is important for my work

I needed the tool for the OCR capability and had not tried what you are attempting. I opened an existing word document, clicked the print icon, selected Microsoft Office Document Image Writer as the printer, selected my desktop as the "SaveAs" location, then clicked the Save button. I should note that the only type of file I am able to generate is a TIFF file. But, it did generate a file with all pages intact which I was able open and view in the MODI tool.

Was your example document an Office document (.doc, .xls, etc.). If not, maybe the driver can only interprest MS formats.

Did it contain any data Maybe it won't generate a file if the source is empty.

Did you click the final Save button after selecting the location to save the file I assume so, but you didn't explicitly indcate so in your post.

If it was a MS Office document with data and you did click the save button, then I'm out of ideas.

When I click change nothing happens. The Enterprise setup dialouge box appears for about two seconds, then disappears and nothing else happens. I need this printer to be able to accept internet faxes.
